Cllr Adrian Edwards, Leader of the Council, said, “This new gym equipment has been installed next to the children’s play area, so parents can keep fit whilst their children play. Keeping fit is important and we hope that this facility proves popular with local residents”.
The equipment supplied by Proludic and installed by Star Rubber is the latest innovation of gym equipment, with hydraulic pistons and top calibre features for a real gym-like feel. The power resistant 8 position pistons can be easily adjusted to increase/decrease tension to suit your workout routine. Clear and simple instructional videos are accessible via QR codes attached to the equipment, through your smart phone.
This installation, which cost £13,412 in total is part of a larger refurbishment, replacement and new equipment programme which will be funded from CIL monies (developer contributions). It is hoped that further improvements to the Council’s play areas can continue next year and will ensure our play areas are maintained to a high standard as new and more challenging equipment becomes available.
The range consists of the following items, offering cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, balance, and coordination, strengthening and toning, progressive circuits and stretching:
