BULLHEAD CITY, AZ., January 10, 2023 – Friday January 20, 2023, the City of Bullhead City will unveil its newest quality of life addition at Rotary Park, a sleek and modern outdoor Fitness Court® with a supporting mobile app. This capital project is a featured part of a 2022 initiative launched by National Fitness Campaign (NFC), a nationwide consulting organization that partners with cities and schools to plan, build and fund healthy infrastructure.

Last year, the City of Bullhead City was awarded a $30,000 grant from NFC to help support the program. In addition to grant funding, a City contribution and local sponsorships from BHHS Legacy Foundation ($100,000) and DOT Foods ($10,000) respectively, were contributed to make the project possible in Bullhead City.

“The City envisions this being a positive addition to improving community healthcare and outdoor recreation facilities. Bullhead City is committed to investing in our community and such developments go a long way in advancing health standards for the whole community”, said Edigar Kajirwa, Assistant to the City Manager.

The new Fitness Court® at Rotary Park with its beautiful backdrop including the Colorado River is an open-air wellness center that allows users to leverage their own body weight to get a complete workout. Created with adults of all ages in mind, the Fitness Court is adaptable for all fitness levels. New users can also download the free Fitness Court App — a coach-in-your-pocket style platform — that transforms the outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness ecosystem. The Fitness Court App, entitled “Fitness Court”, is available for iOS and Android.

National Fitness Campaign developed the trademarked seven-station system in 2012 hoping to inspire municipalities to transform public spaces into community fitness hubs. There are currently 150+ active Fitness Court® locations across the country, and the Campaign surpassed a total of 250 cities and schools by the end of 2022.

“I think this will be a hugely popular amenity for this park”, said Dave Heath, Superintendent of Parks.

Residents are invited to attend an Opening Day Launch Event on January 20, 2023, at 10:00 am to try the Fitness Court® and learn about upcoming community wellness events and programming.
