The City of Saginaw, in partnership with Saginaw County Parks & Recreation, last year’s CII Grant recipient, finished-up construction this summer of the court, located on Fordney St. in front of the Frank N. Andersen Water and Skate Park.


Established by the National Fitness Campaign, The Fitness Court® is an outdoor bodyweight circuit-training system featuring a series of full-body exercises that can be completed in just seven minutes. “7 Movements in 7 Minutes”is a simple yet powerful workout created for a range of athletic abilities, and is optimally performed on the Fitness Court®. Developed by experts in the field, each exercise takes 45 seconds, with a 15-second interlude between sets, and is shown to burn more calories per minute than most other forms of exercise.


The Fitness Court® accommodates a variety of skill levels and abilities at each station, from beginner to expert. Each piece of equipment allows users to leverage their bodyweight at different angles and levels of resistance as a tool to improve over time. In addition to the “7 Movements in 7 Minutes”training system, the Fitness Court® can be used in thousands of ways and variations. The possibilities for custom movements and routines are endless.
