Candace Parker Unveils Free Outdoor Fitness Court in Atlanta

The Muscle Milk Fitness Court is a collaboration with Parker and the brand’s initiative, “The Lifting Project,” to encourage healthy living.

Atlanta has gained a brand-new outdoor fitness facility courtesy of seven-time WNBA All-Star Candace Parker’s collaboration with Muscle Milk’s cause-based initiative, “The Lifting Project.”

The Muscle Milk Fitness Court opened at D.H. Stanton Park March 13. It offers a safe space for community members to exercise and engage in circuit training suitable for all fitness levels. “I think that Atlanta has given me so much,” Parker told Fox 5. “I think everyone can benefit from just having someplace to go to lift, to be healthy and to get in better shape.”

Muscle Milk’s project aims to make inner and outer strength more accessible through cause-based initiatives. The fitness court is an extension of this program.

Plans for the fitness court included approachable exercises designed for all levels to provide a full-body workout in minutes, seven zones for visitors to cycle through, including core, squats, lunges, upper body push/pull, agility circuits, and bend back strengthening.

“Working out and rebuilding muscle is an essential component of my routine every single day,” Parker said then. “Increasing access to effective fitness is incredibly important to me, so I couldn’t be happier to play a role in creating this Fitness Court for people to have a convenient space to break a sweat.”

The Lifting Project called upon fitness enthusiasts to enter a contest for a chance to become a Certified Strength Trainer.
