Healthy Movement

The Healthy Movement Project is aimed at increasing our members’ access to physical fitness activities with PelotonTM bikes for indoor cycling. The equipment will be placed at locations where members may spend a good portion of their time such as adult day programs and psychosocial rehabilitation programs. PelotonTM designs commercial grade bicycles which are durable, user-friendly, and have interactive classes that help guide and promote use.

Potential programs that may receive the bikes include social recreation programs, group homes, ADVP, psychosocial rehabilitation programs, and day treatment programs.

Programs applying for a bicycle must operate within Trillium’s 26 counties. The RFA was announced earlier this year and closed on March 13, 2019. Selected locations are listed below:

  • A Caring Heart
  • Beaufort County Developmental Center
  • Better Connections
  • Carobell
  • Easter Seals UCP
  • GHA Autism Supports
  • Hyde DSS
  • LifeQuest Inc.
  • MACTA LLC
  • Pride in NC
  • Quality Care Solutions
  • Rachels House
  • RHA Health Services
  • RI International
  • Roanoke Development Center
  • Solid Foundation Facilities, LLC

Sites will be chosen based on funding availability, completeness of application, providing access to a high volume of members, and covering as many counties in our catchment area as possible. Sites will report on participant use of the equipment and progress toward healthy goals. Staff will help train members on how to use the equipment and encourage participation.
