NFC is thrilled to welcome Oklahoma City, OK as the latest participant in the 2018 National Fitness Campaign. In this multi-site model city, community leaders and local trainers have decided to make world-class fitness free, and announced the launch of five outdoor Fitness Courts, the first of which will open at the Boathouse District.

Director of Parks and Recreation, Doug Kupper, joins a network of partners, funding sponsors, and fitness fanatics nationwide to celebrate the effort to promote healthy living for residents.

This beautiful city, home of the OKC Thunder and over 90 miles of trails, has spearheaded an initiative to bring affordable exercise amenities to those looking for a best-in-class full-body workout.

An exciting Fitness Court Festival planned for next Saturday, April 6th will offer a free 45-minute bootcamp and giveaways from local vendors and media! This celebration will jump start the local fitness season, provide residents a chance to enjoy their new outdoor gym, and demonstrate how to stay fit with seven simple movements.

The Boathouse District — where residents and visitors focus on fun, fitness and encouraging people to take on new challenges — is the perfect location to check out the City’s new upgrades to healthy community infrastructure. In addition, residents can find the world’s best outdoor gym in four more locations across the City — in Woodson Park, Stars & Stripes Park, Wiley Post Park and Douglass Park.


National Fitness Campaign and our partners in Oklahoma City, the Boathouse District and the OKC metro area invite residents to take advantage of the five new Fitness Court locations on Saturday, April 6th. For access to guided workouts and to get involved with exclusive training events, residents are invited to download the free Fitness Court App on iOS or Android.

We’ll see you on the Fitness Court!

Along their historic Main Street, the City of Okmulgee will soon showcase the first ever Fitness Court® in the state of Oklahoma! Situated only 40 minutes south of Tulsa, this great city offers small town charm with the excitement of life in a big city.

In partnership with Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology, the city has joined forces with National Fitness Campaign to bring a world-class outdoor gym to a nationally acclaimed, active location — and dressed it in the iconic OSU orange!

Located in the heart of the downtown corridor, visitors of the Okmulgee Fitness Court® will be able to pair a full body 7-minute workout with a scenic jog or bike ride along the pedestrian-friendly main street.

Fitness is a priority in Okmulgee, and the project came to life thanks to the hard work of a dedicated team: city staff, community sponsors, friends and neighbors! This group of champions was led by Okmulgee Public Works, City Manager Roger Ballenger, CP Kelco and Walmart Okmulgee — all working to make the healthy choice an easy choice in their city.
