The Pinecrest Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with local businesses and organizations to build a holistic health movement called FitCrest.  FitCrest encourages everyone to focus on actions that lead to a healthier life and community by creating opportunities in everyday situations for people to focus on their minds, body, and soul.  FitCrest fosters personal growth and development by encouraging individuals to make small choices focused on one or more of the main pillars of FitCrest.  Simple choices such as reading a book, having a healthy meal, enjoying a quiet park, going to the gym, taking a walk, or even turning off your cell phone all help lead an individual to a healthier life and may help to make additional healthy choices more effortless in the future. 

It takes everyone to build a healthy community.  That is why we partner with local businesses and organizations throughout Pinecrest.  Have you seen the big orange #FitCrest sticker in the window of your favorite business?  If you have, it means the company offers a good or service to help you along your FitCrest journey.  Ask them what they provide; it may surprise you.  New FitCrest business partners are added regularly, check back often for a complete list of FitCrest partners.   

In addition to partnering with local businesses and organizations, the Parks and Recreation Department hosts several FitCrest activities throughout the year.  These activities include the FitCrest 5K held the first Saturday in January, the annual Zombie Run, a monthly FitCrest Friday activity, and various FitCrest challenges. 

Don’t forget to share your progress on social media by using the hashtag #FitCrest.  Your success could be just the thing someone needs to begin their FitCrest journey.
