Getting a healthy amount of physical activity is important to any weight management plan, and it’s essential to achieving an overall healthier life! No matter your age or fitness level, there are a variety of ways that you can get active and participate in exercise that’s right for you.

May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month… Will You Celebrate with Us?

This May, the Your Weight Matters Campaign is celebrating National Physical Fitness and Sports Month — and we want YOU to join us! Learn more about the ways you can get active and improve your health, and share about the benefits of physical activity with others at the same time. Here’s how:

Exercise and YOU:

  • Be BOLD and try a brand new physical activity or sport this month for the first time
  • Challenge yourself with a new fitness goal that aligns with your exercise plan
  • Treat yourself to some new workout clothes, running shoes or fitness equipment
  • Assess your current exercise routine to track your progress

Share about Fitness with Others:

  • Encourage your family to make small changes – such as going for a walk after dinner or swimming on your afternoons off together
  • Motivate community leaders like teachers and administrators to make physical activity a part of every day
  • Post about National Physical Fitness and Sports Month online and share about the importance of exercise
  • Host a community event that engages visitors in a fun sport or physical activity

Although exercise is important at all stages and seasons of your life, this May is a great time to renew your commitment to physical activity!
