Health comes first in La Laguna with new street apparatus
La Laguna is distributing several bio-health devices in different areas of the municipality.
The initiative has involved the investment of 15,000 euros with the goal to “improve the quality of life of our residents,” said the Mayor of La Laguna, José Alberto Díaz.
Specifically, the local council is installing a total of 23 pieces of equipment in seven public spaces of the municipality such as the Tranvía, La Candelaria, San Jerónimo, Taco, Los Andenes, San Juan Bautista and El Cardonal squares. .
Among the gymnastics equipment are the rudder biosaludable (which improves and increases the circulation of the arms), the ski (for a cardiovascular training to exercise arms and legs), the bars (improves the muscular condition of abdomen and back) and the so-called pony (improves cardiac and pulmonary capacity), among others.
Councillor for works and infrastructures, Candelaria Díaz said that “besides living longer, the important thing is to do it with the highest quality of life and physical exercise plays a fundamental role. The apparatuses of the bio-healthy circuits have been designed to meet certain needs and to delay the onset of the effects of aging in old age.”
“With the correct and adequate use of the biosaludable circuits it is possible to increase and maintain joint mobility, improve muscle strength, improve coordination and improve respiratory, car-diovascular and digestive functions, as well as the cognitive, sensory and motor functions of the brain.”
