The City of Riverside has joined the 2018 National Fitness Campaign and constructed a beautiful new Fitness Court® — only 15 minutes outside of Kansas City! 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 fall.

Located on the city’s main Community Center campus, visitors to Riverside can bike, jog or run to the Court before getting their simple seven-movement workout on! Thanks to the support of the City Mayor, Platte County Health Department, the YMCA and local businesses, we will provide a world-class exercise experience for adults of all ages and fitness levels.


This thriving city’s motto is Upstream from ordinary, and they’ve certainly set the bar high for other communities across the state to make fitness free and fun for all! Riverside offers plenty of recreation opportunities and amenities for the public, along with the Healthy Citizens Initiative — a creative investment in the continued wellness of residents.

The City of Riverside celebrated the grand opening of the Court with the local community at an Opening Day Launch Party on Saturday, October 20th. With a fun community fitness challenge, free giveaways, guided routines to heart-pumping music and more, NFC is thrilled to welcome the city to the 2018 National Fitness Campaign.

Missouri has joined the 2018 National Fitness Campaign! Just outside of historic St. Louis, the City of Maryland Heights is leading the state as the first to install The Fitness Court® and activate free fitness for all.

The outdoor bodyweight circuit training gym is now available for public use in Quiet Hollow Park, suitable for adults of all abilities, and at no cost to residents.

“It will allow individuals the chance to work out while being outdoors and when their schedule permits. We are very excited to have this new amenity in our community,” says Tracey Anderson, Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Maryland Heights.

The city is dedicated to keeping residents excited about health and wellness, so their new Fitness Court is a public resource added to city infrastructure for the health benefits of all residents. Friends, families and fit fans in the St. Louis area attended an Opening Day Launch Party to welcome the Court on Saturday, September 22nd in Quiet Hollow Park!
