Join NSGA's Commitment to the Presidential Champions awards program!
The NSGA is proud to be an official Advocate for the Presidential Champions awards program offered by The President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN).
Executive Director Shellie Pfohl came to the 2013 National Senior Games Presented by Humana in Cleveland to admire competition, physical activity of seniors and to express her support for the Senior Games Movement at our Personal Best presentation. To close the program, NSGA CEO Marc T. Riker signed the President's Challenge Advocate Letter of Agreement pledging to spread the word about these programs as part of the NSGA mission to promote health and wellness to all adults 50+ through education, fitness and sports.
The President’s Challenge has motivated millions to get fit, to feel better about themselves, and to lead active lifestyles. Young or old, it’s about choosing to live healthier while doing things you really like to do...like participating in senior sports!
SuperTracker, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s free online food and activity tracking tool, has incorporated Presidential Champions as another way for Americans ages six and older to make regular physical activity a permanent part of a healthy, active lifestyle. Presidential Champions is now easily accessible to SuperTracker’s millions of users! With one simple tool you can set a foundation to help make your 2017 health goals a reality.
Participating in Presidential Champions is as easy as tracking your daily physical activity using the Physical Activity Tracker. You can search for your favorite physical activity or import your activity from your Fitbit. There are countless activities that you can choose – from archery and active gaming to yoga and Zumba, and many more in-between.
As you log activity in SuperTracker, you instantly earn points that lead to four different Presidential Champions award levels – bronze, silver, gold, or platinum. The program can be started at any time and does not end, so you can always pick up right where you left off. Presidential Champions can also be repeated after all awards have been earned, and since 2003 the most dedicated participants have earned as many as eight platinum awards!
To celebrate your achievements in Presidential Champions, the National Foundation on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition offers award and recognition items for reaching each Presidential Champions awards level. Visit the Foundation website to learn how to reward yourself, or recognize your friends, family, or coworkers for their commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
