Companion/Health and Fitness



Requirement 1a

Learn the value of temperance by:
a. Memorize and sign the Temperance Pledge.


Note 1: Requirements 1a, 1b, and 1c of the Companion class Health and Fitness section also meet requirements #1, #2 and #7 of the Temperance honor. Why not complete the rest of the requirements and earn the honor while you're at it?

Note 2: Teaching Requirements 1a-c meets Health and Fitness Requirement 1 for the Guide class. Before teaching these Requirements to a group of Companions, you should coordinate with the Guide unit's counselor.

The Temperance Pledge reads as follows:


Requirement 1b

Memorizing two of the following Bible texts:

  • Romans 12:1, 2;
  • 1 Cor. 10:31;
  • Prov. 20:1;
  • 3 John 1:2.




I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:1,2 (NKJV)



Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV)



Wine is a mocker,

Strong drink is a brawler,

And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
Proverbs 20:1 (NKJV)



Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
3 John 1:2 (NKJV)

You must complete the requirements listed above this one on the current page.

Requirement 5

Use a fitness app, pedometer, or the Exercise Log to complete 10,000 steps or 30 minutes of exercise, 5 days a week for 6 weeks.



The President's Challenge Active Lifestyle Program is a program designed to bring a person's physical activity and dietary habits into a healthy balance. You can download a paper log here: PALA+ Paper Log

Patches for both PYFP and PALA+ can be ordered here: Active Lifestyle Awards Store

Certificate blanks can be found here: PALA+ Certificate

Live Healthy Bermuda is related to Live Healthy America. They sponsor a 10-week Wellness Challenge and other programs.

In Canada the http://www.participaction.com/ ParticipACTION Teen Challenge would be an appropriate program.

The President's Challenge offers several alternative programs. The Presidential Youth Fitness Program (which measures improvement for students in grades 4-12) or the President's Challenge Active Lifestyle Program (PALA+) which requires:

Kids and teens (that’s anyone between 6 and 17 years), your goals are:

Physical activity. You need to be active 60 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, for 6 out of 8 weeks. As an alternative, you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer (goal: 12,000).

Healthy eating. Each week, you’ll also focus on a healthy eating goal. There are eight to choose from, and each week you will add a new goal while continuing with your previous goals. By the end of the six weeks, you’ll be giving your body more of the good stuff it needs.

Adults (that’s anyone aged 18 and older), your goals are:

Physical activity. You need to be active 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, for 6 out of 8 weeks. As an alternative, you can count your daily activity steps using a pedometer (goal: 8,500).

Healthy eating. Each week, you’ll also focus on a healthy eating goal. There are eight to choose from, and each week you will add a new goal while continuing with your previous goals. By the end of the six weeks, you’ll be giving your body more of the good stuff it needs.

Note that this is a Health and Fitness requirement for all advanced class levels, so it would be best to coordinate participation as a group.
