May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, designated in 1983 by the President’s Council on Fitness to promote healthy lifestyles among all Americans and improve our quality of life.

American leaders realized fitness was vital for our citizens as early as 1956, when President Eisenhower created the President’s Council on Youth Fitness, renamed in the early 1960s by President Kennedy as the President’s Council on Physical Fitness to include people of all ages.

Many local high schools are offering $10 sports physicals this month that will cover the student athletes for all of next years’ school year athletics. Laker High School is offering their physicals on May 17. Contact your local school’s office or athletic director for the date of your schools schedule.
