First Free Outdoor Fitness Court Opens in Avon

Mayor Jensen and Dr. Starck of Avon Hospital join with community members and officials at the Fitness Court ribbon-cutting.

The area’s first free, outdoor fitness court is now open in Avon adjacent to the Avon Aquatic Center at 36265 Detroit Road.

The Fitness Court celebrated its grand opening with a launch party on June 15 that saw Mayor Bryan Jensen and team welcome one and all to this unique community resource.

The Fitness Court comes to Avon through a partnership between the City and the National Fitness Campaign (NFC), inventors of the Fitness Court® to install and activate a state-of-the-art outdoor gym facility for all ages at the Avon Aquatic Facility and Park.

The mission, according to the City, demonstrates Avon’s commitment to making the health and wellness of their citizens a priority. Now they are making fitness free — for everyone – through the Fitness Court!

7 stations in 7 minutes makes for a great burn on the Fitness Court.

The new Fitness Court® is an outdoor bodyweight circuit training facility designed to transform public spaces into community fitness hubs.

This system also includes a free Fitness Court App that residents can download and use to track their training progress, learn new routines, or compete in fitness challenges.

“Physical fitness is an important component in keeping all generations healthy,’ says Mayor Bryan Jensen. “Our Fitness Court is located in a city park alongside our Aquatic Facility. This will be an area where opportunities for health and wellness are all around you!”

The city of Avon is also teaming up with the Cleveland Clinic to connect residents with free activities and experiences that encourage a healthy lifestyle.

All were invited to attend an Opening Day Launch Party on Friday, June 15, that included a Ribbon Cutting, fun community fitness challenges with prizes and giveaways.

The Fitness Court is located at 36265 Detroit Road, Avon, Ohio 44011 – next to the Avon Aquatic Facility.

“NFC sees that the City of Avon prioritizes the health and well-being of its residents. We are very proud to name Avon the home of the first ever Fitness Court in Ohio,” said Mitch Menaged, Founder of National Fitness Campaign. “See you on the Court!”
