The City of Big Rapids, Michigan is making world-class fitness free with a brand new Fitness Court®!

Carefully selected as one of hundreds of cities nationwide, Big Rapids’ city leaders commitment to wellness and fitness for all was a major reason the National Fitness Campaign selected them to build a community health program around cutting-edge outdoor infrastructure. The new Fitness Court in Triangle Park will be a high quality exercise experience available to adults of all abilities — and completely free of cost!

The Fitness Court is designed to transform this thriving public park into a community wellness hub. A free Fitness Court App allows residents to attend classes, track their training progress, learn simple seven-movement routines and compete in exciting fitness challenges!

Triangle Park, located behind the Spectrum Health Hospital and near River Street Soccer Fields, is the city’s newest premier destination for free fitness. Residents can walk, bike or skate from the Riverwalk, which connects all the city parks along the Muskegon River.  Its location is convenient for those that play and watch the busy soccer games across the street — what better way to enjoy time between games then get a free workout!

To give residents a jump-start on their summer workouts, a Fitness Court Community Block Party & Health Fair was held in June. Attendees enjoyed free express classes, one-on-one Ambassador training opportunities, and giveaways from local vendors!

THANK YOU BIG RAPIDS FOR PUTTING FREE FITNESS ON THE MAP!
