[August 16, 2018]  The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Community Health Collaborative and the City of Lincoln has partnered with National Fitness Campaign (NFC), inventors of the Fitness Court®, to install and activate a state-of-the-art outdoor gym facility for adults of all fitness levels.

Residents are invited to attend an Opening Day Ribbon Cut and Launch Party on Thursday, August 16th at 9:00 a.m. The Fitness Court is located at the former site of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, 235 Eighth Street.

After the ribbon cut, stay for a fun Fitness Challenge, prizes and giveaways, and an opportunity to be featured in local and national media.

Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital has made the health and wellness of community residents a priority, and now they are making fitness free — for everyone! Funded by the ALMH Foundation and in partnership with the City of Lincoln, the new Fitness Court ® is an outdoor bodyweight circuit training facility designed to transform public spaces into community fitness hubs.

This system also includes a free Fitness Court App that residents can use to track their training progress, learn new routines, or compete in fitness challenges.

“As we continue our work to improve the health of the people and communities we serve, we look forward to the opportunities for free activity that the Fitness Court will bring to the residents of Lincoln and Logan County,” said Dolan Dalpoas, Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital president and CEO. “We are thankful for our partnership with the city of Lincoln and their commitment to improving the health of our community.”

ALMH and the City of Lincoln have partnered with over 40 local trainers and fitness court ambassadors to connect the local community with free activities and experiences that encourage a healthy lifestyle.

“We see great value in providing free access to fitness and outdoor recreation nationwide,” said Mitch Menaged, Founder of National Fitness Campaign. “NFC is thrilled to partner with the ALMH Community Health Collaborative, incredible sponsors who choose to consistently invest in the cities they serve. See you on the Court!”
