AARP’s FitLot Initiative
To celebrate their 60th Anniversary, AARP wanted to give back to the communities they serve by making a gift that would reflect their values and improve the quality of life for the approximate 38 million AARP members living in the U.S.
FitLot’s mission resonated with AARP’s Office of Community Engagement. In 2019, AARP sponsored FitLot to plan, build, and program one outdoor fitness park in every state as well as the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, for a total of 53 parks over three years!
“FitLot could not be more proud to be teamed up with one of the nations most influential advocacy organizations to help more communities and individuals become stronger, healthier and more active for decades to come. We hope AARP’s commitment and leadership inspires other organizations to also invest in the strength and health infrastructure of their communities”
“These fitness parks are a tangible example of AARP’s commitment to local communities and healthy aging. The outdoor exercise equipment encourages people of all ages to get out of the house, meet others, and stay fit.”
Each outdoor fitness park will be located in an existing park and will feature FitLot™ exercise equipment. FitLot has developed a site selection criteria to help our community partners evaluate the most impactful locations to create outdoor fitness spaces in.
