May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month

National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is a great time to spread the word about the benefits of getting active.

Regular physical activity is good for everyone’s health. People of all ages and body types can be physically active.

Communities, health professionals and families can work together to create opportunities for everyone to get more physical activity.

Physical activity can…
1. Improve muscular fitness, bone health and heart health
2. Lower the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer
3. Lower the risk of falls and improve cognitive functioning (like learning and judgment skills)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages everyone to engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors such as healthy eating, active living and taking steps to help prevent chronic diseases.
