Context

Charnwood Borough Council has invested £40,000 in a new outdoor gym with its own phone app at Southfields Park in Loughborough to improve the open space and encourage people to get active.

Products supplied

Designed and installed by Proludic, the outdoor gym comprises 12 stations from the company's Urbanix range, set in dedicated zones – upper body, lower body and cardio – to provide a full body workout. Certified to gym standard EN16630, the Urbanix fitness range allows users to exercise all of the main core muscle groups as well as undertaking cardio-vascular workouts. The patented bi-directional hydraulic system can be set in eight different positions, enabling people of all abilities to exercise at a pace suitable for them and to progress the difficulty as fitness improves. User-friendly Polysafe seats and handles are designed to stand up to intensive use in an outdoor environment.

Proludic also installed a Calisthenics Rig for users to create bespoke workouts and surfaced the area with a mixture of wet pour and rubber mulch to create an all-weather surface, making it accessible all year round.

Users can download the free Proludic Sports app for instructions on how to use the equipment, track their workouts and set up fitness groups.

Testimonial

“The new outdoor gym is a great addition to the park. We asked residents what they wanted and introducing a wider range of facilities was popular among respondents,” says Councillor Jenny Bokor, lead member for Loughborough.

“The gym means residents and visitors can get some fresh air and a bit of additional exercise and the app can provide some guidance and a bit of motivation. We hope people will enjoy using both.”
