Older people thrive in outdoor gyms

Older people thrive in outdoor gyms
August 17, 2016

With the significant growth in the popularity and provision of outdoor gyms, and the widespread acknowledgement over their role in delivering greater wellness across all communities, it has been reported that older people are increasingly taking advantage of quality gym equipment to assist in maintaining and improving their health.

 A recent segment on Channel Seven’s popular morning show Sunrise recently featured the health benefits that a_space outdoor gyms are providing for the older exercisers.

The brief segment focused on a seniors fitness group who regularly visit an a_space outdoor gym positioned at Randwick City Council’s Maroubra Beach in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs – demonstrating that age is no barrier to improving health.

In the segment, a_space ambassador, Lauren Hannaford, described how the locally manufactured a_space outdoor gym equipment addresses the needs of all age groups.

Hannaford pointed out that the equipment is specifically designed to improve dexterity, flexibility and strength, which are essential to maintaining quality of life for older adults.
