Welcome to The National Fitness Campaign
A comprehensive program to ignite healthy living in your community
Partnership in the Campaign includes full support in marketing, promoting and activating the Fitness Courts® in your community. National and regional feature media, press releases, custom storytelling, social media support and opening day celebration kits — it’s all included!
Your First Year
Opening your first Fitness Court® is just the beginning.

For Campaign partners, Fitness Season includes challenges, classes and clinics that celebrate and build a healthy outdoor culture.
