An excellent way to start regular exercise and improve eating habits is to earn a SCOUTStrong Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA). The SCOUTStrong PALA is designed to motivate participants to be physically active on a regular basis by encouraging them to participate in activities they enjoy and to improve their eating habits.

To earn the SCOUTStrong PALA Challenge Award, a participant is required to meet an activity goal of 30 minutes a day for adults and 60 minutes a day for those under 18 at least five days a week for a total of six weeks. The participants choose their activities and strive to reach their goals, logging their physical activity along the way. Participants can take up to eight weeks to complete the program.

You can learn more about the SCOUTStrong PALA at the SCOUTStrong PALA website.
