Medinah Park District Receives $50,000 Grant to Upgrade Thorndale Park with Outdoor Fitness Court

The Medinah Park District is excited to announce, in conjunction with the National Fitness Campaign, a mid-year 2023 installation of an Outdoor Fitness Court at Thorndale Park. The Fitness Court offers an easy to learn, scientifically designed “7 minute full body movement system” for adults of all ages and fitness levels that will be FREE to the community. The outdoor infrastructure is supported by a digital toolkit to encourage people in communities to come outdoors and remain active and engaged. Grant funding totaling $50,000.00 was secured by the Park District through BlueCross and BlueShield of Illinois to help offset a large portion of the overall cost of the Fitness Court. The 38′ x 38′ outdoor pod will provide a myriad of exercise equipment functions that will entice people to come outdoors for daily movement and exercise. The National Fitness Campaign was launched in 1979 and has served millions of individuals who see the value of coming outdoors to walk, jog, or cycle to a nearby Fitness Court, which becomes an active local hub for healthy living. You can check out their online workout library or download an app that provides a seven-move full-body workout.
