    The La Sierra program got popular at a time when America was alot more prosperous for the middles class compared to later years when subjects like music, PE, literature are being underfunded. It was also around the time of JFK's presidential youth fitness program. I'm not sure if the movement was tsomething to counter the PE system in the then Soviet Union.

    If I'm not mistaken a lot of the fitness stuff happened just after WW2. My understanding is when the launched the draft for the war the military was struck at what poor shape the draftees were in. There were numerous programs that were launched. I remember the stuff we had to do in elementary school in the 70's. Presidential Physical Fitness program I think it was called.

    We can learn some things by listening to those that came before us.
