Life University (LIFE) pledged $35,000 for the purchase and installation of an outdoor fitness system at Kennesaw’s Swift-Cantrell Park. In January, Greg Harris, LIFE vice president of development and member of the Swift-Cantrell Park Foundation board, presented a check to Mayor Mark Mathews. “Life University is committed to teaching a vitalistic-based philosophy about health. The wellness station we’re sponsoring addresses environmental, social, physical and emotional dimensions of wellness that reflect one of LIFE’s pillars of success,” says Harris.
The station consists of 120 exercises and can accommodate up to 14 users at once. Two additional stations will feature low-impact, functional exercises to help older adults stay fit, prevent injury and maintain an independent healthy lifestyle.
