Health-E-tips’ JAM School Program and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation have teamed up for the second annual Just-A-Minute (JAM) World Record. On Thursday, September 26th millions of kids and adults will be participating to set a new record for the most people taking a one-minute fitness break. JAM World Record was created to promote the importance of everyone being active every day and encourage millions of kids and adults to take “just-a-minute” to get up and get moving.

The JAM School Program brings physical activity and health education into the classroom. JAM is designed to teach kids (and adults) healthier lifestyle habits. JAM is a free wellness resource for schools. The Alliance for a Healthier Generation works to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and to empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits. The Alliance works with more than 17,000 schools to increase access to healthier foods and physical activity for students and staff.

JAM World Record 2013 has a goal to rally 3 million people to participate in this year’s event, more than doubling last year’s inaugural record of just over 1.3 million.

No Alabama schools have registered so far.  Sign your school up today!
Registration is now open at www.jamworldrecord.org. Individuals and groups are encouraged to register and ensure their participation counts toward the record-setting event.
The state that rallies the most people to sign up and count in their state's record will earn the national JAM title. 
It Only Takes a Minute


Use it with your JAM routines, in your videos, during JAM Day or to stay motivated every day.
