You are most likely one of two kinds of people; you are either 1) already physically active and enjoy participating in active-focused events, or you’re 2) not very physically active and just need some motivation and opportunities to get out, move your body and have fun.
Either way, you need a Fit Pass 2.0! Designed by the City of San Antonio’s Parks and Recreation Department, and supported by the Mayor’s Fitness Council, Fit Pass 2.0 is billed as a kind of citywide interactive fitness scavenger hunt.
It’s also a passport to greater health through participation in a variety of fun, mostly free activities happening throughout the San Antonio community. The Fit Pass 2.0 “season” began June 14 and continues through Sept. 20.
To participate, you first need to get your Fit Pass 2.0 activity passport. It actually looks exactly like a passport, and that’s by design. The activity passport is full of wellness activities and challenges that you complete to get your passport stamped by an official Fit Pass 2.0 representative. Each stamp earns points. Earn 50 or more points, and you’ll receive a Fit Pass 2.0 prize pack and be entered into the Fit Pass 2.0 grand prize drawing at the end of the program. Prizes can include bicycles, fitness equipment and gift cards to health and wellness retailers.
Activities in the passport include things like attending a Fitness in the Park class, participating in the San Antonio Sports Fit Family Challenge (www. fitfamilychallenge.com), volunteering at the SA Food Bank Spurs Community Garden, joining a San Antonio Roadrunners monthly fun run, and participating in a variety of fun runs and walks scheduled through Sept. 20.
