Lansing prioritizes community health and wellness with the addition of a Priority Health Fitness Court
This story appeared in a release from Priority Health.
The City of Lansing, Priority Health and the National Fitness Campaign (NFC) are pleased to announce the launch of an outdoor Priority Health Fitness Court® at 4900 Aurelius Rd., (Maguire Park) in Lansing. The Fitness Court will officially be unveiled at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, October 18 at 3 p.m. This launch is a result of the partnership between Priority Health and NFC to expand free access to high quality workouts and create equitable access to exercise for communities around the state.
The new Fitness Court® at Maguire Park is an open-air wellness center that allows users to leverage their own body weight to get a complete workout. Created with adults of all ages in mind, the Fitness Court is adaptable for all fitness levels. New users can also download the free Fitness Court App — a coach-in-your-pocket style platform — that transforms the outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness ecosystem. The Fitness Court App is available for iOS and Android.
Maguire Park is one of the outdoor courts in a series of 15-20 Priority Health Fitness Courts that will be constructed in easily accessible public spaces through 2022. NFC’s award-winning initiative is now supporting more than 150 cities across America, including cities in Michigan such as Madison Heights, Highland Park, Marysville, Big Rapids and Saginaw. The project at Maguire Park would not be possible without the generosity of sponsors Joseph & Jeanna Maguire, Tri-Star Trust, McLaren, LorAnn, and the City of Lansing.
National Fitness Campaign developed the trademarked seven-station system in 2012 hoping to inspire municipalities to transform public spaces into community fitness hubs. There are currently 150 active Fitness Court locations across the country, and the Campaign will reach a total of 250 cities and schools by the end of 2021.
