Guest blogger – City of Waynesville

The City of Waynesville held a Grand Opening for its newest addition to the Roubidoux Park, the National Fitness Campaign Fitness Court! The Fitness Court is located in the center of Roubidioux Park, 105 North Street, in the heart of Waynesville, Missouri.

The Fitness Court brings world class outdoor fitness free to cities across America. Featuring 7 functional training zones, thousands of bodyweight exercises and digital programming for adults of all ages and abilities. The Fitness Court is redefining outdoor fitness in communities across the nation.

Waynesville was fortunate enough to be the recipient of 1 of the municipality grants from the National Fitness Campaign. Waynesville is now 1 of only 300 municipal fitness courts across the United States! In addition to the fitness opportunities, the beautiful and historic mural on the fitness court is a “must-do” photo spot for Route 66 travelers and other visitors to our area. For more information about the National Fitness Campaign and to access workouts for every fitness level, challenges and training tools we encourage everyone to download the free Fitness Court® App.
