Presidential Youth Fitness Program

Skip 3

Now it’s easier to get in—and stay in—the zone. The Presidential Youth Fitness Program gives students a head start on being fit for life. FITNESSGRAM®, the program's health-based assessment, rewards kids for scores that qualify in the Healthy Fitness Zone® standards. Because only small amounts of regular exercise produce big health benefits, most students who participate in regular physical activity will earn the chance to get recognized.

The President’s Challenge Physical Fitness Test will no longer be available after the 2012–2013 school year. The transition from this test to the Presidential Youth Fitness Program and the FITNESSGRAM® assessment will be complete by the start of the 2013–2014 school year. You can implement the new program now!
