The city of Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, recently completed the construction of the projects ahead of schedule that are part of the nationwide fitness program of 2022.

This has not only further strengthened the construction of the 15-minute fitness circles – places where locals can go and have a workout within a short walk of their homes – but has also met the different fitness needs of more residents.

Some 250 fitness paths have been built and updated in the city around the residential quarters, adding to the renovation of old communities and the rural revitalization – making it much more convenient for the public to exercise.

Overall, the construction of high-quality fitness venues and facilities has been promoted, with 10 football and basketball courts and 10 indoor gymnasiums added.
