The 3rd Annual Mayor’s Fitness Challenge Kick Off took place on Saturday, March 31 in the Somerville High Gymnasium. The day featured complimentary fitness bags, exercise demonstrations, healthy snacks and other family-friendly activities and exhibits by Somerville-based organizations promoting a healthy lifestyle. It was also a day for Fitness Challenge participants to weigh in and get revved up to win.
Over the next seven weeks, participants will push themselves and each other to reach personal fitness goals. And they will compete for prizes as individuals and in teams of 10, earning points for losing weight, improving their body mass index (based on their ratio of weight to height) and participating in healthy community events.
