Rockland County is ranked the seventh healthiest county in New York. On Tuesday May 10, MVP Health Care, the Village of Haverstraw, and National Fitness Campaign (NFC) announced a partnership to bring a free, outdoor Fitness Court® to the Village of Haverstraw.
The Fitness Court, located adjacent to the Haverstraw Community Center, will open this summer with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The MVP Health Care Fitness Court will provide the community with increased access to outdoor exercise programs.
The MVP Health Care Fitness Court in the Village of Haverstraw is a result of a partnership between MVP Health Care and NFC to expand free access to high quality workouts for communities around the state. The Fitness Court is a free, open-air wellness center that allows users to leverage their own body weight to get a complete workout. Created with adults of all ages and ability in mind, the workouts are adaptable for all fitness levels and allow users to move at their own pace. Users can also download the free Fitness Court app, which acts as a coach-in-your-pocket and transforms the outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness ecosystem.
“The launch of the MVP Health Care Fitness Court in the Village of Haverstraw is a step towards 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 new, innovative wellness options like the Fitness Court reinforces our commitment to giving back to the people we serve and places we call home. We are proud to partner with NFC and the Village of Haverstraw to bring this unique opportunity to the local community and look forward to seeing you on the Fitness Court. ”
“The Village is excited to see the MVP Health Care Fitness Court come to fruition and provide our residents with a free exercise alternative that can be used year-round in the fresh air,” said Village Mayor, Michael Kohut. “Although it has been a few years in the making, with assistance from MVP Health Care, and all our other partners, Haverstraw is ready to make this court a reality and start making a vastly improved outdoor recreation area next to the Haverstraw Center.”
“We’re excited to bring our campaign to make world-class fitness free to the Village of Haverstraw,” said Mitch Menaged, Founder of National Fitness Campaign. “Together with the Village and MVP Health Care, NFC is happy to be part of a wellness network growing across the nation.”
Construction of the Fitness Court has begun and will be completed early this summer.
