You Can Still Take the Challenge

By June 22, 2009

Follow me on:

The President's Fitness Challenge and the Presidentís Council on Physical Fitness are here to promote a lifetime of fitness instead of brief spurts of outstanding sports achievements.

Everyone who is aged six (6) or older can participate, and inline skating is just one of many activities that qualify. Skaters who participate must skate for at least 50 hours to earn an award. A maximum of 1.5 hours can count toward your time each day.

If you earn your Presidential Sports Award in inline skating, you will have dedicated enough time to meet this challenge and improve your skating, too. What a great way for a new skater to start, a returning skater to get back into it or for a skater who is already dedicated to develop skills.

For more information about the President's Fitness Challenge and Presidential Sports Award programs, visit the Presidentís Council on Physical Fitness. Your local skating club or organization can use inline skating and roller sports to start similar youth fitness achievement programs, too.
