Mayor's Fitness Challenge

Mayor Brummel and the Warrenville Bicyclist and Pedestrian Advisory Commission are again interested in motivating Warrenville residents to get fit! On Sunday, May 10, 2020, the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge returns for its ninth year! This program is designed to challenge residents to keep pace with Mayor Brummel by moving to their own healthy beat. An avid exerciser, Mayor Brummel has been riding his bike and running for years. Many may have even seen him around town or at local Forest Preserves. But like any person, motivation is tough sometimes. With the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge, Warrenville residents can motivate each other.

The Mayor’s Fitness Challenge is a program designed to inspire your competitive nature and motivate you to engage in some type of physical activity. The goal is to log in at least 150 minutes of activity each week. This program will run for 8 weeks, from May 10 to July 4, 2020.

Participants who log 1,200 minutes or more over the 8 week challenge will receive special recognition. Joining the program is easy. There is no cost, and participants must be at least 12 years old. Simply click on the "Mayor’s Fitness Challenge Log" Quick Link on the right side of this page to register.

As you exercise each week, don’t forget to log back into the website and record your time; you can do it daily or weekly. And remember, Mayor Brummel doesn’t just want you getting fit; he’s looking to motivate some healthy family time, so get your minutes together!

It’s at your discretion as to what counts as physical activity, but during the novel coronavirus pandemic, the City recommends you practice safe social distancing. The Warrenville Park District may offer a variety of programs, classes, and activities to meet your goal. Residents should check their website regularly to see what programs are available during and after the stay-at-home is lifted.
