Newton Hill’s fitness circuit is the first of its kind in Worcester County. Circuit training is a popular fitness trend and parcourse-style fitness stations are adaptable to different exercises and accessible by people of all skill level. The course expands upon the recreational opportunities already provided at Newton Hill, like disc golf, hiking, cross-country, tennis, and basketball, with the hopes of attracting more visitors and improving the health of the community.
The Friends of Newton Hill conceived of the fitness circuit – a twelve station circuit featuring elevated boxes with apparatuses to facilitate different exercises – earlier this year and completed the project in October.
