ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — MVP Health Care has partnered with SUNY Schenectady, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Albany County, Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and the National Fitness Campaign to bring nine outdoor Fitness Courts to the Capital Region. MVP said the courts will provide residents with equitable access to free, high-quality workouts using state-of-the-art equipment.

The MVP Health Care Fitness Courts are free, open-air wellness centers that allow users to use their own bodyweight to get a complete workout. The courts are designed for all fitness levels. Users can download the free Fitness Court app which acts as a coach-in-your-pocket.

“The launch of the MVP Health Care Fitness Courts throughout the Capital Region is a monumental step toward providing access to resources that can change the trajectory of someone’s health and wellness journey,” said MVP Health Care’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Chris Del Vecchio. “As a leading health care services company, investing in our local communities and offering innovative options like the Fitness Court, reinforces our commitment to giving back to the people we serve.”
