Outdoor Fitness Park To Promote Healthy Activity On Eastern Caribbean Island
MoveStrong was excited to be onsite for the opening event of the new #FitGround, made possible by National Insurance Corporation (NIC), for the community of Gros Islet, St. Lucia located in the Eastern Caribbean!
Very grateful for NIC and all those that played a roll in making this possible! The Fitness Park dedication event allowed us to meet the amazing team at NIC, St. Lucia Government officials, Olympic Committee President, local fitness professionals, media, and community members to talk health and fitness activities that work towards improving lives in St. Lucia! Followed by workouts and demonstration of all the MoveStrong equipment in the newly dedicated outdoor fitness park!
"The National Insurance recently launched one of its many Outdoor Fitness Gyms at the Beausjour Promenade.
This project is aimed at making physical activity and exercise more accessible and free to the public due to the high number of non-communicable diseases that has caught the attention of the NIC. These NCD's has caused an increase in the number of sickness claims coming into the NIC and therefore NIC found it necessary to embark on this project."- NIC
Now Island residents have a place to take part in fitness and exercise the MoveStrong way while enjoying the outdoors and getting fit together!
Stay tuned for more to come from the opening event and proud sponsors that made the first Outdoor Fitness Park possible in St. Lucia!👍🙏
Below are some action shots of the event and demonstrations of the FitGround equipment. The Outdoor Fitness Park design and layout was closely planned with the Insurance company, City officials, and Daren Sammy Cricket Grounds stadium. MoveStrong equipment includes the T-Rex FTS station with monkey bars, Push-up Bars, Stall Bars, Elite Parallel Bars, Over/Under Agility post, and Adjustable Ab bench.
