Tewksbury is First in Massachusetts to Make Outdoor Fitness Free for All

The Tewksbury Fitness Court is NOW OPEN!


The Town of Tewksbury has partnered with National Fitness Campaign to install and activate a state-of-the-art outdoor gym facility for all ages in Livingston Park, one of the community’s most vibrant and active spaces. Thanks to the generous support of leadership and residents, this town is making fitness free — for everyone!

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.

The effort to bring free fitness to Tewksbury was led by the town manager’s office, who officially applied for participation in the Campaign in fall 2017. This incredible community is one of only 100 cities accepted into NFC’s 2018 grant program. Now, they’re the first to join the Campaign in all of Massachusetts!


An exciting launch event is scheduled for Saturday, June 22nd, where city leaders will cut the ribbon, and introduce residents to their new outdoor space — NFC is thrilled to welcome Tewksbury to the national campaign, and to share a system that can keep residents fit for life with seven simple movements.

See you on the #FitnessCourt!

Blazing a trail as leaders in the region, this town isn’t cutting corners on building the best outdoor gym out there! Residents can expect a one-of-a-kind, fully customized, navy blue Fitness Court — designed specifically for Beth Israel Lahey Health and the Burlington Recreation Department.

Major thanks are owed to Beth Israel Lahey Health — their generous support made this new Fitness Court a possibility for Burlington. From the earliest days of the project, the hospital was inspired by the town’s desire to promote healthy living in a free and engaging way.
