Take the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award Challenge

 Did Someone Say ‘Award’?
It’s easy to earn the Presidential Activity Award. All it takes is a nearly daily commitment to physical activity for 6 out of 8 weeks.  Stick with the program and you’ll earn an award in less than two months.  The Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) challenge will help you add physical activity to your life, and reward you when you do.  This challenge is for ANYONE, from students to seniors, but it’s geared toward people who want to set themselves on the path to fitness success.
  • Adults (that’s anyone over 18 years old): You need to be active 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, for 6 out of 8 weeks. As an alternative, you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer (goal: 8,500).
  • Kids and teens (that’s anyone between 6 and 17 years): You need to be active 60 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, for 6 out of 8 weeks. As an alternative, you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer (girls’ goal: 11,000; boys’ goal: 13,000).

  Starting the PALA will help you or your students:

  • Commit to daily physical activity-and stick with it.
  • Set realistic goals to encourage fitness for a lifetime.
  • Track your progress with our free personal activity log, which you can access online after you create an individual account, or on a paper log (PDF).

PALA makes fitness fun! Yes, you need to be active every day, but participants can choose all kinds of activities to meet this goal-playing with the kids, gardening, walking, playing basketball, running, yoga, and more.
