Fall in love with your shape by taking the February Fitness Challenge. Anyone from kids to seniors can challenge themselves with manageable ways to earn the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award. Plus did we mention some hard-earned gifts you can get along the way? The key is to keep personal goals of staying active and eating healthy for six out of eight weeks.

Activities come in all sizes

It’s easier to be active than you think—activities can include anything from gardening or playing with kids to yoga or swimming.  Adults need to stay active 30 minutes a day for five days a week while kids need to stay active 60 minutes a day, five days a week.


Healthy eating at home or on the go

Load up on fruits, veggies, whole grains and plenty of water to hit your weekly healthy eating goal. That goes for kids, too.


Stay on track

Log your activity at www.presidentschallenge.org for this month and next. Need a little boost? Be sure to tell others about your February fitness plan—if people know, you won’t want to disappoint them! Another tip is to work out with a friend because it’s just more fun!

Then reward yourself with a badge, t-shirt or certificate (and hopefully a new outlook, too). Whew! You deserve it.
