What You Give Will Grow FitLot

What We Do

Most people don’t know this but Thomas spends 2-3 hours at the gym everyday but not everyone has an NFL training facility to workout in like he does.  So in 2017, we sponsored the first FitLot outdoor fitness park to be built in New Orleans and the first FitLot in the country. We wanted to show people that what you give can actually grow into a community space and resource for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy. We believe that strong healthy individuals are the foundation of strong healthy communities and the, “What You Give Will Grow FitLot” is now a community space for all to benefit from. We hope that this project inspires other communities to grow their own FitLot and create stronger futures for communities nationwide.

How We Do It

We teamed up with FitLot a New Orleans based nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping communities throughout the country find the resources they need to plan, build and program their own outdoor fitness parks.

WYGWG volunteers came out to the Lafitte Greenway for a community build day and constructed the park in one afternoon.  

Free community class are hosted several times a week at the park and anyone can sign up by going to FitLot.org/signup.
