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
Physical education provides the student with a legitimate outlet to vent his innate physical activity. He will be less frustrated and less prone to get into scraps with other students. Since physical education also requires the student to spend time with other children in the open, it also fosters their social skills. Fitness is another important reason; the food that is available today puts them on the highway to obesity.
Physical education keeps the child physically and mentally healthy. While playing sports one begins to get a sense of competition, which is something that will be with him for the rest of his life. Sports will help them to get along with a diversified group of people.
Physical education which is commonly a part of the curriculum at University level includes training in the development and care of the human body and maintaining physical fitness. Physical education is also about sharpening overall cognitive abilities and motor skills via athletics, exercise and various other physical activities.
