Orthopedic ONE Supports National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
Orthopedic ONE understands the important role that physical activity plays in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, we are proud to support the activities surrounding the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition’s National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. As part of this program, we challenge all adults to complete at least 30 minutes, and youth (ages 6-17) to rack up a minimum of 60 minutes, of physical activity each day throughout the month of May.

One way to work toward meeting your fitness and activity goals is to participate in the President’s Challenge. You can choose one of the challenges listed under the “Choose a Challenge” tab and utilize their resources and tools to track your performance. There are three main categories:
- Presidential Youth Fitness Program- Assesses the health and physical fitness levels of youth (ages 6-17).
- The Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA)- Challenges those who want to achieve a healthy lifestyle through exercise and clean eating.
- The Presidential Champions Challenge- Pushes those who are already practicing an active lifestyle to be increase the intensity and frequency of their physical activity.
Participating in one of these programs is an excellent way for the whole family to work together to improve their physical fitness!
