Improved outdoor gym equipment unveiled in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs

Improved outdoor gym equipment unveiled in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs
May 26, 2020

Visitors to Sydney's eastern beach suburb, Clovelly, now have access to new equipment at the outdoor gym in Burrows Park.

Along with a new multipurpose gym station, the 17 new pieces of equipment from The Great Outdoor Gym Company (TGO), include Chest Press, Seated Row, Lateral Pull Down, Shoulder Press, Bench, Leg Press, Hand Bike, Spinning Bike, Cross Trainer and Recumbent Bike among others.

The popular gym was closed in December 2019 when it was found that rust had caused extensive damage to the previous equipment and needed to be replaced.

As part of Randwick Council’s commitment to improving facilities, the recreational area was increased to accommodate new pieces of corrosion resistant gym equipment and to include the installation of new softfall made from recycled material.

Randwick Mayor Danny Said advised “exercising outdoors provides a mental boost that can’t be replicated indoors.

“Studies have indicated that it helps to lift people’s mood and reduce depression, which I know is very important for a lot of people right now.

“Equally important is that these outdoor gyms are free to use and available for everyone. We currently have five outdoor gyms within the Randwick City area, all designed so that people with different fitness levels, ages and abilities can use them.

“We do ask that people keep themselves safe by washing their hands or using sanitiser before and after use, keeping 1.5metre distance between each other and to limit group gatherings to no more than 10 people.”

Randwick Council also has outdoor gyms located at Chifley Reserve, Kensington Park, Maroubra Beach and Frenchmans Bay Beach.

TGO are distributed in Australia by Playrope and the equipment is specifically built for local conditions and supported by a 25 year guarantee.

All moving elements are within the framework of the equipment.

All equipment is free of crush points, entrapment points, shear-points and sharp edges.

All products include user how-to videos to demonstrate safe and optimal usage.
