Requirement

Rushmoor Borough Council wanted to improve the fitness facilities within two communities. The Council was looking to create outdoor gym facilities that would be popular with young people in the community, but still easily accessible to users of all ages and abilities - something simple to use, that would provide fast results.

Rushmoor councillors liked the Big Rig and saw the potential for a whole-body workout, strength training and cardio. Popular with young people and adults alike, the Big Rig would be the ideal solution for both parks in the Borough.

Challenge

Both parks, particularly Manor Park, are busy with lots of footfall every day. Precautions were therefore needed to ensure the installation could be completed without causing too much impact on the community and people using the park. Heras fencing was erected to make the area safe, and the installation team, who are experienced in working whilst taking consideration of their surroundings, ensured everyone’s safety throughout the process.

In addition, the area of installation at King George V Park was very sloped. The Council wanted the gym located close to the play park and so after finding the most appropriate location, the installation team needed to grade the area so that the Big Rig could be installed successfully.

Solution

At Manor Park, the Big Rig was sited adjacent to the main path. It was installed with wetpour surfacing, including a wetpour path leading to the main path that runs around the park. This provided a long-lasting aesthetic and effective finish to the gym, as well as easy access all year round.

A Big Rig was installed into King George V Park, with grass tile surfacing which allows the grass to grow through the holes, protecting the ground around the equipment from wear and bald spots.

Both sites were fitted with signage boards, providing instructions for using the equipment safely and circuit training classes for different fitness levels.

Outcome

The two gyms have been incredibly well received by both communities. To celebrate the opening, Fresh Air Fitness hosted a Launch Package, an official opening event run by a personal trainer, where the community saw and tried the various exercises they could do using the Big Rig. This was followed by a series of circuit training classes, open to all, for free, each Saturday morning over 3 months. Working closely with Rushmoor Borough Council, these events were advertised through multiple social platforms and more traditional printed formats, ensuring a great turnout.
