Mayor Lloyd Winnecke began combatting one of Evansville’s biggest issues, obesity, before he was sworn in as Mayor. Evansville was named one of the nation’s “fattest cities” in May of 2011 by a Gallup poll. Since those numbers were released, Mayor Winnecke has taken office.

One of the most important initiatives he has created is that of Energize Evansville. The strategy is to incorporate healthy activities throughout the city and help residents live more active lives. The Mayor has enlisted the help of over fifty local fitness experts, nutritionists, and other health consciences minds to help achieve the goals of Energize Evansville.

The major portion of the Energize Evansville initiative allows the public to get active in the city’s parks and other locations. Its purpose is to bring people together and raise awareness about fitness and the city at the same time. Fitness in the Park is being coordinated by the Mayor’s office and will include a new location every month.
