Partnership with The Trust for Public Land and the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation brings fitness parks to communities in Chattanooga, Tennessee

City officials and community members were on hand to cut the ribbon of the Carver Recreation Center Fitness Zone in Chattanooga, Tennessee

We were proud to partner with the Trust for Public Land and the City of Chattanooga to provide high quality, outdoor fitness products in neighborhoods where residents don’t have the means to visit a fitness center.

GameTime, a leading manufacturer of commercial playground and outdoor fitness equipment, recently opened three new fitness parks in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The parks are designed to complement health and wellness programs at adjacent recreation centers and feature GTfit Advanced Series fitness products. The parks include elliptical machines, a chin-­up and push­-up station, leg and chest press stations and more, including accessible options for adults who use mobility devices.

The parks, located at Carver Recreation Center, East Lake Community Center and South Chattanooga Recreation Center, are the result of bringing together the right partners to accomplish the project.

“Public and private partnerships have long been the cornerstone of the Chattanooga community,” said Robert Barron, Senior Vice President of Sales for GameTime. “We were proud to partner with the Trust for Public Land and the City of Chattanooga to provide high quality, outdoor fitness products in neighborhoods where residents don’t have the means to visit a fitness center. With the help of the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation, we were able to design three parks that provide a well­-rounded fitness program for adults of all ages and abilities.”

Each of the fitness parks have been designated as a National Demonstration Site for Adult Outdoor Fitness by PlayCore. National Demonstration Sites are selected through a rigorous screening process that ensures they provide all four elements of a well­-rounded fitness program. Moreover, communities must agree to regularly monitor usage of the parks to maximize their effectiveness for every member of the community. The sites will be added to a national database of fitness parks at http://www.playcore.com/fitness.
