The President's Challenge Physical Activity and Fitness Awards Program (The President's Challenge), a program of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, is designed to motivate all Americans to become and stay physically active on a regular basis. Well known for the physical fitness test, the President's Challenge recently expanded its Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) and initiated a new Presidential Champions program. The PALA recognizes children (ages 6-18) for being active at least 60 minutes per day five days/week and adults/seniors for being active at least 30 minutes per day five days/week for a period of six weeks. The Presidential Champions program is for those individuals who are already active and looking for more of a challenge as they work towards earning presidential recognition. Aside from providing an on-line activity log and other information for the general public, educators and youth leaders can download information on how to implement and use these programs directly from the website.Physical Best
