It is easy for a city to be part of the Mayors Fitness Challenge. We have some general rules everyone must follow but we give a lot of flexibility as to how the city implements the challenge in their area. Once a city registers and is approved, there are many tips, tools and other benefits available from PHIT America.
Here are the eight (8) basic requirements to be part of the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge:
Cities must work with a legitimate, accredited entity to do 'weigh in's' for the participants. Here are the basic parameters and steps required for the 'weigh in':
Cities may want to expand the parameters in their community; Names of participants are held private by the recording institution.
On PHITAmerica.org, cities will be ranked based on the greatest % of weight lost in the 10 week time period.
PHIT America would like to each participating city to part of the PHIT America Alliance. There is no financial obligation to be part of PHIT America or the Mayors Fitness Challenge.
Note: PHIT America will post results from cities who are part of the Challenge. To qualify for the national Mayors Fitness Challenge City of the Year, a city must have at lease 50 local participants or ¼ of 1% of the population who take part of the competition during their 10 week Mayor’s Fitness Challenge.
