On, Tuesday, August 22, Airdrie's Mayor, Peter Brown and other members of the city's council will be on hand to demonstrate the Active Airdrie Circuit.

The Active Airdrie Circuit had been made possible by the collaboration of Genesis Place and the City’s Parks department. The Active Airdrie Circuit is outlined by a series of eight signs, comprising seven stations and a trailhead sign stationed near the Genesis Place North Arenas parking lot entrance to the park.

“Genesis Place is about creating recreation opportunities for the community,” said Brad Anderson, Manager, of Genesis Place and 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.

Participants are encouraged to utilize the park trail as an exercise circuit, combining strength training and cardiovascular opportunities as they move from station to station. Each station sign outlines an activity option, often inclusive of modifications based on ability level and a QR code to view a video demonstration of the exercise on a mobile device. The circuit activities were mapped out and designed by Genesis Place fitness staff.

Next week, the city's Mayor and fellow councillors will be led by Genesis Place fitness staff through the first two activity stations.

East Lake Regional Park offers sports fields, tennis/pickleball courts, outdoor fitness equipment, a boarded multi-use rink and a portion of its surrounding trail borders Ed Eggerer Athletic Park.

The East Lake Regional Park can be accessed behind Genesis Place’s North Arenas entrance, or at 730 East Lake Road Northeast.
