New fitness court at Civitan Park

Looking to get some exercise outdoors? Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center and the Kernersville Parks and Recreation Department have teamed up to offer a chance to do that. There’s a brand-new fitness court near the water tower at Civitan Park. It has several workout stations and is completely free to use. Leaders of Novant Health Kernersville said the design is built for every fitness level ranging from beginners all the way to advanced. There are workout instructions on the fitness court itself and there’s a downloadable app. Kirsten Royster, President and Chief Operating Officer of Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center, said access to exercise equipment is really important and can sometimes be a barrier. Especially, during COVID-19. “ I think during the pandemic we have certainly seen some challenges of how people can still incorporate exercise and feel safe. But, we also know how important it is not only being healthy but reducing stress and anxiety,” Royster said. The fitness court is funded by Novant and Kernersville Parks and Recreation through a national fitness campaign grant. It’s already open and ready for use.
