In 1962, JFK gave a speech to the nation challenging them to make a "great national effort." He held the La Sierra High PE up as the model for the nation to follow. 4,000 high schools followed this program. This is the only known digitized copy of his speech. The footage shows one high school PE class. Remember, this is a normal PE class at the high school. This was PE 50 years ago in America! This is just a small part of a full documentary film project we are working on that shows the "why" behind vigorous physical exercise. It has interviews with top MD's and Ph.D's from Harvard Medical School, MIT, Cleveland Clinic, MUSC, etc., and summarizes over 1,000 peer reviewed studies linking vigorous physical exercise to emotional health, high academic test scores, and productivity.
This is not about our waist line. We plan to bring it to theaters in the summer of 2016. Help us make this film a reality. Consider supporting the full documentary film project here: https://www.indiegogo.com/proj....ects/jfkchallenge/x/
You can also order the "Strength & Endurance Routine" which was the "secret sauce" this school used 50 years ago to get the kids in amazing shape. This "SE Routine" was filmed in the original gym and includes a 2-bundle package of a 40 minute instruction video and a 12 minute routine video. https://www.reelhouse.org/reve....nuereserve/se-routin
