Temple Mayor’s Council on Physical Fitness

The Temple Mayor’s Council on Physical Fitness was created by Mayor William A. Jones III to develop a forum of community leaders and wellness enthusiasts whose goal is to create a healthier community. The Mayor’s Fitness Council is a community campaign that encourages citizens of all ages to maintain healthy lifestyles through regular exercise and proper nutrition. The Council works to increase community awareness of the health benefits of an active lifestyle, engage Temple residents in fitness opportunities and events, collaborate with local businesses and employers, and encourage community members to participate in statewide fitness campaigns. Meetings are held monthly on the fourth Wednesday at 12:00 p.m.

If you have a vested interest in helping the Temple Community commit to GetFit, please contact to learn about attending a meeting and becoming part of the team!
