Providence St. Jude Medical Center has invested in installing outdoor fitness equipment in 16 parks in 4 cities in low-income neighborhoods where residents may not be able to afford a gym.
Starting on July 5, 2022 - November 30, 2022, the Fitness in the Parks project will specifically focus on activating the use of this fitness equipment by low-income seniors throughout parks in the cities of Buena Park, Fullerton, Placentia, and La Habra.
Certified Fitness Instructors will be available to instruct participants on how to use the fitness equipment at the parks and help seniors feel comfortable in utilizing the equipment safely. Participants will also get an opportunity to identify wellness goals they wish to reach. Certified Fitness Instructors will work with participants to help them reach these goals. Below you will find the schedule for the Fitness in the Parks opportunities:
