The Healthy Movement Project is aimed at increasing our members’ access to physical fitness activities with Peloton™ bikes for indoor cycling. The equipment was placed at locations where members spend a good portion of their time such as adult day programs and psychosocial rehabilitation programs. Peloton™ designs commercial grade bicycles which are durable, user-friendly, and have interactive classes that help guide and promote use.
Participants in the Healthy Movement Project were chosen from a Request for Proposal process that closed May 3, 2019. A total of 63 bikes are awarded to 19 provider organizations at 55 different locations throughout the Trillium catchment area.
Programs received the bikes include social recreation programs, group homes, adult day vocational programs, psychosocial rehabilitation programs, and day treatment programs.
Sites were chosen based on funding availability, completeness of application, serving 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.
