Austin has always had fitness and music as its claim to fame. However, a recent study released by the American Fitness Index put Austin as the 31st place among the country’s fittest cities — a 17-point drop over six years. Now, Austin is working to prove its commitment to fitness by participating in regional nonprofit It’s Time Texas’ annual Community Challenge competing against other metros like San Antonio, Houston and Corpus Christi.
Currently, Austin ranks No. 1 on the Community Challenge leaderboard as Austinites have racked up over 725,600 points. Find out more on how to get involved to prove that Austin is a fit city!
