The Presidential Fitness Challenge
Today more than ever, our students need help leading active, healthy lives. That’s where educators come in. They’re on the front lines of fitness, working to teach our kids the fundamentals of healthy living.
The President’s Challenge wants to help. We created the Physical Fitness Test as a tool to help educators bring out the best in their students.
Awards for Everyone
The Physical Fitness Test recognizes students for their level of physical fitness in five activities:
- Curl-ups (or partial curl-ups)
- Shuttle run
- Endurance run/walk
- Pull-ups (or right angle push-ups or flexed-arm hang)
- V-sit reach (or sit and reach)
We know that just completing all five activities is an accomplishment. To celebrate this fitness feat, we offer three awards for students, based on their scores.
