The City of Perris, California, has partnered with National Fitness Campaign to install and activate a state-of-the-art outdoor gym facility for all ages in Paragon Park, one of the community’s most active and well-loved spaces. With the support of city leaders, friends and Ambassadors, this city is making fitness free — for everyone!

The new system was made possible through the generosity of many groups, but especially thanks to the efforts of Habib Motlagh — the former City Engineer and philanthropic leader in the local community. Motlagh has worked for years to help design a city that is built for its people, and his support for the Fitness Court project in Perris is truly inspiring.

“I have been honored to work in the City of Perris for more than 30 years,” Motlagh said. “I’ve seen Perris grow from a small town to a thriving City. I am pleased to be able to help in a small way to improve the health and fitness of our residents. I appreciate the wonderful support of the City Council, administration and staff for working to make Perris a healthy community with healthy parents, grandparents and children.”

The Fitness Court is an outdoor bodyweight circuit training facility designed to transform this thriving public park into a community wellness hub. As part of the national Campaign ecosystem, the free Fitness Court App allows residents to track their training progress, learn new routines and compete in exciting fitness challenges.

City Councilwoman Tonya Burke called the Court another great project for residents to take advantage of. “I am so pleased that the City is able to bring this to Perris,” Burke said. “I am so much a supporter of healthy living. Through our Live Well program, we show interest in the entire person — from healthy eating to exercising, we are looking at the whole body and spirit. It feels good that we are in a position to address that whole person.”

Guests were able to see fitness demonstrations, receive free giveaways from local vendors, a chance to workout on the Fitness Court and a competitive head-to-head Fitness Court challenge.
