In order to encourage people to adopt healthy and active lifestyles, the Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough’s technical services division designed a mobile workout unit that will be installed throughout borough territory on a year-long basis.
Baptised CONEX, the platform will be equipped with three exercise machines: (ski exerciser, elliptical trainer, arms & legs combo exerciser). It will be made available to citizens in order to incite them to carry out a physical activity, or to temporarily replace a facility undergoing repairs. This platform can also be used for educational or promotional purposes.
Conceived in the spirit of the Déclaration pour un arrondissement en santé de Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce tabled in June 2013, this new type of sports facility will be available as of June 25, 2014, and it will then be deployed in CDN-NDG neighbourhoods according to a program based on demand.
