Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 7, 2009 -- The International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) and fitness professionals across the nation gathered today in Washington, DC to meet with their Congressional members, asking for their support of health promotion legislation to remove federal barriers from exercise, and to reward Americans for choosing to lead healthy lifestyles. During the 7th Annual IHRSA Summit for a Healthier America, fitness advocates wlll encourage the passage of the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act (H.R.2105) and The Workforce Health Improvement Program (WHIP) Act (H.R. 2106 and S. 913), both recently re-introduced in Congress.

"We are gathered in our nation's Capitol to urge our Congressional leaders to integrate exercise as preventive medicine into the health care reform legislation our country so desperately needs," said Joe Moore, IHRSA President and CEO. "Passage of the WHIP and PHIT Acts will play a critical role in reversing our current system of 'sick care' into 'health care' and will empower Americans to take control of their health. The time is now for every fitness professional to share their story with their Congressional members and ask for their backing of this legislation."
