On Friday, President Trump announced his appointments to the President's Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition, a panel that's existed since 1956 to advise the president on policy matters related to healthy living. There are several unexpected picks for Trump's sports, fitness, and nutrition council, including Dr. Oz, several well-known sports figures and an actor who used to play the Incredible Hulk.
"PCSFN engages, educates, and empowers all Americans to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition," the council says on its website. "Since 1956, the Council has created and promoted programs and initiatives that motivate people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to be active and eat healthy."
Trump announced his picks to the PCSFN days after formally designating May National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. The president said in his announcement that "at the root of a healthy America are healthy citizens," and encouraged Americans to "adopt an exercise routine that allows them to reap the numerous benefits of an active lifestyle."
"This month, we celebrate and promote the benefits of physical activity and recognize those selfless individuals who volunteer their time and resources to make it possible for our Nation’s youth to participate in sports programs," Trump said in his proclamation.
Trump's appointments to the PCSFN are in the spirit of the month's theme, and there are a couple of surprising names on the list.
