Get Fit With North Phoenix Exercise Park

Posted on 11/01/19 by James Garcia

 

November is here, so we all hope temperatures have dipped enough to venture outside again and get active.

AARP Arizona’s new outdoor fitness park in north Phoenix offers residents a chance to do just that.

The park, which will open on Tuesday, Nov. 19, is located at the Rose Mofford Sports Complex, at 9833 N. 25th Ave.

It’s part of a national AARP initiative to celebrate the organization’s 60th anniversary by building outdoor fitness parks in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Phoenix site is designed by FitLot, a national nonprofit promoting outdoor exercise.

It features a series of stations where exercisers can use their body weight as resistance and that are easily adaptable for all fitness levels.

Users can attach resistance bands to upright beams at ankle, waist and shoulder height for more varied routines. And there is space for group activities.

Safe parks are among the top three community features older adults want in their neighborhood, AARP survey data show.

The sites are designed to boost physical and mental health,
as well as improve community
connections.
