The Fitness Council is leading our community in life-long physical activity. We believe that it should be easy, safe, and fun to walk, bike, and be active in Jackson. We pursue this goal through three programing areas:
Promoting Active Living, where biking, walking, and being active are a part of our daily routine.
Connecting people to a variety of physical activity resources. Our Fitness Directory provides a great list of events and resources for getting active in Jackson, many of which are low- or no-cost. Whether you want to paddle a kayak, find a group to walk with, or explore yoga, we can point you in the right direction.
Creating an environment where it is safe, easy and fun to get out and be active. We support the community in building trails, adding bike lanes, adopting a Complete Streets policy, creating safe routes to school, and planning for recreational improvements.
