Leadership Pensacola will partner with the City of Pensacola and the National Fitness Campaign to install three fitness courts throughout the area as part of the group’s 2018 class project, “LeaP into Fitness.”
NFC’s fitness courts offer a “free, outdoor, bodyweight fitness program designed for all levels.” The courts will be installed at Bayview Park, Legion Field, and the Vince J. Whibbs Sr. Community Maritime Park. onstruction of the courts will be made possible through sponsorships and donations.
Leadership Pensacola, a program of the Pensacola Chamber Foundation, was established in 1982 with the goal of ensuring the community’s pool of talented leaders would be continually renewed. Each year’s class chooses a community-oriented project to complete.
The National Fitness Campaign has partnered with more than 4,000 cities to build fitness courts, officials said. The 34.5’x32’ courts are a seven-station, bodyweight fitness circuit and health training system. Each fitness court features 30 individual pieces of equipment, a shock-resistant sports flooring, and is comprised of exercise stations that allow for up to 28 individuals to use the court at the same time. The courts offer hundreds of routines intended to support fitness training for a variety of age groups and intensity levels.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned to unveil the first of the three courts at the Community Maritime Park on April 27.
