Use Winter To Prepare For Spring Training

Get Your Community Ready For Spring Outdoor Fitness Training To Begin

Niagara Falls and lakes across Canada may be frozen at the moment, but communities are using these winter months to prepare for spring. We are noticing an increased interest and demand for outdoor fitness solutions, and now is the time to select the best solution for your location.

Outdoor training routines are designed to achieve gains in strength by building muscles, boosting cardiovascular fitness and burning fat. Body weight training routines can be easily geared to any fitness level, and outdoor fitness stations can provide fun and motivating environments for your community.

Your local PlayPower representative can help you equip your park so you are ready for spring!

Promote Fitness In Your Community With A Health And Fitness BBQ

Get Your Community Ready For The June 6th, 2015, National Health and Fitness Day

More and more communities are looking for ways to promote fitness, especially with Canada proclaiming the first Saturday of every June National Health and Fitness Day. One idea that Montreal has had success with is a Health and Fitness BBQ. A park was chosen with fitness equipment, healthy food prepared, and guest trainers lined up to demonstrate appropriate workout routines to the community.

To see an example, click this link to see a video of one of these events in Parc Laurier in Montreal. The trainers featured are Tribarta, a Calisthenics Team based in Montreal, and REGIMENT-Bartendaz Canada.

This day of healthy calisthenic workouts, great food, and instruction on how to use the fitness equipment in their local park can be an effective way to help build fitness in your community.

Your local PlayPower representative can help you equip your park so you are ready for June 6th the 2015 National Health and Fitness Day in Canada.

Little Tikes Commercial Launches New Products In New Orleans

On January 30, 2015, Little Tikes Commercial launched new products for the children of New Orleans to enjoy. The new slides, climbers, and bridges were a great hit with the children, as were the “Tire” Climbers/Clubhouses shown below.

The kids loved jumping up on them, crawling under them, and using them as a clubhouse to socialize or recharge if they were overstimulated. Great events like these help all children develop, as well as being beneficial for children with autism. Caregivers love them too, as the unique shape & size ensures children remain visible while recharging.

Calgary Mayor Voted World’s Best Mayor!

Naheed Nenshi, Calgary’s Mayor, has won the 2014 World Mayor Prize given by the City Mayors Foundation.  This urban research institute praised the Mayor’s leadership and management skills, which were especially necessary in 2013 as Calgary dealt with extensive flooding.

PlayPower knows of the Mayor’s work from his efforts on the redevelopment of Bowness Park, and  many other projects. Since the flood, a new Little Tikes Commercial play structure has been installed in Bowness Park and is awaiting the full re-opening in 2015!

Please join us in congratulating His Worship, Mayor of Calgary, Naheed Nenshi!
