A key benefit of an outdoor gym is the ability to exercise in the fresh air rather than a ‘stuffy' gym. However, there are many more advantages to using outdoor fitness equipment.
Outdoor gyms in community spaces and public parks are free for the public to use. There are no costly membership fees or contracts to tie you in, making outdoor fitness accessible to everyone. There are no gym opening times to be tied to or off-peak-only timings to negotiate. Simply turn up and use the outdoor fitness equipment whenever suits you.
Unlike most indoor gym equipment which requires electricity. Once installed outdoor gyms are designed to only require the power of the person using it. Outdoor gyms get people outside, appreciating the green spaces in their communities.
There is no need for an instructor when using outdoor fitness equipment. The apparatus is simple and safe to use, and resistance is provided by the users' own bodyweight. Because of the public location of the gym equipment, outdoor gyms become a sociable place. Perfect for group exercise, helping to build strong and healthy communities.
The health advantages of exercising in the great outdoors are not confined to strengthening muscles and burning calories. Moving your workout outside, allows users to benefit from extra doses of vitamin D from the sun. Plus a mood boost that comes from being outdoors and breathing fresh air while you exercise.
