Whether your students are taking the first steps to fitness or already know their way around a gym, the President's Challenge has a way to recognize them for their accomplishments.

PYFP Fitness Club for Students in Grades K-3
PYFP Award

Welcome to the Club! The new PYFP Fitness Club provides you with materials to help students in grades K-3 learn about the FITNESSGRAM® test items and earn recognition for their accomplishments all while having fun.

A teacher instruction sheet identifies the testing cues a student must follow in order to check–off each health–related fitness test you select. FITNESSGRAM® tests include the:

  • Powerful PACER
  • Balanced Body Composition
  • Terrific Trunk Lift
  • Perfect Push-Up
  • Stretchy Sit and Reach

A colorful classroom poster with test descriptions allows students to track their own progress. Once students have checked all boxes (it may take multiple attempts or a few years for them to get there), a certificate can be awarded to recognize their accomplishment!

Presidential Youth Fitness Award for Students in Grades 4-12
PYFP Award

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.

What's better than feeling good and being fit? Having something to show for it! Your students can flaunt their Presidential Youth Fitness Program fitness achievements with an array of awards. Shop now!
