The Sports & Fitness Industry Association paid tribute to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN), a great friend of sports, a believer in fitness, and a longtime supporter of increased physical activity in America, especially for young people. A longtime supporter of the PHIT Act, Congressman Fleischmann sees the need to lower family physical activity expenses. Mr. Fleischmann is currently leading the effort to capture the economic impact of youth sports in America; to show the benefits beyond health. Congressman Fleischmann understands physical activity is key to good mental and physical health.
Mr. Fleischmann leads by example, as a regular in the gym and a three-sport athlete in Congress, playing on the Congressional football, baseball, and basketball teams. The Congressman is a true champion of health and fitness, practicing what he preaches in Congress, the gym, and on sports teams. SFIA is proud to recognize Representative Fleischmann for his commitment to sports and dedication to increasing activity for a healthier America.
