Are you up to the challenge?Â Do you have what it takes to become a recipient of the Presidential Fitness Challenge?
The Presidential Fitness Challenge has been in existence since 1966.Â The Presidentâ€™s Challenge is the premiere program of The Presidentâ€™s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.Â The Presidentâ€™s Challenge assists, informs and inspires people on their journey to be active and adopt a healthier lifestyle through awards and recognition. The Presidentâ€™s Fitness Challenge consists of a one mile endurance walk/run, sit-ups, shuttle run, push-ups and a sit and reach. There are three award criteria levels:
- Presidential Physical Fitness Award – Score above 85% of qualifying standards on all five activities

It is time to make physical activity a priority. The health of our youth on Fort Irwin depends on it! Regular physical activity in our youth promotes health and fitness.
