FIT CITY SA
Fit City SA
is the main community portal for health and fitness in San Antonio and is powered by the Mayor’s Fitness Council. Former San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro appointed the Mayor’s Fitness Council (MFC) in May 2010. The mission of the Mayor’s Fitness Council is to lead San Antonio to be one of the healthiest and most active communities in the nation in which residents, groups and organizations work collaboratively to achieve targeted health and fitness goals. The Mayor’s Fitness Council is divided into several committees that work together to achieve these goals. The Active Living and Nutrition Committees decide on initiatives and messaging to be promoted in the following areas: Community, Healthcare, Healthy Schools, Work site Wellness. The Policy Committee works to advance health and fitness-related policies in all areas and the Media and Promotions and Development Committees work to support and develop the Mayor’s Fitness Council.
