An outdoor gym amongst the beauty of nature
How do you make an activity park with multiple gyms and activity spots accessible for all visitors? At Kypegården in Sweden, they added an outdoor gym near the parking lot to make it extra accessible. It can serve as a final stop after a hike or as the main destination for the outing. The site is used by all visitors and all ages, and the equipment makes it safe and comfortable for people with visual or physical impairments to train as well. Kypegården wanted the activity site to blend in with the surrounding nature. Making it look appealing to visitors, and attracting them with equipment recognisable from the indoors.
This outdoor gym is for everyone in Borås. All ages, genders and functional abilities.

An effective, full-body workout
What makes the outdoor strength training machines easy to use is the adjustability of the weight and the seats, which mimics the techniques recognised from indoor fitness. The handles accommodate different heights, and each machine has appropriate signage to help users understand how to operate the equipment. The site offers users an effective full-body workout, as the 7 machines cover all major muscle groups. The pull down, chest press, horizontal row and shoulder press cover all angles of pushing and pulling for the upper body. The leg press is effective for large muscles in the lower body, and the sit up and lower back bench activates the core and posterior of the user. Used together, you will experience a workout close to what you know from the indoors, but with the added benefits of the sun and fresh air.
