Date:12/17/2009

and public health professionals, insurance providers, schools, and each of us individually. The Campaign for a Healthier America is sponsored by: American Council on Exercise, CYBEX, and SPRI.

“It’s time we change the way we live as a people if we are to put our country back on track,” says Moore. “I know we can do it. Together, we can inspire one another. I invite anyone who has enjoyed the benefits of exercise to share their stories of hope and encouragement with others by visiting www.campaign4health.org.”

Other IHRSA-Organized Health Initiatives

‘I Lost It at the Club!’ is a fun and collaborative weight loss program focused on healthy living and is one of a number of consumer-focused health initiatives designed by IHRSA to offer the support people need to live healthier lives. Participating IHRSA health clubs will kick off 2010 with ‘I Lost It at The Club!’ on January 11, and the program will end on March 5th. The eight-week program will help current and prospective club members fulfill their New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get in shape. Last year’s ‘I Lost It at the Club!’ included 434 IHRSA clubs. Of the clubs who reported their results, a total of 4,857 participants lost over 22,100 lbs.

As part of the annual Get Active America! program started five years ago, a wide variety of health clubs nationwide offer health-focused programs each May and open their doors for free for several days. The goal is to make it easier to “Take Back Your Health” and include exercise as a natural part of a daily routine. Get Active America! week takes place May 3-9, 2010.

IHRSA supports health promotion legislation to help encourage more active lifestyles, such as the Workforce Health Improvement Program (WHIP) Act (H.R.2106, S.913).
