George Adam, MSP for Paisley is urging Buddies to take advantage of ‘outdoor gyms’ like the one at Brodie Park to assist in getting fit this summer.
The outdoor play park was established by Paisley South Vision, a working group set up to improve facilities at Brodie Park in conjunction with Renfrewshire Council and has seen Buddies young and old flock to it since its creation in 2009.
After an intense workout, George said:
“Outdoor gyms like this one are a fantastic way to assist anyone with an interest in fitness and general wellbeing. Most people will be content with jogging, but anyone who fancies spicing up their fitness session should definitely have a go.
“I’ll be taking part in the Paisley 10k this year and the gym will form an important part of my training.
“The gyms are often dubbed ‘Pensioner’s Play-parks’, but I often see people young and old using the facility. It is unsupervised, so do remember to take care, especially if you are new to fitness training.”
The equipment includes a body twister, a skier, a surfer and a sit-up bench.
