Outdoor Gym Workouts

An outdoor gym from Sunshine Gym is generally open for use whenever visitors want it to be. Our equipment is free to access once installed and creating neighbourhood outdoor gyms opens up fitness to the community at a convenient location.

But once an outdoor gym is in place, how can users make the most of it?

While many pieces of equipment mirror the type of machines found in traditional indoor gyms, being in an outdoor gym really does open up a new world of workout opportunities.

From a short but intense HIIT blast to regular exercise to improve general health, an outdoor gym can accommodate a variety of physical activity programmes.

There’s no need to look up a class timetable – with an outdoor gym users can work out to their own time, pace and to their own routine.

This can include mixing it up with a combination of five minutes on each piece of equipment alternated with a jog around the outdoor gym.

Or matching each rep on the equipment with a simple exercise like star jumps or the dreaded burpees.

One of the best things about an outdoor gym is the fact it is outdoors – and studies have shown people are driven to workout longer or push themselves a little harder in a more natural environment compared to an indoor environment.

Some of the best workouts for an outdoor gym make the most of the open space as well as the equipment.

An outdoor gym is also a great facility for workouts which target the whole body, combining strength and cardio.

At Sunshine Gym we offer a wide variety of equipment for both types of training and we also offer a cardio range for children and users under 4’ 7”.

Designing outdoor gyms with the right mix of equipment enables users to complete a full body workout at any time that suits them.
