Renown Health and the National Fitness Campaign (NFC) recently announced a partnership to construct outdoor “Fitness Courts” in public spaces across the state.

“This partnership was formed to fight obesity, improve quality of life, and create equitable access to outdoor exercise programs for communities around the state … bringing community wellness programs and free digital workouts to thousands of people,” according to a Nov. 16 press release.

“Our mission is to make a genuine difference in the health and wellbeing of the people and communities we serve. We at Renown Health are honored to partner with local organizations in improving the health of Nevadans through fitness,” Renown Health President & CEO Dr. Tony Slonim said in a statement.

According to the release, NFC’s outdoor fitness gyms feature a series of seven-minute workouts with the benefits of digital coaching from the firm’s free Fitness Court app. There are also opportunities for free fitness classes through an ambassador program featuring local trainers.

According to the press release, the entities have $750,000 in grant funding available. Municipalities, schools and other organizations who own accessible public space in Nevada may apply. Grant recipients will receive a wellness toolkit, education and design resources to assist in planning, funding and launching their outdoor Fitness Court.

“The National Fitness Campaign is proud to welcome Renown Health as its state sponsor in Nevada,” Mitch Menaged, founder of the NFC, said in a statement. “This program will deliver tremendous resources to contribute to the important mission of fighting obesity and improving health outcomes as the network of Fitness Courts grows across the state. We look forward to working with Renown Health to make this campaign a great success.”
