Imperial Beach, CA. — Feb. 11, 2019 — The City of Imperial Beach (IB) has cut the ribbon on their new beachfront Fitness Court® in Dunes Park, now the city will host a wellness event centered around this best-in-class outdoor gym.

 

 







On Saturday, February 23rd all residents, local businesses, and media outlets are invited to attend The Imperial Beach Fitness Court Festival from 12:00 to 2:00pm. Representatives from National Fitness Campaign (NFC) – makers of the Fitness Court – will be onsite during the event and attendees can expect to participate in express bootcamps led by NFC’s National Training Director, Jonathan Binnie.

 

This event organized around healthy living in Imperial Beach, will also include athletic wear giveaways and the city’s first ever Fitness Court Challenge –  an exciting event that tests competitors’ speed and endurance, all digitally scored and tracked using the Fitness Court mobile app.

 

Participants in the Fitness Court Challenge will include local alumni and trainees from the IRONMAN 70.3 Superfrog race, coming back to IB in September 2019. IRONMAN spokesperson Gina Thomas,  says the Court is a good resource for triathletes in training and the organization is glad to be an official sponsor of the new facility. “This is obviously a very passionate idea that came from the Mayor… they approached us about being one of the sponsors, and obviously not everyone is built to be an IRONMAN...but everyone is built to be physically fit,” said Thomas.

 

The Fitness Court is an outdoor bodyweight circuit training gym, featuring all-level workouts that can be completed in just 7 minutes a day. This state-of-the-art facility is the only one of its kind in the San Diego area, and has been available for free public use in Dunes Park since December 2018.

 

Athletic wear is encouraged for this event and all those interested in attending the Fitness Court Festival, should RSVP at facebook.com/events/326987711264450.
