BACKGROUND: At their Oct. 2, 2018 meeting, Palmdale City Council members unanimously approved plans to create the Fitness Court® presented by Antelope Valley Hospital at Pelona Vista Park in Palmdale.
The Fitness Court is a best-in-class outdoor bodyweight circuit training facility that includes more than 30 pieces of exercise equipment arranged in stations, which can be used by up to 28 people at the same time. The system features a series of full-body exercises that can be completed in just seven minutes. The 7 Movements in 7 Minutes is a simple yet powerful workout created for a range of athletic abilities that is shown to burn more calories per minute than most other forms of exercise.
The Fitness Court is made possible through funds from Antelope Valley Hospital, the presenting sponsor, as well as support from The Kaiser Foundation, High Desert Medical Group, the Warnack Foundation and an NFC Fitness Grant from official music sponsor Fit Radio.
