High 5ive 4Fitness

A fun-filled day of fitness for the entire family.


HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS is a fun day of health and wellness for the entire family. Featuring our famous BATTLE OF THE GYMS (BOTG), where Orange County’s finest fitness facilities go head to head in epic combat as they compete for their favorite schools, we also have a variety of SPORTS CHALLENGES that will challenge participants of all ages, from kindergarteners through adults. Let your school spirit shine by cheering for your favorite teacher teams at our BATTLE OF THE SCHOOLS and in between all the physical activity, you can browse our Wellness Fair, enter our raffle drawing for some fabulous prizes and be entertained by live performances featuring youth groups from our local communities! There truly is something for everyone and the best part about it? It’s absolutely FREE!

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND and preceding the original BOTG will be a “Members Only” division, which will allow dedicated club members of each participating gym the opportunity to race against their peers, while still being challenged and pushed to their limits. Click on the BATTLE OF THE GYMS tab for rules and to register your team(S)!

As mentioned above, returning again for its 3rd year will be our BATTLE OF THE SCHOOLS. Four-person adult teams will represent their school in a competition specifically designed to showcase the many talents of their teachers, administrators and staff.

We also have an EXCITING NEW TWIST THIS YEAR to our Battle of the Gyms! Each BOTG team gets to “adopt” a school that they will be competing for! We will award grants towards their health, PE or designated athletic program in the following amounts, so it will definitely be a WIN/WIN!
