About the Movie

This award-winning documentary explores how something as simple as exercise can be used to address our society’s seemingly impossible-to-solve challenges. The United States stopped teaching classical Physical Education 100 years ago, which did not resemble ‘PE’ as it is known today. JFK tried to bring classical Physical Education back, but that ended with his shortened Presidency. It wasn’t about balls and sports; it was about addressing a basic human requirement…one we have ignored as a population and pay the consequences for its absence every day. This documentary explores the pivotal role Physical Education plays to develop smart, productive & mentally stable citizens. It shows an eye-opening connection between the lack of activity today and the ever-growing burdens we face. This 4 year film project interviewed over 250 of the the world's leading scientists, physicians, educators, students and alumni. It’s the most comprehensive look at ‘why’ we must exercise.

A necessity!

This is an eye opening documentary! I truly believe that what is outlined in this film is the key to future happiness both in the US and abroad.

The Motivation Factor

It was a very good movie, especially for Health and PE Majors who are going into this field. It shows what PE used to be like and it shows a modern school doing PE correctly. Not many people or schools do things loke they used and notmany people or schools get out of their kids what they need to be achieving. So, this movie does a good job of showing and representing what we should be doing in our schools for Physical Education

The motivation factor

This is an eye opening documentary for anyone in the physical education field. It shows how physical education should be and how we’ve gotten away from what needs to be done in this field.
