Free fitness has arrived in the beautiful Florida Keys! On Stock Island in Monroe County — part of the iconic Key West chain of islands — community leaders have made world-class outdoor fitness free for residents and vacationers with a brand new Fitness Court.

Centrally located Bernstein Park recently underwent a seven million dollar renovation in efforts to create modern, safe and beautiful outdoor infrastructure for the county. According to Monroe County Commissioner Danny Kolhage, "Bernstein Park will become one of the finest recreational facilities in the Lower Keys, and a wonderful, safe place for kids to play."


The park is home to all new multipurpose fields for baseball, softball, soccer and rugby; a playground, basketball court, walking trail and new field lighting. With the addition of a new state-of-the-art digital Fitness Court, fitness enthusiasts will have a place to soak up the sun and get their sweat on — for free!

Residents can easily access free classes or a coach in their pocket by downloading the free Fitness Court App. Users can compete with friends using the Challenge feature, or get motivated by the app’s self-guided circuit training workouts!

Monroe County… get out there and take advantage of your new world-class #FitnessCourt!
