FitnessGram

 


 

The Cooper Institute developed FitnessGram, the first “student fitness report card,” in an effort to improve school physical education programs and children’s health. It is a health-related youth fitness assessment that utilizes evidence-based standards to measure the level of fitness needed for good overall health.

Through partnerships with NFL Foundation, Presidential Youth Fitness Program, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and US Games, The Cooper Institute is able to make a healthy impact in the lives of children nationwide. Used globally for more than 30 years, FitnessGram reaches more than 20,000 schools and 10 million students in the United States alone.

 

Now, the newly released 2015 FitnessGram program connects users to their data, reports and resources unlike ever before. Innovative and fresh, the new software provides a birds-eye view of student reports, health goals and much more.

Learn about the new FitnessGram and get started! Ensure your children are on the right path toward lifelong healthy living.
