The following is from https://www.presidentschallenge.org/about/index.shtml:
The President’s Challenge is the premier program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition administered through a co-sponsorship agreement with the Amateur Athletic Union. The President’s Challenge helps people of all ages and abilities increase their physical activity and improve their fitness through research-based information, easy-to-use tools, and friendly motivation.

A new assessment that champions health over performance.
The Presidential Youth Fitness Program focuses on making kids healthy and active
for life. The Physical Fitness Test will not be available after the 2013–2014 school
year—you can transition to the Presidential Youth Fitness Program now!
We know a lot more about healthy living now than we did nearly three decades ago, when the first national youth fitness test was born. Experts in health and fitness education developed an assessment, FITNESSGRAM®, that accurately measures a student’s health—not just performance in physical tests. The program also includes professional development for educators and recognition for students.
