Fortitude Outdoor Fitness

established in 2016

What was once Bennington Hills Golf Course, 

is now Fortitude Outdoor Fitness & Venue.


I love sharing my passion of fitness with others. This venture started in 2011 when I opened a personal training facility, Fitness Coliseum, in Owosso, Michigan. Working with individuals and groups, I began to see the vision of what fitness can do for others. In 2014, I completed my first Tough Mudder, the inspiration behind Fortitude. Since then, I have completed 10. 

My outdoor fitness venture started in 2013 when I developed a half mile running trail and an area of obstacles for my clients and group fitness classes to train outdoors. Taking multiple groups to Warrior Dash, there was a revelation of excitement I saw in everyone. Realizing there was not a location for people to train and/or receive training, I developed the idea of Fortitude.

Bennington Hills Golf Course, located on M52, South of Owosso and seven miles North of I-69, was the ideal location for Fortitude Outdoor Fitness. With an overgrown blank canvas to work with, I have taken and developed the property into a one of a kind outdoor training location & venue. With 4 miles of groomed trails, an assortment of obstacles, benches and more, Fortitude Outdoor Fitness is a great location for you to get outside and enjoy the true beauty of nature.

I take pride in the land and what/how we evolve. From fitness to venue, we offer more on one piece of property than ever before. Spring, Summer and Fall is filled with events, sand volleyball, outdoor concerts, 5K races and more. My goal is for you to have a great time and experience when you visit Fortitude!

Get outdoors and explore,
