Olympic Athletes, international visitors and local residents of Whistler BC will have the opportunity to enjoy a unique outdoor gym activity while visiting Whistler for the 2010 winter Olympic Games.

GreenGym outdoor fitness parks, the Canadian leading brand of outdoor fitness equipment, is installing 13 outdoor exercise stations at the resort municipality of Whistler in time for the Olympic Games opening ceremony. After 6 months of evaluation the resort municipality of Whistler has decided to install the GreenGym outdoor fitness park and provide the many visitors and athletes with free access to a unique outdoor gym facility.

"We're delighted to partner with the resort municipality of Whistler that shares our vision and goals - a healthier and more active Canada," says Guy Chaham, Executive Director, GreenGym. "We really feel that our unique outdoor fitness gym is a great add-on to the municipality's open parks concept and supports the overall message of the Olympics. It will allow everyone of all ages and physical abilities to enjoy outdoor fitness and healthy activity while watching and cheering those who made active living and sport a profession."

"Although we have installed our fitness parks across Canada in more than 40 communities this specific park in Whistler will be installed in the most exciting of times. As a Canadian company we are very excited to provide our fantastic product to the city and hope to grab the world's attention".

The outdoor fitness park concept was introduced to Canada 2 years ago by GreenGym and not long after they developed a close partnership with ParticipACTION, which is well known as the national voice for physical activity and sport participation in Canada. Together they jointly encourage municipalities, schools, community organizations and businesses to install this easy-to-use, weather resistant outdoor fitness and gym equipment in parks, school yards, office grounds and public spaces to help their communities get active and stay healthy. Through its partnership with GreenGym, ParticipACTION will provide a grant equivalent to 10 percent of the purchase price to the communities that install GreenGym outdoor fitness equipment.
