FITNESSGRAM assesses health-related fitness, provides individual prescriptive reports to students and parents, and provides a wide set of report metrics on the individual status of children's health.
All student and school data is protected and securely stored in the Perot International Youth Data Center.
The Healthy Zone School Recognition Program, in partnership with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, helps schools become positive mentors for students, teachers, and parents in the community.
Participating schools may be honored for healthy practices, receive financial grants, and more.
Cooper International Youth Fitness Test (CIYFT) is a robust and customizable fitness assessment software adapted uniquely for participating countries and based off of scientifically-proven software, FITNESSGRAM.
The ability to create customized CYIFTs per country extends The Cooper Institute's reach into regions where student health needs improvements.
FITNESSGRAM is provided in partnership with NFL Foundations as a part of the NFL PLAY 60 program.
In 2009, NFL Foundation awarded The Cooper Institute $4 million to support the NFL PLAY 60 campaign, an initiative that challenges youth to be active 60 minutes a day.
In 2012, FITNESSGRAM became the national fitness assessment when it was adopted by The Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP).
PYFP is a voluntary program that includes an assessment, professional development, and motivational recognition to empower students to adopt and maintain an active lifestyle.
Gifted to The Cooper Institute by Ross Perot Sr., The Perot International Youth Data Center is a highly secure data center that houses international student information for the FITNESSGRAM, NUTRIGRAM, and NFL PLAY 60 FITNESSGRAM programs.
