At the park near my house, next to the children’s playground, there is an adult playground full of outdoor exercise equipment. I’ve tried out most of these contraptions and they are fun! But then, I consider exercise play.
This shoulder press uses your own body weight as resistance, like the power racks I used to enjoy at the gym.
This is like the elliptical machines at the gym, only without the motor and high tech readings. Bring your own heart monitor!
This is an air walker — cardio with no impact! It’s very fun, and as you can see, it has two different leg lengths.
This is a two-person cross country machine.
This one is a leg press. Again, it uses your own body weight. You can work out with a buddy.
Most of the equipment has instructions. They are made by a company called Greenfields Outdoor Fitness, and I think they are an awesome addition to my local park!
