Health First Mayors' Fitness Challenge


2019 Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge Results

Congratulations to the winner of the Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge “Most Fit City” Cocoa Beach! Thanks to the 11 communities, 2,445 registered participants and hundreds of others who joined along the way. In total, participants logged 4.4 million minutes of exercise over 8 weeks.
Each Spring Brevard Mayors challenge their citizens to get involved in a healthy competition – the Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge. The competition is entering its third year and seeing impressive increases in the number of minutes of exercise in Brevard. The challenge also includes a “Great Weight-Off” component. The individual top weight loser (calculated by percentage of weight lost) during the challenge will win a $500 cash prize. There is a top female winner and a top male winner.
The Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge began in 2017 with nine mayors and more than 1,300 community members spending 2.4 million minutes exercising. The City of Cape Canaveral won the challenge and the title of the Most Fit City for 2017. The Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge “2018 Most Fit City” was awarded to the City of Cocoa Beach.
