The campaign is support by some of the largest healthcare companies in America and is planning its 500th healthy community this year.
In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of bringing the world's best outdoor gym and community wellness programming to your community or school.
One of the most significant benefits is that the Fitness Court provides access to fitness equipment for people who may not be able to afford a gym membership or access to fitness equipment otherwise. Outdoor gyms are also a great way to encourage people to exercise outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while they work out. Research has shown that exercising outdoors can improve mental health and reduce stress levels, making it a great option for those looking to improve both their physical and mental well-being.
Another benefit of free outdoor gyms is that they offer a variety of equipment that can target different muscle groups. This variety allows individuals to customize their workout and focus on specific areas they want to improve. Outdoor gyms also provide a great opportunity for socializing and meeting new people. Working out with others can be motivating and help individuals stay on track with their fitness goals.
So, what makes NFC different? NFC offers a turnkey solution that includes everything you need to get started, from design and installation to ongoing maintenance and support. NFC's Fitness Court is a modular, customizable outdoor gym that can be installed in any outdoor space, including parks, schools, and community centers. The Fitness Court includes a range of fitness equipment that targets seven different movements: push, pull, squat, lunge, bend, twist, and agility. Each Fitness Court is a kinetic art piece, showcasing the value and inspiration born from connecting the power of the arts with the joy of wellness.
NFC also offers a free-to-download mobile app that provides guided workouts, virtual coaching, and fitness challenges. The app is free to download and can be used by anyone, regardless of whether they have access to an NFC Fitness Court or not. This app provides a great opportunity for individuals to track their progress with the health kit integration as they work toward their fitness goals. Individuals can track calories burned, time spent on a Fitness Court, step count and more as they get in a full body workout on the Fitness Court.
