Context

After the community around Datchet Recreation Ground raised money for a new outdoor gym, project ‘Green Gym’ went through a rigorous tender process.

Fresh Air Fitness were invited to visit the site and proposed 2 design options for the new gym. The bid needed to include everything from equipment, surfacing, delivery, ground works, installation and any other ancillary items. Fresh Air Fitness were able to show how the proposed budget would be met while fulfilling all requirements with no hidden extras.

Datchet Parish Council opted for the design that included the popular Big Rig amongst other equipment, in order to create a gym that would be used by all ages and abilities.

Challenge

Although the park was substantial in size, the area allocated to the gym was in a much smaller area and in a slightly awkward shape. The Gym had to sit within a restricted triangular area because of underground electricity supply, a MUGA games area that was already installed on site and because the fair and circus use the remainder of the area. The budget needed to incorporate everything, including ground works, rubber mulch surfacing, equipment and substantial signage. The gym also needed to incorporate equipment suitable for wheelchair users.

Solution

The selected design included the Big Rig, a multi-functional outdoor gym, a dedicated disabled piece, Disabled Arm & Pedal Bike and 3 pieces of cardio equipment: Elliptical Cross Trainer, Bike, and Self Weighted Rower. All were installed into a rubber mulch surface. The solution provided 20 user stations in all, allowing up to 20 people to use the gym at the same time. In order to support the installation and maximise usage of the equipment, Fresh Air Fitness also provided a significant amount of support, including additional signage and introductory fitness glasses led by a qualified instructor.

Outcome

The new ‘Green Gym’ has been very well received by the parish. The community can be found using the equipment regularly, personal trainers hold sessions with clients using the Rig. People of all ages and abilities, including teenagers, are able to use the gym equipment, a positive use of their energy and free time.
