Now that summer is officially here, it’s never been a better time to get outside and start getting active! Making space for outdoor fitness equipment in your playground, community centre, school or park can go a long way in giving your users a complete experience every time they visit. Parents and eager fitness enthusiasts alike will fall in love with the opportunity to work out in an outdoor environment, soaking in fresh air and vitamin D on sunny days – and perhaps giving some people the vital change of scenery that helps them to achieve more.
In this article, we’ve outlined some of the best outdoor fitness equipment that Wicksteed Leisure offer, ranging from all-round exercise staples to accessible, visually striking equipment that will take your park from ordinary to extraordinary!
Bars and beams for cost-effective outdoor fitness equipment
One of the simplest, but most effective pieces of fitness equipment in any outdoor arsenal is a set of simple bars or Balance Beams that are relatively low-maintenance while also giving visitors a chance of a robust and full-bodied workout. Our balance beam comes in a variety of colours to suit your needs and allow you to work on your balance, concentration and stability with very little preparation; perfect for casual visitors and regular exercisers alike. There are so many different exercises that can be performed on a balance beam and the Wicksteed Fit App will take you through all of them!
Meanwhile, Wicksteed Leisure produce a variety of static equipment that caters to every fitness need. From Hamstring Stretch bars that get your thighs warmed up to Parallel Bars, Push-Up Bars and Pull-Up Bars that help you work on your core, upper body muscles and arms, our exercise equipment is a no-brainer choice for your fitness area, especially if you’ve got limited space or you’re looking for a cost-effective, low-maintenance fitness alternative.
Full-body outdoor fitness equipment for a great all-rounder
Wicksteed Leisure design and manufacture a variety of fitness staples for a full-body workout. These fixtures allow your visitors to take their fitness regime to the next level in your park, whether they’re public or private.
Space Walkers (i.e. elliptical trainers) are designed to provide low-impact cardiovascular workouts while engaging multiple muscle groups, while Rowers mimic the actions of rowing a boat and engage your arms, leg, back and core. Our wide variety of outdoor fitness equipment is available in multiple colours to fit in with your spaces perfectly, and satisfy customers looking for rigorous, serious exercise.
Inclusive outdoor fitness equipment for variety and accessibility
At Wicksteed Leisure, we believe that everybody should have the equal opportunity to access outdoor fitness equipment and take advantage of the benefits of exercising outdoors. To that end, we design and manufacture a number of machines which bring this variety straight to your park or outdoor area so that you can give all of your visitors the chance to expand their outdoor fitness regimes.
Our Inclusive Chest Press & Pull-Down Exerciser Combo is great for giving your visitors an upper body workout that will keep them coming back time and time again. Strengthening both chest and back muscles, our exerciser combos efficiently use space by combining two machines into one and are also available in alternative designs. Meanwhile, the Inclusive Hand Bike gives you a great opportunity to put your arm muscles to the test, and the Two-Wheel Spinner gives outdoor fitness a fun and unique spin – literally! All of these items can be accessed from a seated position in a wheelchair, but are equally usable from a standing position.
Calisthenics Static Fitness Zone brings the spectacle with low maintenance
For a real show-stopper in your outdoor fitness area, look no further than the Calisthenics unit. This compact gym is perfect for experienced fitness enthusiasts, allowing them to use their body weight to perform a variety of different exercises to build strength, flexibility and functional fitness.
Featuring a number of stations that give you the same experience as parallel bars and Swingalongs, as well as a leg raiser that allows you exercise your core, the Calisthenics Unit is also a visually arresting addition to any good outdoor fitness area that will truly make your space stand out during the summer. Best of all, it has no moving parts, meaning it’s easy to manage and low-maintenance. This cost-effective option will provide endless opportunities for exercise all throughout the summer!
