Foster City will unveil its brand new Fitness Court to the community on Saturday, April 27th, joining San Francisco and Sacramento as partners in the National Fitness Campaign.

Located in Shorebird Park, this outdoor gym will be surrounded by 3.5 acres of bay-front green space. The park also features convenient parking, picnic facilities and direct access to the area’s most popular jogging and biking route – The Bay Trail.

San Francisco’s Marina Green Fitness Court was the first to be installed along the iconic 365 mile trail – thanks to Foster City, users can now enjoy strength, calisthenics and circuit training at not one, but TWO trail locations! As always, this one-of-a-kind gym is completely free to the public, and available to during standard park hours.

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.”
