OUTDOOR FITNESS EQUIPMENT
When we speak with parks professionals or campus recreation departments, they ask us, what can I do to encourage adults to be more active outdoors?" When looking for that answer, they often focus on walking paths and open green spaces, rather than outdoor exercise equipment or outdoor workout areas.

Park workout equipment and fitness playgrounds help kids grow their appreciation for exercise by making it fun. Our teen and youth fitness courses combine individual equipment pieces into an interactive challenge course or jungle gym. Our innovative new Champions Trek obstacle course gives kids a full-body workout with equipment that requires strength, balance, coordination, agility and stamina. The stations in this challenge course include the challenging Chaos Climber, the Tapered Tower climber, the Breakaways low-angled platforms, the Sprawl Wall climber and the rock-climbing-inspired Crossway Climbers.
Kids can exercise together, challenge each other to complete exercises in succession or turn their exercise regimen into a game. This equipment is an excellent choice for elementary and middle school physical education departments, school playgrounds, parks and recreation departments, public urban spaces and neighborhoods.
Outdoor fitness equipment makes an excellent office perk that also encourages health and wellness. It lets workers enjoy time outdoors before or after the workday. It also makes it more convenient for busy employees to fit personal health into their schedules. High schools, college campuses and urban public spaces can also incorporate adult fitness equipment to make exercise more accessible.
At Miracle Recreation, our adult exercise equipment features individual exercise stations and combined training systems that offer an entire workout and accommodate several people at once. Our full-sized equipment range includes:
An outdoor fitness area that includes several fitness stations or a group training structure can provide an invigorating workout for the whole body. Dip stations, hyperextension benches, push up bars and body curl benches target the core. Vertical and rope climbers, step-up bars, rowing stations and balance beams work the arms and legs.
Despite the popularity of outdoor fitness equipment (OFE) in public spaces with the aim of increasing physical activity (PA), very little research has been conducted to investigate the effectiveness of the equipment's use, especially for achieving the target fitness goal. This study designed an OFE training protocol incorporating four modalities of PA: endurance (air walker and ski machine), resistance (rowing machine and bonny rider), flexibility (arm stretch and shoulder wheel), and balance exercise (waist twister). Seniors who completed the protocol demonstrated that for endurance training, participants were at moderate intensity from heart rate and perceived exertion, while significantly improving cardiac endurance in the two min step test. For resistance/flexibility/balance interventions, only the handgrip strength test, the 30 s chair stand test, the right-hand shoulder flexion test, the right-hand shoulder horizontal abduction test, the single-leg stance test, and the eyes open foam surface clinical test for sensory balance were significant, using a repeated measure analysis of variance. The results demonstrated that older adults aim for the OFE target for specific fitness goals can reach moderate intensity and improve their cardiorespiratory endurance. Yet, results for resistance/flexibility/balance are inconclusive. More studies are needed to carefully assess the effectiveness of using OFE.
Outdoor fitness equipment (OFE) placed in public parks has the potential to encourage physical activity. However, little is known about OFE users and use patterns. This study employed onsite and video observations of OFE usage to describe user characteristics and patterns in Xihu Park. Results indicate that OFE in this park attracted considerable use, particularly in the early morning and late afternoon. During these peak-hour observations, approximately 12 users per hour used the OFE, with the majority being females and seniors. The triple arm stretch and air walker were the most popular stations. However, most OFE users interacted with less than three of the available six OFE stations. Furthermore, users spent an average of less than nine minutes on all OFE stations combined. While OFE equipment was well-used in this urban park, it appears users did not interact with OFE at rates to produce a sufficient bout or level of physical activity during their park visit. Further investigations of OFE are encouraged to determine their health impact.

Despite the rapid worldwide expansion of parks with outdoor fitness equipment (OFE), no objective data regarding the intensity of activity associated with using OFE are available. Hence, this study quantified the energy expenditure and intensity of physical activity by examining four outdoor fitness devices widely used by older adults and provides objective evidence-based intensity references for the Compendium of Physical Activities. Sixteen older adults (mean age: 70.7 5.6 yr) equipped with a portable metabolic system for measuring energy expenditure and activity intensity completed tasks while walking or using four types of OFE. Descriptive statistics and repeated-measures ANOVA with the Bonferroni post hoc test were employed. The energy expenditure and activity intensity for using an air walker at tempos of 80, 100, and 120 bpm were 50.78 14.76 (2.81 0.85), 59.62 14.23 (3.26 0.82), and 65.62 18.27 (3.55 1.02) cal/kg/min (METs), respectively. The induced energy and intensity output values for a ski machine were 54.00 14.31 (3.02 0.87), 68.87 22.74 (3.82 1.35), and 74.55 23.39 (4.05 1.35) cal/kg/min (METs), at 80, 100, and 120 bpm, respectively. The energy output for a waist twister at 60 bpm was 38.43 20.16 cal/kg/min (2.05 1.15 METs), and that for a double arm stretch at 80 bpm was 31.05 12.58 cal/kg/min (1.63 0.70 METs). These findings indicate that activity on the ski machine and air walker could be considered to have moderate intensity, whereas the intensity of activity on the waist twister and double arm stretch was significantly lower than that for walking at either 3.2 km/h or 4 km/h and could be considered only light intensity. The MET values for the OFE were lower than those for similar indoor fitness equipment. The results of this study provide crucial implications for public health practices concerning the development of active living environments. 041b061a72
