The city of Grand Prairie and community partners present Get Fit Grand Prairie – a citywide wellness initiative connecting residents to local resources for improving health through physical fitness and healthy food options.
The Get Fit GP program, which began in January 2014, presents tools, tips and local resources through the Get Fit GP website (www.gptx.org/GetFitGP) to help residents get up, get out and get fit. The website highlights certain topics each month, encouraging residents to participate in activities hosted by the city and its partners.
