The info below comes from a press release.
On Friday, May 13, the City of Smyrna will unveil its newest addition at Jonquil Park — a sleek and modern outdoor Fitness Court® with a supporting mobile app.
This project is a featured part of a 2022 initiative launched by National Fitness Campaign (NFC), a nationwide consulting organization that partners with cities and schools to plan, build, and fund healthy infrastructure.
The new Fitness Court®, located at Jonquil Park at 3000 Park Road, is an open-air wellness center that allows users to leverage their own body weight to get a complete workout.
Created with adults of all ages in mind, the Fitness Court is adaptable for all fitness levels.
New users can also download the free Fitness Court App – a coach-in-your-pocket style platform – that transforms the outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness ecosystem. The app is available for iOS and Android.
National Fitness Campaign developed the trademarked seven-station system in 2012, hoping to inspire municipalities to transform public spaces into community fitness hubs. There are currently 100 active Fitness Court locations across the country.
The public is invited to attend an Opening Day event on Friday, May 13 at noon. You can try out the Fitness Court and learn about upcoming community wellness events and programming.
“The Fitness Court is the latest addition to Smyrna’s expansive parks and trails system, and will make fitness fun and accessible to all residents,” said Mayor Derek Norton. “The project’s goal is to promote healthy living while providing opportunities for residents to connect with their neighbors.”
