The Foundation is proud to lead national programs and initiatives that are designed so that all children can have a lifetime of health and fitness. 


At the heart of the Foundation is the Presidential Youth Fitness Program, the national model for fitness education and assessment in schools.

Established in 2012 to empower students to be fit for life, the program modernized fitness education in schools by providing free access to best practices:

  1. Accredited training for physical educators
  2. The national youth fitness assessment standards
  3. Student & school recognition items
  4. Grants for equipment, professional development, recognition & more!


Our signature initiative, the Presidential Youth Fitness Program, trains physical educators to empower students to be fit for life and provides high-quality PE resources to schools across the country.


3.2M+ kids engaged in the program

6200+ schools implementing the program

1200 Physical Educators trained by national experts

$3M+ grants distributed to districts & schools in 47 states


Sixty years ago, the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition was established to strengthen American youth through fitness. The #0to60 Campaign was developed by the Foundation & Council to celebrate 60 years of fitness by accelerating our nation's journey to living healthy.
