During National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, we highlight the importance of integrating exercise into our daily routines and encourage all our citizens to live more active lives. Physical fitness benefits both the body and the mind. Regular exercise, along with healthy eating habits, helps prevent serious health problems, improves productivity, and promotes better sleep and relaxation. Maintaining an active lifestyle reduces the risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, heart disease, and certain cancers. Americans can improve their health and well-being by dedicating a small part of each day to physical activity. As children grow, athletic activities teach them important life lessons and help prepare them for the opportunities ahead. Sports are a way for young Americans to meet new friends, discover the value of teamwork, discipline, and patience, and learn to win and lose with respect for others. From baseball to mountain biking to swimming, sports and physical activities can be a great chance to get outdoors and enjoy memorable experiences with family and friends. Through the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, my Administration is promoting the incorporation of physical activity into daily life and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The Council’s website, www.fitness.gov, provides information on steps individuals can take to live better and more productive lives. Programs like ‘‘The President’s Challenge’’ help individuals set fitness goals and work hard to achieve them. I urge all Americans to set aside time to improve their health through physical fitness and sports, and I encourage individuals to help motivate their family and friends to get out and exercise. By contributing to a culture of health and well-being in America, citizens help demonstrate the strength and character of our great country. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 2005 as National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. I call upon the people of the United States to make daily physical activity a priority in their lives and to recognize the numerous benefits of an active lifestyle. I also call on all Americans to celebrate this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Physical fitness is vital to a healthy lifestyle. 
                During National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, we 
                highlight the importance of integrating exercise into 
                our daily routines and encourage all our citizens to 
                live more active lives.

                Physical fitness benefits both the body and the mind. 
                Regular exercise, along with healthy eating habits, 
                helps prevent serious health problems, improves 
                productivity, and promotes better sleep and relaxation. 
                Maintaining an active lifestyle reduces the risk of 
                chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, 
                heart disease, and certain cancers. Americans can 
                improve their health and well-being by dedicating a 
                small part of each day to physical activity.

                As children grow, athletic activities teach them 
                important life lessons and help prepare them for the 
                opportunities ahead. Sports are a way for young 
                Americans to meet new friends, discover the value of 
                teamwork, discipline, and patience, and learn to win 
                and lose with respect for others. From baseball to 
                mountain biking to swimming, sports and physical 
                activities can be a great chance to get outdoors and 
                enjoy memorable experiences with family and friends.

                Through the President's Council on Physical Fitness and 
                Sports, my Administration is promoting the 
                incorporation of physical activity into daily life and 
                the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The Council's 
                website, www.fitness.gov, provides information on steps 
                individuals can take to live better and more productive 
                lives. Programs like ``The President's Challenge'' help 
                individuals set fitness goals and work hard to achieve 
                them.

                I urge all Americans to set aside time to improve their 
                health through physical fitness and sports, and I 
                encourage individuals to help motivate their family and 
                friends to get out and exercise. By contributing to a 
                culture of health and well-being in America, citizens 
                help demonstrate the strength and character of our 
                great country.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim May 2005 as National 
                Physical Fitness and Sports Month. I call upon the 
                people of the United States to make daily physical 
                activity a priority in their lives and to recognize the 
                numerous benefits of an active lifestyle. I also call 
                on all Americans to celebrate this month with 
                appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and twenty-ninth.
