A Healthier Nation: It’s Everyone’s Challenge

July 09, 2008 National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) calls on all members to be more active and join the National President’s Challenge.

Colorado Springs, CO – The NSCA is joining the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports to encourage its members to join the National President’s Challenge – a six week physical activity program designed to get America up and moving.

“I’m very excited to take part in the President’s Challenge, and it’s very important to support promoting an active lifestyle,” says NSCA’s Executive Director, Robert Jursnick, “Not only is the challenge a great way to gain recognition and promote school or corporate wellness goals, it’s simple and free.”

The National President’s Challenge takes physical activity beyond the school gym and into everyday life. Everyone aged six and older are encouraged to join the Challenge, be active five days a week, and log their activity on their personal activity tracker for six weeks. The theme for the National President’s Challenge 2008 is “A Healthier Nation: It’s Everyone’s Challenge.”

The National President’s Challenge will kick-off on March 20 and end May 15. Participants can register for the Challenge between March 1 and April 3 for free at www.presidentschallenge.org. Participants can join as an individual or create a group with friends, family, co-workers and students.
