January Printable Fitness Challenge Calendar

Our January 2023 Fitness Challenge Calendar is here!

It’s a brand new year, and an important time to encourage kids to stay active and lead a healthy lifestyle. This calendar can easily be shared with students to complete in the classroom or at home.

We teamed up with the Alliance For A Healthier Generation to create this fitness calendar for the month of January. We’ve also included a Certificate of Completion and a Task Sheet.

Fitness Challenge Calendar 2023

Students are challenged each day to participate in the activities listed on the calendar. For the month of January, we’ve included basic fitness exercises, including lunges, squat jumps, heel kicks, and jump and twists. Each week, the number of repetitions for each fitness exercise increases. Please keep in mind the number of repetitions is meant as a guide, and can be adapted as needed based on age group and skill level.

On Saturdays, kids can choose their favorite hobbies to do at home with family and friends. Many of these are outdoor activities, and depending on where you live and the seasons you have, you can adapt these ideas.

January is National Hobby Month

For the month of January, we are celebrating National Hobby Month! Each Saturday, students can choose from a list of over 30 hobby ideas on page 4, or choose their own. Make sure they record on the calendar which hobbies they chose. This is a great opportunity to stay active while also spending time with family members, doing something they enjoy. They may even find a new hobby! Suggest to your students that they choose something they love, and also something they haven’t tried before to gain a new experience.

Task Sheet

Download our printable Fitness Challenge Task Sheet for your participants to fill out each day! They will record what exercises they did and put a check mark in the completed box if they completed the number of reps on the calendar. There is also a self-assessment section which is great for social emotional learning. Kids will circle the emoji that best describes how they felt after doing the exercises. The notes section is a place where they can jot down anything related to the activities, and also a great place to record their hobbies they did each Saturday this month.

  1. Thank you for this amazing tool.
    Can you post or send it to me as a typeable document so students can type into the fitness track sheet?
    Not a PDF, a word doc or google doc would be great.

  2. I love this, but it doesn’t allow me to post it to the site for my students. I don’t need a printable copy my classes are all online.

    • Hi Geraldine, what type of format would you need this in for you to be able to post it to your site? There is a PDF version that you can download. Let me know what I can help you with. Thanks!

  3. I am unable to download any material and it gives me an error message. I’ve tried it in different browsers and clicked every link.

  4. I am unable to gain access to the printable version of the calendar. Love this though and plan and would love to use it in my PE classes.

  5. It gives me the following error when I try to download.
