New HealthQuest Fitness Stations Provide a Total Body Workout, Promote Regular Physical Activity

FOND DU LAC, WI--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - The benefits of regular physical activity include preventing chronic health conditions, promoting weight loss, boosting confidence and self-esteem and increasing energy. To provide more opportunities for outdoor exercise, BCI Burke has created HealthQuest Fitness Stations.

Designed for ages 13 and up, HealthQuest Fitness Stations provide the tools and information needed to complete a total body workout for beginner, intermediate and advanced users. Each individual can work at their own pace and intensity, modifying the suggested exercises, circuits and workouts to suit their own needs.

Combining the advanced science of total body workout and conditioning technology with good old-fashioned playground fun, HealthQuest Fitness Stations include four circuits addressing the elements of a whole body workout from start to finish. Separate workout stations address upper body, stretching and balance, core strength and cardiovascular exercises.

Early in the design phase of the HealthQuest Fitness Stations, Burke turned to professional exercise and health trainer Lynn Roethke for assistance in developing the extensive catalog of custom warm up, cool down and exercise routines. Lynn is an extremely accomplished athlete, certified personal trainer and business owner. A two-time judo Olympian and silver medalist in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul South Korea, she reigns as one of the most accomplished American judo athletes in the history of the sport. Lynn continues to teach and coach judo to children and adults and provides personal training for her clients at Club Olympia in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

"Learning about the benefits of getting and staying fit at a young age is important, and establishing regular exercise habits will ensure a lifetime of health and well-being. But the good news is that you can begin at any age! Burke's HealthQuest Fitness Stations provide an excellent variety of workout opportunities and guidance for anyone, at any fitness and experience level. And they're designed to be fun!"

-- Lynn Roethke, Olympic medal winner, personal fitness trainer and HealthQuest Fitness Stations Consultant

Stations are available either as a complete workout circuit program or individually, allowing customers to expand their exercise circuit as budget and space allow.

Constructed from heavy galvanized steel and impervious powder coat colors for long-lasting durability and finish, each HealthQuest Fitness Station is fully protected by Burke's unmatched non-prorated Generations Warranty, known widely as the best and longest product coverage in the industry.

BCI Burke, with headquarters in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, is a premier manufacturer of commercial playground, park, and recreation equipment and an avid champion of health and fitness for children and adults. More information is available at www.bciburke.com/healthquest.
