A note from the author:

When revising IHRSA's publication The Economic Benefits of Regular Exercise, I was struck by the amount of research that shows how even small lifestyle changes can yield dramatic improvements. This is the message I think we are compelled to share with policy makers, legislators, our communities and individuals.

As the debate over health care reform rages on, one thing is certain?exercise is indeed a powerful form of medicine, capable of preventing and treating almost every form of illness that strikes our population. Despite the volume of scientific evidence documenting the economic and health benefits of regular exercise, some individuals are quick to dismiss physical activity programs as impractical or unrealistic strategies for health care cost containment and illness prevention. We as fitness professionals know better. Regardless of your beliefs about universal vs. private coverage, there is no dispute that if every American were to become more physically active, our nation?s health would improve dramatically.

I am pleased that IHRSA continues to develop resources to help clubs make the case for wellness, whether at work, at home or on Capitol Hill. Members may not realize that there is a wealth of free material in the resource center, and there are always new publications at I urge all industry professionals to take advantage of these resources to help educate, motivate and empower our communities and leaders to embrace active, healthy lifestyles.
