PARKlife™ promotes sport among users of Prologis parks in Spain.
Physical activity forms part of the perfect formula for a healthy lifestyle, along with a good diet or adequate rest. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that adults aged between 18 and 64 engage in moderate aerobic physical activity for at least 150 to 300 minutes a week, i.e. between 2 1/2 and 5 hours of physical activity.
On this point, one of the objectives of PARKlife™ is to promote a healthy lifestyle, as evidenced by the numerous activities organised in Prologis’ logistics parks in Spain. Sport, in any of its forms, is essential in everyday life, although it is often difficult to find the right time for physical activity. For this reason, Prologis is doing its bit to make it possible.
Since returning from the summer holidays, among other activities, Prologis has held a Pilates session at the Prologis Park San Fernando facilities in Madrid, and a full session of stretching and relaxation techniques at the Prologis Park La Granada in Barcelona.
Another of the activities that the company recently organised was a complete session of trail running techniques, in collaboration with the Club d’Atletisme Sant Boi de Llobregat in Barcelona. In this training session, the participants had the opportunity to learn exercises and techniques of this sport and to put them into practice on the mountain of Sant Ramón.
In addition, under the umbrella of the PARKlife™ philosophy, through which the parks are equipped with various sports and leisure facilities, such as padel tennis courts, in September we held a padel tennis tournament in Barcelona with users of the Prologis La Granada y Subirats park, promoting and creating a community.
In the same way, in the Alcalá de Henares and San Fernando parks, we restarted the padel club, with free classes at all levels for our users, which are being very well received.
Beyond physical health, sport is also important for maintaining good mental health since, according to the WHO, it reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression.
