• Physical Fitness for All

    by C. Carson Conrad May 1980

    This article originally appeared in the May 1980 issue of AB with the headline, “Do We Have the Desire and Determination to Promote Physical Fitness for All?”


    The rationale for the first National Conference on Physical Fitness and Sports for All was a conviction that our knowledge and understanding of physical fitness and sport have outrun the dissemination and application of new information.

    The conference represents merely the first step in addressing the problems that it was called to consider. The second step—and it is the longer and more difficult of the two—involves carrying this information back to the areas that we represent and seeing that it is put into practice. Unless we do that, our efforts here will have been largely in vain.
