Looking for a new fitness program? How about trying the Presidential Fitness Challenge. This challenge comes in three varieties:

1. The Active Lifestyle Program - For those of you who aren't active on a daily basis yet, this is a great way to begin. The rules are basically to get a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week, for a total of 6 weeks.

2. The Presidential Champions Program - If you're already active and want a new challenge, this program is for you. Your goal is to see how many points you can earn by staying active. Points are based on the amount of energy each activity burns. So the more active you are, the more points you'll get. When you reach 20,000 points, you'll earn a Bronze award. Then you can continue on in the Presidential Champions program for a Silver or Gold award.

3. The Advanced Performance Presidential Champions Program - This is basically the same system as the Presidential Champions Program, except that the award goals are higher. For instance, you need to get 40,000 points to earn a Bronze award.

The Presidential Champions Fitness Program Website (where you can log your progress and also order your awards when you've reached your goal)

Also, if you want, come join the LJ pres_challenge community to chat with others who are challenging themselves with this program.

greetings! it's so good to find this community. i know a couple other people in colorado springs looking for support. i'll have to direct them to this community!

my name is cheryl and i'm 23. i grew up just outside of new orleans. i also grew up with southern food and in one of the fattest states in the country. when i entered college in colorado springs, i was 180. i slowly crept up to 200 and when i quit smoking two years ago, i hit 225. i did the atkins diet for about four months and lost 50 pounds. however as soon as i started eating anything but low carb i started gaining weight.

i'm back up to 230. i have a lot of trouble with my weight because i have hypothyroidism. i can look at a donut and gain five pounds. i just joined a gym (much like curves) this past week. i've lost five pounds so far. i've also decided not to go back to total low carb and instead just watch portion sizes and make healthy eating choices. this time around i'd rather lose the weight more slowly.

anyway. hello!

I see this was started over a year ago, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.


I’m a 26 year old full time college student at the University of Colorado at Denver. I am double majoring in political science and psychology, because with all the things I want to student, I couldn’t pick just one. Even so, I can’t help feeling that I SHOULD be majoring in nutrition, because I find it very interesting and I share a personal struggle with finding the right information.

Nutrition should not be as confusing and difficult to understand as it is today. But, our focus on money (capitalism) in western society has taken away from the true focus of nutrition – health! I think most of the people in our country are in some kind of national social trance or hypnosis keeping them from reality. Those of us who are awake and struggling, are lost in the mess trying to sort everything out against those who are so carelessly profit driven.

The biggest challenge I can see is getting the correct information. There are so many sources of information, even among those who are serious and not profit driven, and many of them conflict with one another. My best resource has been Whole Foods Market, which I am fortunate enough to have here, but ever there, many people are confused and mixed up. The questions are complicated and there are so many different opinions out there. I am searching for a higher truth in the midst of our very superficial society.

I am not bitter or angry; quite the contrary. I am realistic and very happy to be awake. I love and embrace opportunities to help others waken from their trace, and seek with them the higher truth.

I have joined this community hoping to find truth in nutrition for health, and ultimately for life. I believe we are here to create ourselves in the highest thought of who we want to be and to know ourselves through experience. For some reason many of us seem to ignore poor nutritional experiences, and therefore fail to learn from them and make changes. And we wonder why our lives are being adversely affected.

I am excited to learn and share with you. I am very open minded, but subject information to facts a rationalism – we cannot afford not too in this complicated world of nutritional misinformation.

Thanks so much for having me,

- Don
