Old Quarry physical education staff receives $4,500 for new equipment

Lemont, IL

The Old Quarry Middle School physical education staff was awarded $4,500 from the School District 113A Educational Foundation.

The grant money was used to purchase two Exerbikes and an XBox system from Motion Fitness. Exerbike GS is a commercial-grade stationary bike enhanced with pedal-to-play gamercize technology.

The bike user can control their favorite XBox 360 game and the feel of exercise is masked by the excitement of the game on the screen, according to the information provided by the district.
