Health & Fitness


Let’s Get Fit! 

In order to take care of others, you must first take care of yourself! This is why the Escondido Jaycees are committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Fitness Chair, Beth Roti, is passionate about healthy lifestyle choices.

Fitness Challenges

We kicked off the year with a Fitness Challenge! Our February Fitness Challenge encouraged a healthy dose of competition while members worked on achieving their health and fitness goals.  We’re doing it again for May! Here’s how it’s going to work this time around: Set 5 daily goals for yourself, and award yourself 10 points for each of those goals you achieve each day. The person with the most points by the end of May will get a prize!

Join the Facebook group HERE for more information and to see how members are encouraging each other!

Here are examples from our February Fitness Challenge:

We are all winners at the end of the challenge since we are healthier just for having participated but Rachel Sturz was crowned winner of our February Fitness Challenge! She received a very nice Hydroflask water bottle as a prize. Rachel was very involved in the challenge. She shared many paleo-inspired recipes within the Challenge Facebook group and encouraged everyone with her healthy eating habits and suggestions.

May Fitness Month & Escondido Jaycees Flag Football – May 27

We will be playing a pick-up game of flag football on one of the football fields between the Little League fields and Bear Valley Parkway.

The game will start at 9am, so please show up early to pick teams. Bryan will be there around 7:45am to hold the field (they are first-come, first-serve) and to set up.

This event is FREE. RSVP on the Facebook event page HERE.

The Great Outdoors

We enjoy exploring the scenic parts of San Diego, which is why we try to get out for hikes every few months. We try to choose easy to moderate hikes that everyone can enjoy. People are welcome to bring their pups too!

In the past we’ve hiked Daley Ranch and Highland Valley trail. Our most recent hike was a 4 mile hike at Blue Sky Ecological Reserve up to Poway Lake on Saturday February 26!
