Presidential Youth Fitness Program(PYFP)
Physical activity is critical to our children’s health and well-being. Research shows that children with better health are in school more days, are better able to learn, have higher self-esteem and are at lower risk for developing chronic diseases.
What is the Presidential Youth Fitness Program?
The Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP) is a free, voluntary program that focuses on three areas:
• Professional development for physical educators
• A health-related fitness assessment
• Motivational recognition to empower students to adopt and maintain an active lifestyle
The PYFP provides a model for fitness education within a comprehensive, quality physical education program. It emphasizes appropriate instructional practices and communication before, during and after the fitness assessment takes place.
The program uses FITNESSGRAM®, which provides an efficient way for physical educators to perform evidence-based health-related fitness assessments.
In accordance with The new Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP), Beanie Yogini assesses kids’ fitness as it relates to their health—instead of athletic performance.
