Mayor's Health & Fitness Challenge
Participant weights and names will be kept strictly confidential.
The Hesperia Mayor’s Health and Fitness Challenge is a fun and friendly competition designed to encourage citizens to lose weight, while establishing healthy eating and fitness habits. The program will inspire your competitive nature and motivate you to engage in some type of physical activity each week. The Mayor would like to promote awareness of the value of physical activity in the pursuit of happier, healthier, more productive lives and challenges you to keep pace with him by moving to your own healthy beat. No matter your overall conditioning, you are encouraged to perform healthy activities and move for a fitter and healthier you. Under the umbrella of Healthy Hesperia, the program will include monthly weigh-ins, optional classes on nutrition and healthy weight loss, and opportunities to participate in “Fitness with the Mayor.”

Participants certify they are physically able to undertake this fitness and weight loss effort. Individual weight loss results vary and participation in the Challenge does not guarantee weight loss. Factors such as diet and genetic makeup, overall health, or physiological differences may influence weight loss. Please consult with your physician before beginning any new nutrition or exercise program.
Weigh-ins will be conducted at Hesperia City Hall. Participants must weigh in on September 22, and again in October and November, which is the final time just prior to the winners being announced. A schedule will be provided, and no alternate weigh-in times or methods will be allowed. Verify your ability to meet the scheduled weigh-ins prior to registration. Failure to meet this minimum requirement will disqualify you from the challenge.
Participants cannot have had weight loss surgery since March 1, 2015. No participant shall use any artificial or inappropriate means of weight loss or alteration in body composition in order to win the Challenge including but not limited to liposuction, weight loss surgery or other similar procedures.
Participants are encouraged to lose weight in a healthy and fair manner. Please, no diet pills, laxatives, colonics, or diuretics unless prescribed for a medical condition.
Winners will be determined based on percentage of weight lost from starting body weight.
- Example Calculation:
- 1. Beginning weight— ending weight = pounds lost
- 2. (pounds lost/beginning weight) X 100 = percentage weight lost
