Be Fit For fun!


I have started a group to take the President's Challenge together. You are invited to be part of it!

The President's Challenge is a series of programs designed to help improve anyone's activity level. Joining a group is a great way to make staying active easy by sharing in the fun of exercise.

Overview of the Presidents Challenge
The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports conducts programs and campaigns that emphasize the importance of regular physical activity, fitness and sports participation for children, adults, seniors and persons with disabilities. Through its programs, partnerships, publications and Web sites ( and, the Council strives to promote daily moderate physical activity for disease prevention and health, vigorous physical activity for fitness and added health benefits, and sports participation including the values of sportsmanship.

History of the Presidents Challenge
The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports was first established as the President's Council on Youth Fitness, on July 16, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower after the President learned the results of a report indicating that American children were less fit than European youth. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy changed the name of the Council to the President's Council on Physical Fitness, expanded the mandate to all Americans as well as youth, and clarified the purpose and function of the Council. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson broadened the Council's mission to include sports and changed the name to the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

Staying active with others can be a lot of fun. They'll help keep you motivated - even when you don't really feel like it. Groups are a great way to meet new people. There are even programs for people at different activity levels: the Active Lifestyle program aimed at beginners, and the Presidential Champions program for those who are already active.

Signing up for a group is simple. And there's no limit to how many groups you can belong to or how many are in your group. You can join or leave at any time. All you have to do is register. The personal information you enter will not be seen by anyone in the group; i.e., name, weight, height, age, etc. As group administrator, I can only see your user name, member I.D., which program you select, number of points, and your last activity date. Again, I cannot view any of your personal information; i.e., name, weight, height, age, etc. If you do not tell me your user name, I will not know who to link the user name too anyway.

It's quick, and there's no cost just to participate!
