ROCHESTER, NY (WHEC) – A free fitness court is opening up in Rochester.
The state-of-the-art facility is the first of its kind in New York state. Located in Cobb’s Hill Park, the outdoor fitness court has 30 stations that can be customized for different athletic abilities.
It’s a partnership between MVP Health Care, the City of Rochester, and National Fitness Campaign.
MVP Health Care explained the court has an outdoor circuit training system that includes 30 pieces of equipment, allowing users of all skill levels to use their body weight at different angles and resistance levels to increase mobility and muscular strength.
The court’s free Fitness Court App can guide users through the different exercises and act as a personal trainer for you to use at your own pace and level of ability. It focuses on seven movements: core, squat, push, lunge, pull, agility, and bend.
On Tuesday, there will be a ribbon cutting and free classes to celebrate the opening of the court.
Throughout the year, Fitness Ambassadors will hold free classes. Local exercise enthusiasts can sign up to become an ambassador to lead classes and giving back to the community.

MVP Health Care is also partnering up with News10NBC for the Health and Wellness Expo on Oct. 5 at RIT’s Gordon Field House.
