While most people focus on outdoor gym equipment prices, there are a number of other important factors!

Outdoor gym equipment for cardiovascular exercise (or “cardio”) is a great way to promote heart health and lung fitness, as well as improve circulation, endurance, and stamina. People who regularly participate in cardio also often sleep better at night, and are more likely to lose weight and burn fat. Aerobic exercise can be undertaken at different levels of intensity, and Fresh Air Fitness offers a variety of equipment to suit everyone, whether you’re more interested in air walking, rowing, or something else entirely.
Resistance training is a fantastic way to not only gain muscle but strengthen your tendons and ligaments, which in turn actually lowers your risk of exercise or sports-based injury. Building muscle mass also increases your base metabolic rate, meaning that the number of calories that you burn - even when not exercising - increases, which has a long-lasting beneficial effect. Strength training is suitable for all ages, and shouldn’t be neglected by seniors, as it greatly helps reduce muscle loss brought on by ageing, and is also reported to increase bone density and offset the risk of osteoporosis. We offer a range of outdoor gym equipment targeted at increasing users’ strength, which offers interesting alternatives to just lifting weights to build strength!
Exercises that focus on balance and flexibility make great warm up and cool down exercises, and are perfect for those with joint issues, as they are usually much lower impact than other forms of training. All ages can benefit from core strengthening training; children can improve on their coordination and spatial awareness, and older people will see a reduced risk of falls. Using outdoor gym equipment such as sit up benches, or the balance beam can really strengthen your core as well as boost your confidence and self-esteem - why not try it and see?
