Brief: New Fitness Trail in Wildwood Park

The Town of Vienna, in partnership with the Vienna Rotary Club and QR F.I.T. Trail, LLC, will introduce a new fitness trail in Wildwood Park during a special ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Talahi Road SE and the W&OD Trail in Vienna.

The new fitness trail is called a QR Fit Trail and features a series of exercise stations that utilize QR (Quick Response) codes and transforms the linear Wildwood trail into a fitness trail by allowing users to download exercises via smart phones while walking the trail. Each fitness trail station will give users four options for exercising—core, upper body, lower body and flexibility. Users will be able to scan the code at each station using their smart phone’s QR Code reader and watch demonstrations of the station’s exercises and access step-by-step instructions. These exercises will change throughout the year, so users are encouraged to stop by often for new and challenging routines.

The trail is free and open to the public and no equipment is necessary. A QR Code reader (available for download at no charge via your phone’s app store, market or world) accessible on a mobile device is necessary to view exercise station information. The QR Fit Trail will be available after Nov. 10. This trail was made possible through the support of the Vienna Rotary Club.
