Hillingdon Council are keen on them – so far they have got 18 in different parks around their borough.
The equipment they have includes:
- Crunch station
- Cross Trainer
- Air skier
- Push up/dip station
- Seated Row
- Pull up bars
- Leg Press
- Seated chest press
- Hip Twister
- Big shoulder wheels
To be honest I have no idea what most of those things are. However it is surely a good idea to encourage people to keep fit – including those who can’t afford a huge sub for gym membership.
There would be a cost involved – although as I have noted before the Council’s £22.7 million public health budget is largely wasted at present on bureaucracy and ineffective gimmicks.
I suppose the other problem is space – perhaps Hillingdon has more room than we do.
What do you think?
Anyway I have asked the Council’s Parks Manager for his comments.
