The City of Newport is continuing to prove their passion for community, growth, and providing “Quality of Life” for all residents. The ReNewport organization conducted thousands of resident interviews, and used the information they gathered to establish a master plan for the city’s parks and recreation. What is their end goal? To improve their community quality of life by 2025!
On the newly-installed Fitness Court, residents of Newport can take one step closer towards supporting their own health and wellness, in a new and creative way. 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.
Following close behind Mount Washington, Newport leaders are thrilled to make their community the next in the state of Kentucky to launch a Fitness Court program and to provide access to free fitness… to everyone! This project came to life, in large part, thanks to the generous sponsorship of St. Elizabeth Healthcare, who quickly jumped on the opportunity to further promote health and wellness by donating $60,000 to the project. Now residents will be able to get a full outdoor workout in beautiful Buena Vista Park!
An exciting launch party is scheduled for Saturday, September 7 at 11:00AM. Participants can expect free express classes, one-on-one Ambassador training opportunities, and awesome giveaways! This celebration will provide residents a chance to enjoy their new outdoor space, and demonstrate how to stay fit with seven simple movements.
