One of the hottest trends for parks and playgrounds, outdoor gym equipment are building more than just muscle.
With the growing demand for free and unstructured physical activity in the fresh air, outdoor gym equipment and exercise stations are more popular than ever.
Outdoor gym equipment is now commonly located in parks, alongside walking paths, in schools and universities as well as workplaces and aged care homes. And what we’re fast realising as this trend goes from strength to strength is that the benefits are being felt at both the individual and community level.
A real community asset, outdoor gym equipment improves community health and wellbeing; provide opportunities for socialisation, and build a sense of community.
For individuals, outdoor gyms support overall fitness, strength, balance and flexibility; help relieve stress and tension, and improve self-esteem.
