What does an outdoor gym bring to a site? Within the workplace it’s an investment in employee wellbeing; for a school it’s an inclusive way to encourage young people to get active; on a campus or in a park it’s a free amenity which adds value to the area and makes fitness accessible.
Wherever you find it, an outdoor gym is a community venture. It’s a way to bring people together and show them that varied, exciting exercise is achievable and affordable.
The Sunshine Gym team at Broxap have re-designed their outdoor equipment packages to suit more sites than ever before.
Strength and Health for Adults:
Musculoskeletal exercises are necessary to building and maintaining strength, but also to improving mobility.
Sunshine Gym adds no in-built resistance to their equipment, allowing the user’s own body weight and the speed at which they move to control the intensity of the exercise.
This means that strength equipment such as the Double Squat Push (an outdoor leg press) is suitable for healthcare facility packages as well as those intended for more intense training for firefighters, for example.
There is similar variety when it comes to heart-healthy cardio. The low-resistance functionality of this equipment means no-one is excluded; even users with low mobility can reap the benefits.
More advanced users can push themselves without risking damage to their joints, thanks to a selection of exercises which avoid the harsh impact associated with jumping and jogging.
These self-contained exercise units require no loose weights or additional equipment, making them the perfect choice no matter where your outdoor exercise provisions are required.
You’ll find that these uses and advantages are available without the need to compromise on value or practicality.
Little space is needed for a Sunshine Gym, and the equipment is suitable for installation into various surfaces, a grass and rubber matting option is included to keep costs lower.
Beneficial Play for Children:
The Sunshine Gym team has revitalised the world of playground equipment and become a leading supplier of outdoor fitness equipment for UK schools.
With Balance Beams, Horse Riders, Sky Steppers and Slalom Skiers, their KS1 & KS2 packages are bursting with opportunities for a particularly beneficial brand of imaginative play.
A Sunshine Gym will contribute to the development of gross motor skills, coordination and long-term cardiovascular health.
The Sunshine Gym Effect:
A Sunshine Gym package does wonders for social interaction, bringing renewed purpose and vitality to an outdoor space. What’s more, with several types of multi-user equipment, both the adults’ and children’s ranges promote sociable, enjoyable fitness for all.
