Englewood and Xrcise Gym Unite to Bring Outdoor Exercise Equipment to City Park

Englewood 2nd Ward City Councilman Michael Cohen announced at a recent Englewood council meeting the passing of a resolution establishing a pilot project bringing outdoor exercise equipment to one of the city’s public parks at no cost to taxpayers. This project is based on a cooperative relationship being developed between the City of Englewood and Teaneck-based Xrcise Gym.

This project originated at a chance meeting that Councilman Cohen had at the Xrcise Gym booth at the 2016 NJ League of Municipalities conference last November. Under this pilot program Xrcrise Gym is providing a number of pieces of equipment, including resistance strength training machines, to Englewood, which it has funded through local private sponsorships. The program allows city residents to determine their desire for additional equipment in future years in the city’s other parks. Under the arrangement the only obligation for the city is to have the Department of Public Works provide the installation.

“Just recently a resident speaking at the council’s public session mentioned the appearance of such equipment in parks in our neighboring town of Teaneck. While having planned to formally announce this arrangement at the following council meeting, it was truly a pleasure to see that in having the ability to inform him and the other residents present that we were in fact bringing such equipment to Englewood we seem to truly have the pulse of those we represent. I am looking forward to having our residents utilize this equipment and to let the governing body know after the season what its opinion of this pilot project is,” said Councilman Cohen.

According to the company, it plans to offer a new line of multiple resistance machines throughout all 50 states, and is gratified to be starting in its local community.

Xrcise Gym is a leading provider of outdoor gym machines and has been operating since 2015.
