Suitable for all ages, the outdoor gym equipment in your local parks is free to use and includes low impact, resistance-based equipment such as cross trainers, treadmills, exercise bikes and stretch stations. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced exerciser, you can enjoy a full workout including toning, cardio and chill out exercises. Families can even exercise together.

Councillor Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, “We know how important local parks are to residents and we would like to encourage them to use green spaces as much as possible for their leisure activities. Exercising outdoors is much more fun than slogging away on a traditional treadmill. The outdoor gym equipment provides the opportunity to exercise in a pleasant environment and you are bound to pick up some useful tips from the free training sessions. Do come along and have a go!”
