Outdoor fitness with Wicksteed

January 7, 2020

As we begin the new year many of us want to take steps to improve our health and wellbeing. This normally involves making changes to our diet and improving fitness at a local gym. Regardless of age or ability, regular exercise is vital for all.  Gym memberships can prove costly and although many of us start with good intentions all too often we stop going but continue to pay an expensive membership fee. Why not kick off your new year fitness plan for free and in the fresh air at your local outdoor gym instead?

Outdoor Gyms

Outdoor fitness zones are becoming more commonplace throughout the country and you’re never too far away from a dedicated Wicksteed FLZ outdoor gym. Locations of all of our outdoor gyms can be found here. Our outdoor gyms work in conjunction with the dedicated Wicksteed FIT app which allows you to keep track of your progress and build up points to add an element of competition with friends and family.

Wicksteed Outdoor Fitness Range

The Wicksteed Fitness Legacy Zone range of outdoor fitness equipment is made up of over 25 separate pieces of equipment each one specifically designed to work different areas of the body. Resistance is provided by a users body weight and is suitable for beginners right through to experienced athletes.
