The 2nd annual Mayor’s Fitness Challenge is a six week program designed to move the community toward a higher quality of life by encouraging healthy eating and exercise. It is part of Mayor Curtatone’s successful Shape Up Somerville campaign, which I’ve mentioned in previous posts (like this one).
Last year, Somerville residents lost a collective 390.4 lbs – a pretty impressive start for this annual event. Though the challenge began on April 2 this year, it’s not too late to get involved: there are all kinds of free fitness activities and health events going on in town, like Zumba and pilates. There’s something for all ages and fitness levels, and a schedule of programs can be found here.
