2018 National Health Through Fitness Day

2019 Shows Great Momentum & Hope for the PHIT Act

 
Within one week, the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act (S. 680, H.R. 1679) was introduced in both the United States Senate and House of Representatives, and SFIA hosted the 20th annual National Health Through Fitness Day. Needless to say, the PHIT Act definitely entered the congressional space with a strong presence. Professional athletes, sports and fitness executives, and healthy lifestyle advocates joined together to meet with members of Congress and Senate to promote the bill, which would allow all Americans to use pre-tax dollars to cover activity-related expenses. With chronic disease affecting a majority of the American population & healthcare spending increasing, it is time America focuses on means of prevention, and not only treatment. Physical activity, the "wonder drug," must be more affordable, so more Americans can participate and have the means to provide the foundation for their children to lead healthy lifestyles, as well.
