Help make Lakewood top city for fitness

Help Lakewood become the most active city in the state by joining the Get Movin' Challenge, a statewide initiative to inspire residents to become healthier and to prove that Colorado is the healthiest state in the nation.

Get Movin’ is a friendly challenge – with yourself and with other Colorado residents. All it takes is getting 30 minutes of physical activity for 30 days in May. The city with the highest percentage of participation based on population will receive bragging rights as the most active municipality in Colorado.

If beating out other cities for the fitness title isn’t enough motivation, how about prizes? Participants are entered into drawings for prizes such as grocery gift cards as well as grand prizes such as hotel accommodations.

Residents can sign up to participate for this free challenge starting April 22 at Through the registration process, residents will be asked to create a MapMyFitness account, which participants will use to track their activity throughout May.
