Outside gyms in Glasgow?

I posted on Facebook tonight that I’ve suspended my gym membership with Glasgow Life in favour of working out at home with my new weights and running on the streets…

I’ve suspended it for 6 months as I’m not using it… and it’s a waste.

….then one of my readers Debs, mentioned the new outdoor gyms in Glasgow Parks.

I’ve seen them now in Bellahouston and Kelvingrove and I’ve been brought back to when we were on holiday in Lanzarote in 2010.

A whole three years ago, these Adult outdoor gyms were frequently found along the seafront in Lanzarote.

See more info here on the BBC website. The Rise of Adult Outdoor Gyms: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17818223

‘ Outdoor gyms – or adult playgrounds – have been growing in popularity in recent years. The Great Outdoor Gym Company (GOGC) was one of the earliest companies to specialise in providing the equipment in the UK. Launching in 2007, they drew inspiration from the Chinese government which was installing outdoor gym equipment in parks.’

I’ve not tried the ones in Glasgow yet, but Debs says:

‘ Take a wee run down and use the new gym in the park. The only downside is you can’t add weights, only increase reps but for something free I can’t knock it’

Have you tried Adult Outdoor Gyms?

If so, what did you think of them?

Last pic of me here… Este Terrible! ;-P

Have a good night – I’m off to eat my dinner after a long day fasting…then I’m going to build some more furniture!
