Corpus Christi, Texas — Obesity is a problem affecting millions of Americans, but it’s especially worrisome here in South Texas.
Currently, Corpus Christi’s obesity rate is about 33%. This means that one in three people living in the city is considered obese.
Since Men’s Health Magazine named Corpus Christi “the fattest city in America” in 2015, city officials have been developing our program to encourage Corpus Christi residents to make healthier choices. It was.
In 2020, city manager Peter Zanoni created “Safe Fun Fit at the Bay Front.” This is a program designed for people to ride, walk, jog and run along the Shoreline Boulevard.
And this year, Mayor Paulette Guajardo started running 5k times a month in the city.
Getting the Corpus Christi inhabitants out of the house is the latest incentive.
Over time, we will know if the initiative will take hold.
