AV Hospital and City of Palmdale Partner to Bring Fitness Court to Pelona Vista Park

(LANCASTER, Calif. – Oct. 4, 2018) — Regular exercise is a key component for optimum physical and mental health. Antelope Valley Hospital (AVH) and the City of Palmdale have joined forces to increase free access to exercise equipment for Antelope Valley residents.

At their Oct. 2 meeting, Palmdale City Council members unanimously approved plans to create the National 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 system designed for adults of all ages and abilities. It will feature over 30 pieces of exercise equipment arranged in stations that allow for up to 28 people to use the court 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.
