    "Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."

    --John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States 
     

    "People have to recognize the power of what being fit does to the learner; does to the learner's brain; does to their ability to take in information -- to sort through it, to store it, to bring it back, to manipulate it in their minds."                                       
    --Dr. John Ratey
