Mayor Daniel Alemán Jr. is challenging the community to Get Fit mentally, physically and financially in 2024! Get Fit Mesquite is a self-improvement program that encourages residents to practice health and wellness physically, mentally and financially.
From mental health workshops and financial tips to fitness challenges and discounts on fitness classes at recreation centers, residents will have opportunities to learn more about how to get in shape during the new year.
Programming is ongoing and will continue all year long, so check the website often and the City's social media accounts for updates.
As part of Get Fit Mesquite, residents are encouraged to participate in a free statewide health competition called the "It's Time Texas Community Challenge." The eight-week program starts on Jan. 8. Texans will compete and earn points by eating healthy, being active, and staying hydrated. Using the Community Challenge mobile app, participants can track their progress while earning points for themselves, their organization, and their local community.
