Outdoor Gym Equipment 1

North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson and Councillor Steve Heyes officially opened the outdoor gym equipment at Brook Park on Saturday 18th March to a group of fitness enthusiasts.

St Andrews Parish Council and Kompan put on the special event, bringing in personal trainers to demonstrate how to use the equipment, along with the 100% free App that provides all users with instructions and suggested workout packages.

Councillor Steve Heyes, Chair of St Andrews Play Parks Committee, recognised the need for a modern gym facility that encouraged outdoor activity and researched options to bring this to the community.

The parish council was impressed with the outdoor gym option provided by Kompan, which brings the indoor gym experience outside, offering a range of equipment specially designed for outdoor use. The gym is accessible for all, including those with special access needs, and can be used by older teenagers, adults, and even our most senior citizens.

Since opening, the gym has received great feedback from experienced gym users and people with accessible needs. There is one user, a gentleman from the local Veterinarians society, who comes and uses the gym at least once a week who said “I have to catch two buses if I want to go to the gym… but now it’s on my doorstep, I think it’s fantastic .. it’s wonderful “

The parish council hopes this new addition will inspire more people to get outdoors and get active.
