Getting fit just got more fun

running

Imagine you had a fabulous sea view and open spaces to play and run.

Coupled with an outside circuit training facility with no gym fees. Open all hours and open to all. (except dogs)

If you are anything like my family, then there is every chance that you would use it at least twice a day. Maybe more. If it was on your doorstep.

Boy, oh boy! Wish it was on my doorstep. Please tell me that there are more of these dotted around the UK!

      I saw so many different ages and types of people using it at the same time. No one put off by ability, age or physique. There was everyone from 4 years old to quite elderly ladies. Non-gym users to muscle-bound athletes. A give-it-a-go facility. Hope there are more.

    Another one! I saw one of these at our local park just a few days ago – it wasn’t there when we last went, but it’s popped up now! So, yes, it seems there are a few being dotted about now… 🙂

      We couldn’t remember seeing it last time we were in this park. This one was opened at the beginning of 2012. Lovely to think there might be others. Wish there was one in our local area. Maybe there is!

    What a great idea…actually looks like lots of fun and with a view too! I wouldn’t have an excuse not to exercise with one of these close by really…..Hope you find more!

      There really would be no excuse if it was close by. Loved how people jogged along the coastal path (and all the steps!), completed a circuit and then off again. If only……

    We had these installed in our local park and within no time at all they were vandalised, so sad that this kind of thing happens.
    We also have ping pong (table tennis)tables in all of the parks local to us and I think you can even borrow bats and balls from the cafes.

      That is a real shame. Why??? I just don’t understand. I think a facility like this would be brilliant as it is so inclusive. I do like the idea of table tennis tables in parks too. Let’s hope they remain unscathed.

    I’ve never seen one before but they look fab – what a view to workout to! Thanks for sharing with Country Kids.

      Let’s hope they become more widespread. Thanks for hosting.

      Absolutely! I think I would find it very easy to keep fit if this was in easy reach.

    I love places like these, we have one not too far from us within a country park, we are actually going there this week. Places like this makes exercise fun for me and not a chore, much more pleasant than a sweaty gym. The best part too, not a horrific show every lump mirror in sight 🙂

      I hadn’t thought about the mirrors! Yes, I prefer to look out to sea. Much prefer! Lucky you having a park like this within striking distance! I’m envious!
