“Healthy communities are thriving communities and it’s very exciting to see Palmdale becoming part of this great movement that is growing nationally,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “A special thanks to our partners Antelope Valley Hospital and Kaiser Permanente. It’s these kinds of partnerships that strengthen our community and give our residents more opportunities for engagement and healthy fun.”

The City of Palmdale, located in the beautiful Antelope Valley, has joined the National Fitness Campaign and constructed a new outdoor Fitness Court! This healthy community has decided to provide no-cost bodyweight circuit training workouts for adults of all fitness levels — and launch their local wellness campaign for the spring.

“This partnership between the City of Palmdale and Antelope Valley Hospital allows us to extend our message of healthier living into the community where families are already gathering,” said Antelope Valley Hospital CEO Edward Mirzabegian. “As a local healthcare leader, we are not only focused on taking care of people when they’re sick or injured, we want to help local residents live healthier. The Fitness Court is one more way we’re accomplishing that goal.”

Thanks to the support of local healthcare sponsors and engaged residents, users of all abilities will have access to a free, world-class workout.

“As a nonprofit integrated healthcare system, we have a social mission to improve the health of the communities we serve and we can only do that in partnership with others,” said Kaiser Permanente Administrator for the Antelope Valley, Maybelle Liquigan. “Good health extends beyond the four walls of Kaiser Permanente. Health happens in parks, in community, in the places we live, learn, work, play, and pray. We were thrilled to provide the City of Palmdale with a $20,000 grant to support the construction of this new place for health.”

Residents celebrated the grand opening of the Court this June 21 with some great music, a fun community fitness challenge, free giveaways, and age 14+ express classes — this Fitness Court opened in style.
