Historically, we've been around since 1956. We started out under President Eisenhower as the President's Council on Youth Fitness. President Kennedy changed our name to physical fitness and sports, 2010, President Obama added nutrition to our names, so now we represent really both sides of the energy equation.

Energy in and energy out. Our mission is to educate, engage and empower all Americans to lead a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition.
