Who needs a gym when you’ve got the great outdoors?
You might think the local playground is a place just for the kids, but you’d be surprised – monkey bars, swings and even the humble bench can provide the perfect equipment for a full body workout – and it’s much more fun!
Use benches for step ups, tricep dips and incline press ups, or as markers to run between. You can do wall sits against trees, run in between lampposts, and if you’re lucky enough to have a full outdoor gym in your local park you can make use of that too.
And if you’re free every Saturday at 9am you can join the thousands of runners across the country taking part in their local parkrun – a free, weekly timed 5k run, jog or walk around the park!
