Health and Fitness by Austin’s City Hall

You probably already know that Austin is one of the fittest cities in America, but do you know about Mayor Adler’s Health and Fitness Council?

The Mayor’s Health & Fitness Council was established in 2004 to raise awareness of the cost of health care, to promote prevention of chronic diseases, to advocate for better health in Austin, and to promote the city of Austin as a healthy place to live and work, with the vision of Austin becoming “The fittest city in the U.S.”

The Mayor’s Health & Fitness Council (MHFC) is recognizing Austin’s top health and wellness programs for businesses and organizations of all types and sizes via the Mayor’s Health & Fitness Awards.
