City of Kingston Launches The Fitness Court


KINGSTON – On May 9th, 2024 the City of Kingston will unveil an outdoor Fitness Court at Kingston City Park, improving and enhancing the quality of life for Tennessee residents. This capital project is a featured part of the 2024 initiative launched by National Fitness Campaign (NFC), a nationwide wellness consulting firm that partners with municipalities and schools to plan, build and fund Healthy Communities. NFC’s award- winning initiative is now planning its 500th Healthy Community in America and is poised to deliver vital outdoor wellness programs helping to fight the obesity epidemic across the country.

The year, the City of Kingston and dozens of other select recipients from around the country were awarded a $30,000 grant from NFC to help support the program. In addition to grant funding, local funding and sponsorship from Roane Medical contributed to make the project possible in Kingston.

The new Fitness Court at Kingston City Park is the world’s best outdoor gym and allows users to leverage their own body weight to get a complete workout using severn stations. Created for adults aged 14 and older, the Fitness Court is adaptable for all fitness levels. Users can also download the free Fitness Court App – a coach-in-you-pocket style platform – that transforms the worlds best outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness experience. The Fitness Court App is available for iOS and Android.

“We are excited to have the City of Kingston join us in the journey to health and wellness as we make a positive impact building Healthy Infrastructure across America,” said Mitch Menaged, Founder of National Fitness Campaign. “The addition of the Fitness Court along with ongoing engagement in healthy lifestyles demonstrates a tremendous commitment to the community.”

Residents are invited to attend an Opening Day Launch Event on May 9th at 5pm to try the Fitness Court and learn about upcoming community wellness event and programming.
