Welcome to the 11th Annual Fitness Challenge presented by the City of Hillsboro. 

The 2020 Fitness Challenge will consist of two eight-week programs, called Waves. In the past, we found that most participants tend to drop out of the program around week eight. By splitting the challenge into two Waves, we'll help you keep your eye on the prize eight weeks at a time.


The 2020 Fitness Challenge will run January 11 through May 2, 2020.
