Colorado Parks & Recreation Association Announces Ten $25,000 Grants to Improve the Quality of Life Across Colorado
 The Colorado Recreation and Park Association (CPRA) recently announced that ten $25,000 grants are now available to CPRA member organizations in 2020 to support the expansion
of the National Fitness Campaign (NFC) to more Colorado communities.
NFC’s highly acclaimed digital Fitness Court® supports a comprehensive fitness and wellness ecosystem by providing a publicly accessible, full-body workout circuit in community parks, open spaces, or trail systems. This award- winning initiative is already supporting public health and fitness-based recreation in more than one hundred and fifty cities across
America including already-in-place Fitness Courts® in Loveland, Lakewood, Avon, and Castle Pines, CO. The digital Fitness Court® delivers an outdoor wellness infrastructure to help the public stay active across the state of Colorado at a time when indoor gyms and fitness opportunities are constrained by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Fitness Court® combines 50 different exercise components on a 38’ x 38’ sports court that facilitates hundreds of different body-weight movements that can be executed in a series of seven-minute workouts. The public enjoys the benefits of digital coaching on the free Fitness Court® App, which delivers fresh content to keep fitness training fun for adults of all ages and fitness levels.

NFC trains and certifies local ambassadors as part of the campaign, so local experts can help build engagement and improve ease of effective use.
This state-wide grant program includes exclusive funding opportunities for CPRA members to join and launch the NFC’s Fitness Court® and leverage continuing education regarding the implementation of healthy infrastructure and the principles of pedestrian-oriented planning. The NFC offers fitness classes and programs designed to build a culture of community wellness, while also providing
a comprehensive suite of tools intended to help CPRA members secure additional funding partnerships. Grant funding represents an important share of the financial resources required to install a Fitness Court, with cities and local sponsors funding the remaining costs to build NFC partnerships across the state.
