The President’s Challenge is the premier program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition administered through a co-sponsorship agreement with SHAPE America. The President’s Challenge helps people of all ages and abilities increase their physical activity and improve their fitness through research-based information, easy-to-use tools, and friendly motivation.
Since our founding as a fitness test for youth in the 1960s, we’ve grown to include these challenges:
Over the years, we’ve recognized the fitness achievements of more than 50 million kids and teens, bestowed more than 1 million PALA+ and Presidential Champions awards, and helped countless people live more active, healthier lives.
