Celebrate National Physical Fitness & Sports Month in May!
Stay Well. Stay Active. at Spectrum Resort Orlando
Get moving in May! Recognized during the month of May, National Physical Fitness & Sports Month provides an opportunity to celebrate and promote physical activity and the benefits of sports participation.
Benefits of Physical Fitness
Physical fitness is a state of health and well-being and, more specifically, the ability to perform aspects of sports, occupations, and daily activities. Physical fitness is generally achieved through proper nutrition, moderate-vigorous physical exercise, and sufficient rest along with a formal recovery plan.
Health.gov states: “Physical activity is key to maintaining health and well-being. Getting active can improve fitness and reduce stress, reduce risk for many chronic and cardiovascular diseases, and ease symptoms of anxiety and depression. Youth sports can help kids and teens get active and develop leadership, time management, and relationship-building skills.”
Staying active through exercise or participating in sports also provides further immediate and long-term benefits to your overall health, like improved sleep quality, coordination, bone health and metabolism, and decreased blood pressure, weight, and other health risks.
On Property at Spectrum Resort
For keep-fit enthusiasts, there’s plenty of options at Spectrum Resort to enjoy keeping up with workouts while on vacation.

Stay active and stay healthy!
National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is celebrated each May and is an initiative by the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition. Fitness isn’t just for professional athletes. As doctors and nutritionists will tell you, any physical movement is good for you.
Many people give up on their fitness goals early on due to misplaced notions of fitness. Every year in May, the council aims to dispel these myths. Exercise isn’t about the pounds you shed or the number of burpees you should be able to do. The key to an active, healthier lifestyle is consistency. No matter what you do, ensure you keep doing it, and while you’re at it, eat healthier, and make better choices each day. The simplest things are the hardest to do. But this is the key to leading a happy and healthy life.
