Translink’s pop-up bus stop gym keeps NI public on the move

on

Translink has partnered with Better Gym to encourage more people in Northern Ireland to keep active and on the move.

The latest development is part of Translink’s efforts to promote active travel modes and their associated health benefits including using public transport as a simple way to introduce more exercise into your daily routine.

This week, a city-centre bus shelter will be transformed into a pop-up gym, getting passengers to think about their daily commute as part of their fitness journey.

Better Gym personal trainers will be on hand to inspire people to get moving and members of the public are able to have a go at two fitness tests: Beat the Bar hang challenge and 45-second step challenge. A leader-board will showcase the fastest and fittest that take on the challenge with prizes up for grabs for the winners.

The initiative is part of a wider strategy led by Translink to encourage people to get on-board and choose the bus and train as part of their daily commute, promoting the associated benefits for both physical and mental health, as well as improving air quality.

Popping up at Donegall Place on 5th March from 8.30am. Follow the conversation online at @Translink_NI or using #FitInFitness
