PLAY 60â€¦GET FIT FOR ACADEMIC REASONS
The NFLâ€™s â€œPlay 60â€ logo is emblazoned on every NFL field and scoreboard. During TV broadcasts, â€œPlay 60â€ commercials appear about four times a game.
The NFLâ€™s â€œPlay 60â€ program challenges kids to be physically active for 60 minutes-a-day doing anything they loveâ€¦as long as they are moving. Both individuals and schools are challenged to get involved.
Equally important are the significant academic, concentration and mood benefits derived from regular physical activity.
As proven in the Active Living Research study from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, there is direct correlation between active living on academic performance. For example, with physical activity, academic performance improves, as does cognitive performance and overall classroom behavior. Read the entire study here.
