At Lewistown Elementary the students (Grades K - 3) can earn either a National Physical Fitness award or a Presidential Physical Fitness Award by attempting to meet the established standards for 5 exercises (90 Degree Push-Ups, Bent Knee Curl-Ups, V-Sit and Reach, Shuttle Run, and a Distance Run of 6 Laps around the gym).
The Presidential Physical Fitness Council has established standards for each of these exercises. Both these awards are very difficult to achieve with the Presidential award being the most demanding of the two.
Earning either of these awards requires these students to show commitment, dedication, and the desire to continually improve their strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness.
Students who earn the Presidential Physical Fitness Award will receive a white certificate accompanied with a blue patch and the students who earn a National Physical Fitness Award will receive a beige certificate. Both these certificates are signed by the present President of the United States.
