FitPHX is a Phoenix citywide healthy-community initiative, led by Mayor Greg Stanton, Councilman Daniel Valenzuela and Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman. The goal is to build programs and utilize existing resources to improve health and wellness in the region and make the Phoenix area one of the healthiest in the nation.
The program encourages residents to lead healthier lifestyles, focusing on childhood and adult obesity, nutrition education, walking, bicycling, the use of public transportation and healthy worksites.
City Council created FitPHX in January 2013. The city's Parks and Recreation Department oversees the program, working with the Mayor, Council and a citywide team of FitPHX champions. FitPHX also is identifying and creating mutually beneficial partnerships with businesses, nonprofits and other government agencies.
