Healthy City Workers


As part of the City of Atlanta’s Healthier You Wellness Initiative, 500 city employees are taking part in a “Shred” weight-loss challenge. Since March, they—and 600 other employees who participate in the city’s weekly workout classes, which include line dancing, tai chi, and Zumba—have lost more than 7,500 pounds. Taking this fitness business seriously, the city also built or refurbished seven fitness centers and is one of the leading corporate Weight Watchers groups in metro Atlanta.
