Columbus County was the first North Carolina location to open a “Fitness Court” with the launch of a newly constructed facility on Government Complex Road in Whiteville Wednesday morning.
The Columbus County Parks and Recreation Department opened the outdoor gym to the public Wednesday during a 9 a.m. kickoff. After a brief ceremony and ribbon cutting, locally trained Fitness Court ambassadors demonstrated how to use the court’s features. The public also learned about a free mobile app allowing users to take classes and learn workout routines. The event also featured healthful snacks from local vendors and swag giveaways.
The bodyweight circuit training facility is suitable for adults (ages 14+) of all fitness abilities and is completely free of cost.
