Fit City is an initiative between the City of Valparaiso, the mayor's office, and the Valparaiso Department of Parks and Recreation. Fit City programs focus on the four key areas listed below for improvement in your life:
Body - Physically being the best you can be
Character - Challenging yourself by taking a step out of the ordinary
Community - Taking time for your family, engaging in social activities with friends, volunteering your time, or meeting someone new
Mind - Never ceasing to discover more about yourself or the world
Ways to Participate
Since 2005, thousands of people have participated in Fit City programs, and the movement toward a healthier city continues today! We encourage you to do more today than you did yesterday. Ways to participate include:
Parking your car farther away from the door to walk more
Reading a good book instead of watching television all night
Utilizing the walking paths and bicycle routes located throughout our city
Fit City Council
Spearheading the ongoing efforts to keep Valparaiso a great place to live, work, and play, the Fit City Council's representatives from local schools, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations are always developing new ways to bring fitness into our community and to keep a healthy lifestyle in mind.
