Requirement 5

Participate in a lifestyle fitness program for your age such as:

The President's Challenge Active Lifestyle Program is a program designed to bring a person's physical activity and dietary habits into a healthy balance. Visit their website to sign up.

Live Healthy Bermuda is related to Live Healthy America. They sponsor a 10 week Wellness Challenge and other programs.

In Canada the http://www.participaction.com/ ParticipACTION Teen Challenge would be an appropriate program.

The President's Challenge offers several alternative programs. The Presidential Youth Fitness Program (which measures improvement for students in grades 4-12) or the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+) which requires:

Kids and teens (that’s anyone between 6 and 17 years), your goals are:

Physical activity. 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 (goal: 12,000).

Healthy eating. Each week, you’ll also focus on a healthy eating goal. There are eight to choose from, and each week you will add a new goal while continuing with your previous goals. By the end of the six weeks, you’ll be giving your body more of the good stuff it needs.

Adults (that’s anyone aged 18 and older), your goals are:

Physical activity. 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).

Healthy eating. Each week, you’ll also focus on a healthy eating goal. There are eight to choose from, and each week you will add a new goal while continuing with your previous goals. By the end of the six weeks, you’ll be giving your body more of the good stuff it needs.

Note that this is a Health and Fitness requirement for all advanced class levels, so it would be best to coordinate participation as a group.
