The concept of physical fitness and conditioning has played a major role in the historical development of the world. The fall of nations has been accompanied by the deterioration of fitness ideals. The knowledge that the strength of a country is no greater than the collective physical well-being of its people has brought increased emphasis to our nation!s concern for physical fitness. President Kennedy stated that: "It is of great importance, then, that we take immediate steps to insure that every American child be given the opportunity to make and keep himself physically fit fit to learn, fit to understand, to grow in grace and stature, to fully live." Kennedy aptly concluded that, "our growing softness, our increasing lack of physical fitness is a menace to our security. The strength of 3 youth and fitness of our adults are among our most important assets."
