In 2010, the National Fitness Foundation was established as the only congressionally chartered nonprofit focused on health & fitness. With drastic declines in youth physical activity levels throughout the decades and consequences that were quickly shortening life expectancies, the Foundation set out on an urgent mission to prepare and empower children to be fit for life. By scaling national programs and pioneering innovative solutions, our work champions lifelong health and fitness among our nation's youth so that every child can reach their full potential.

Step by step, child by child,

this is how we move fitness forward.
