PALMDALE — The city of Palmdale and Kaiser Permanente will kick off their inaugural National Fitness Court Challenge with a launch party on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 10 a.m., at the Fitness Court at Pelona Vista Park, located at 37800 Tierra Subida Avenue.
The Fitness Court Challenge is an opportunity for residents to commit to a healthy lifestyle and set goals such as weight loss, building muscle mass, beginning a new exercise routine, or getting back on track. The winner of the Challenge will receive a four pack of DryTown Water Park season passes.
The Launch Party will feature music, giveaways, information from community partners, and an introduction to the Fitness Court and how to use the equipment. There also will be an initial weigh and waist measurement for the Challenge
Once registered, participants will receive information about the Challenge and the “check-in dates” where weight and waist measurements will be logged.
“If you cannot make it to the Launch Party but still would like to participate in the Challenge, please email me at jtallakson@cityofpalmdale,org so other arrangements can be made,” said Recreation Supervisor Jennifer Tallakson.
