Summer is just around the corner, which means the dreaded Bikini season is also upon us. Here lies the dilemma… You want to get in shape and workout but you don’t want to pay for an expensive gym membership that you might not even have time to get to enough in order to get your moneys worth.
I have experienced this problem myself, but now that the weather is starting to warm up and the rain is easing off I have discovered the beauty of Outdoor Fitness Parks. In my opinion exercising and working out out in the fresh air, beats a stuffy, expensive gym any day and this is exactly why I think outdoor fitness parks are the perfect solution to a tight budget.
Most cities and suburbs around Vancouver have these outdoor fitness parks. They have several machines that work just as well as those in a membership gym enabling you to work out your arms, legs, abs, etc. These parks are getting more and more prevalent around Vancouver and I’m sure there are some right near you that you don’t even know about!
There is a really great outdoor fitness centre in Tisdall Park right near the Langara 49th Canada Line Skytrain Station. If you’re looking for a cheap way to bulk up or tone down, I highly recommend this option. All you need to do is jog down to your local fitness park and use the exercise machines in the sun and you have the perfect workout with cardio and weight training. And the cost?…. FREE 🙂 Now that is my kind of workout!

That looks pretty awesome! I haven’t seen a fitness park quite like that before. The ones I’ve been to are usually on a trail with different “stations” about 100 feet apart. So, you go to Station 1 for pullups or something, walk 100 feet for Station 2’s push-ups, then another 100 feet for Station 3, etc. for around 10 different exercises.
Anyway, good call on bringing attention to the subject! It’s great stuff 🙂
Ya I thought this park looks pretty great. I haven’t been to it myself but I think I’m going to check it out on the next nice day. Apparently the machines are air pressured so you can add resistance to the workouts. Pretty Awesome!!
Yeah, it’s amazing what they can do with air pressure!
We should maybe make an INTERNeX Event out of it 🙂
Wow thanks for this post! I didn’t know that existed!
Awesome a free work-out, when do we go?
A great idea for outdoor sports activities and the best – it`s free!!

Thanks for reblogging our post 🙂
It was no problem at all! 🙂
Love this…going to have to look into if they have any here…although I doubt it since it’s always raining.
I’m sure you can find one near you. They seem to be the new thing, plus it’s always raining here in Vancouver and we have them!
