On Tuesday afternoon, the City of Airdrie unveiled the brand new Active Airdrie Circuit which is located at East Lake Regional Park.

In honour of the Council's focus area for the community on leisure, recreation, and culture, Genesis Place has collaborated with the City's Parks department to develop the Active Airdrie Circuit.

Eight markers, including seven stations and a trailhead sign are now placed next to the Genesis Place North Arenas parking lot entry to the park. The exercises that are included in the circuit are:

  • Walking lunges
  • Backwards walking
  • Side lunges
  • Tricep dips
  • Squats
  • Sprints


Each station sign describes a possible activity, frequently with adjustments dependent on skill level, and includes a QR code to access an exercise demonstration video on a mobile device.

“Genesis Place is about creating recreation opportunities for the community,” says Brad Anderson, Manager, of Genesis Place & Arenas. “We are pleased to partner with our Parks department to take that philosophy beyond the walls of our facility and inspire our residents and visitors to take their fitness routines outdoors. Airdrie is filled with opportunities to get moving.

The Genesis Place fitness staff planned and designed the circuit exercises.

"This hopefully will be the beginning of something across the city versus just being here at East Lake Park," explained Airdrie Mayor Peter Brown.

Anderson mentioned that he hopes this could become a gathering place for people that are trying to get active and they can do it together outside.
