Lifestyle coaches at ABL Health will be offering taster sessions at a new outdoor gym in Farington Park, South Ribble.
Members of Farington Parish Council and South Ribble Borough Council braved the cold, wet, windy conditions to unveil the equipment, which includes an exercise bike and a cross trainer typically found in expensive subscription gyms.
Funded by Farington Parish Council and Farington Community Fund, the gym comprises of six machines designed to get people active and increase the park’s usage among residents.
And focusing on the more practical matters, the Central My Neighbourhood Team at South Ribble Borough Council worked hard staging the consultation with residents and then providing engineers and neighbourhood officers to oversee design and installation.
The scheme is a great example of partnership working between the parish and borough council – as well as ABL Health who also helped to design the gym.
