March 30, 2016

With the last five years having seen the concept of outdoor gyms growing from ‘an interesting idea’ to a well regarded asset in more than 300 communities across Australia, a_space recreation has been at the forefront of installations with their locally designed and manufactured Fit for Parks range.

Developed with the input of exercise physiologists and created to be accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels, hundreds of Fit for Parks outdoor gyms are now installed across Australia, delivering a wave of positive change by engaging communities with an enjoyable exercise, social and wellness benefits.

Explaining the benefits of the Fit for Parks range, an a_space recreation spokesperson explains “the popularity of the range can be put down to its inviting design, ease of use, clear instructional signage, and, of course, the fact that (the equipment) is free to access.”

The Fit for Parks range offers users a complete workout system helping to build strength, mobility and cardio fitness. Built to stringent safety standards the equipment is robust, being designed to withstand the harshest of environments.
