​​​​​Vinny Mifsud, owner of Strive 24 Fitness & Salon, is partnering with State and local Health Services, Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Arthur Nagel Community Clinic, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bandera county, American Legion Post 410, Sons of the American Legion Post 410 to promote wellness and fitness in the Bandera County. Vinny has a passion for good health and active lifestyle and he is anxious to share his passion with the community, and as such, he created the Blue Bike initiative.  24 bikes generously donated by local community, painting them blue from the spokes to the handlebars, and placing them around Bandera county sparked curiosity hoping to start the conversation about a healthier and active lifestyle. These bikes symbolize an inexpensive way to exercise, the color blue represents health, and the 24 bikes inspiring a daily goal of the number of minutes one should exercise.

​​​​Without regular physical exercise and eating more calories than we burn, we gain weight which leads to being overweight and potentially obesity. The extra pound takes a toll on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also affects our friends, families, caregivers and communities.
