USA Triathlon is one of the latest organizations to show support of PHIT America and its efforts to fight the obesity epidemic in the United States. As a friend and supporter of USA Triathlon, your support of the PHIT Act and PEP Program, which are two vital pieces of U.S. Legislation, will help create a more active, fit and healthy America.
The PHIT Act gives Americans incentive to exercise, get fit and stay healthy by using pre-tax medical accounts to reduce the cost of being physically active.
For participants in triathlon, runners, swimmers and general sports advocates, this will mean entry fees, gym membership fees and sport or fitness equipment purchases will qualify.
