On September 9, 2022, Maine’s first new Fitness Court® for ages 14 and over and all fitness abilities opened in partnership between Community Health Options, the City of Lewiston, and National Fitness Campaign (NFC).
A Fitness Court challenge and demos led by trained local ambassadors followed a ribbon-cutting ceremony. NFC has designed the Fitness Court to be the world’s best outdoor gym that enables people to use their own body weight to undertake a complete workout using seven exercise stations—in as little as seven minutes. Partners for the local Fitness Court are committed to expand free access to high-quality workouts and create equitable exercise access.
"This outdoor Fitness Court will complement Simard-Payne Park nicely and is an exciting addition to our riverwalk and downtown. I appreciate Community Health Options and National Fitness Campaign for making this possible and for their commitment to Lewiston," said Mayor Carl L. Sheline.
