PHIT ACT SUPPORT SURGES AFTER 2016 NHTF DAY

National Health Through Fitness Day (NHTF Day) Overview:
SFIA National Health Through
Fitness Day (NHTF Day) is the culmination of a year round effort by the SFIA and its many sponsors and volunteers to pass major U.S. legislation to “Get America Moving”. For the past 17 years, the SFIA has brought people together in Washington, D.C. to accomplish our goals. Approximately 150 leaders from the sports, fitness, and PE industries meet in early March to lobby Congress to pass key legislation which will help our country overcome a major epidemic, obesity and sedentary lifestyles. Other attendees include company representatives from the food and beverage industry.

2016 NHTF Day Recap:
Landmark legislation to reduce consumers’ costs for sports and fitness activities took a huge step forward during 17th SFIA National Health Through Fitness (NHTF) Day, co-sponsored  by PHIT America and American College of Sports Medicine on Wednesday, March 16. More than 90 meetings with U.S. Senators and Representatives spurred unprecedented commitment for the PHIT (Personal Health Investment Today) Act, positioning the bill for possible passage later this year.
