WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD — The President’s Challenge for Physical Fitness is the premier program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.

The program helps people of all ages and abilities increase their physical activity and improve their fitness.

President Barack Obama created a White House Health Reform Office, April 8, 2009, which included a wellness initiative designed to integrate health, physical fitness programs, nutrition, safety and fitness facilities for federal civilian employees.

Each federal agency was tasked with assessing and expanding its civilian employees’ wellness and satisfaction initiatives, and the Secretary of Defense announced a department-wide initiative Jan. 14, to improve employee wellness, satisfaction and engagement.

The President’s Challenge for Physical Fitness is also part of the newly launched Civilian Wellness Program and supports the Installation Management Command’s Campaign Plan.

I encourage all individuals to register for this program and log their fitness activities.
Civilian employees can join the IMCOM group by entering Army IMCOM or 90878, under the group section.

On the Web: Register for this program at www.presidentschallenge.net/login/register_individual.aspx.
The Civilian Wellness Program is available at www.imcom.army.mil/hq/directorates/hr/civper/civilian_wellness and https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/637137.
