The Presidential Active Lifestyle Award Challenge

Sign up for the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+) Challenge, and in six short weeks you'll be more active, making better food choices, and feeling great!

Earning a PALA is doable by anyone at any fitness level with any eating habits—it just takes commitment.

Here's what you need to do:

·Adults (that's anyone over 18 years old): Meet your daily activity goal of 30 minutes of physical activity a day, at least five days a week, for six out of eight weeks. As an alternative, you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer (goal: 8,500). 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 on your way to a healthier lifestyle.

·Kids and teens (that's anyone between 6 and 17 years):Meet your daily activity goal of 60 minutes of physical activity a day, at least five days a week, for six out of eight weeks. As an alternative, you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer (girls' goal: 11,000; boys' goal: 13,000). 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 on your way to a healthier lifestyle.
