As part of an effort to make world-class fitness free and accessible in beautiful public spaces, the City of Lakewood has partnered with National Fitness Campaign (NFC) to bring the Fitness Court® to Addenbrooke Park, 600 S. Kipling Parkway.

Invented by San Francisco-based NFC, the Fitness Court is an outdoor bodyweight circuit training gym that supports all-level workouts that can be completed in as little as seven minutes a day. The new Fitness Court is completely free to use, designed for all fitness abilities and suitable for ages 14 and over. With the Fitness Court app, available for iOS or Android, users can take classes, learn workout routines and get fit — all in their own local park!

The City of Lakewood invites the community to test out the new Fitness Court during a free, fun-filled launch event on Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. Enter the park via Garrison Street south of Alameda Avenue to access the closest parking area and bicycle rack. Attendees can learn how to use the Court through demonstrations or try a 20-minute PULSE class led by local Fitness Court Ambassadors. Classes will be offered at 5:15 and 6:15 p.m., and spots can be reserved on the app, which can be downloaded here: nfchq.com/app. Music, giveaways and healthy snacks will be provided. 

Lakewood Recreation will be offering ongoing classes for adults, families and older adults. The Fitness Court app can be used to register for these programs and to access free app-guided workouts and equipment orientation. Learn more at Lakewood.org/OutdoorFitness or by calling 303-987-5423.

Fitness Court sponsorship opportunities are available through Lakewood Resource Development. Call 303-987-7871 for details.
