FitLot strengthens people and their communities by supporting the creation of public Outdoor Fitness Parks
AARP has teamed up with FitLot to celebrate their 60th Anniversary as an organization by donating one fully funded AARP Sponsored Outdoor Fitness Park to each state in the country, The District of Columbia, the U.S Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico over the next three years.
FitLot opened the first AARP Sponsored Outdoor Fitness Park in St. Petersburg, Florida in April 2019. Watch the video above to see how the City of St. Petersburg is activating their new FitLot Fitness Park.
FitLot is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization committed to helping communities find the resources they need to plan, build and program outdoor fitness parks. We believe that every individual can and should enjoy the health benefits of a more active lifestyle. Formed in 2013, FitLot’s vision is for every American to have access to a cost-free exercise space within walking distance of their homes.
A FitLot is an outdoor fitness park that makes the benefits of indoor exercise training free and accessible to the public. A FitLot fitness area consists of outdoor fitness stations that are brilliantly designed to use one’s own body weight as resistance making each piece of equipment age, gender and ability based.
