Team Southlake Went All Out for the Fit City Challenge

The Fit City Challenge is officially over, and the results are ready!

Team Southlake might not have taken home the Fit City trophy, but we accomplished some incredible feats over the last 45 days. We showed the entire community that there is nothing we can’t achieve with a little determination, team spirit, and healthy competition!

Here are the final results:

Team Southlake: 752.5 points

Team Keller: 756.2 points

As you can see, it was an extremely close competition. We didn’t win the overall championship, but we overcame obstacles, stepped out of our comfort zones, and claimed personal victories. You can’t quantify that with mere numbers! We are incredibly proud of everyone that participated in the challenge and took their fitness journey to the next level!

For those who love looking at metrics, these incredible stats that demonstrate how hard Team Southlake competed in this challenge are for you.

Total Miles Logged: 15,598.89 (the Proclaimers have nothing on us!)

Total Steps: 82,943,183

Total Points: 473,259

Total Participants: 630 Southlake residents!

The Fit City Challenge was an astonishing competition. We rallied together as a community and dedicated ourselves to getting out and being active! Not only that, but we had fun doing it too!

Here’s what a couple of Team Southlakers had to say about participating in the challenge:

“It’s been awesome being a part of the Fit City Challenge, representing the City of Southlake. My workouts began on February 1, Monday through Saturday. I woke up at 5:00 AM to get to the gym by 5:30 AM, with my target event being the Caveman Triathlon on April 10 in Flower Mound. My goal is to complete 20 triathlons before the close of 2022!” Jenny Vidotto.

“The competition was super close! Win or lose, we got some great engagement and feedback, so that’s a win in my book!” Jake Coldren, Fitness and Performance Supervisor.

The challenge may be over, but it’s no time to lose momentum! Challenge yourself to continue working towards 45 active minutes a day for optimal health and balance. Way to go, Team Southlake!
