During our busy summer period we installed an outdoor fitness area for Lavendon Parish Council, which provides 7 new items of free to use fitness equipment.

The items will provide a full body workout for a wide range of abilities and ages, from the Air Strider and the DDA friendly Arm & Leg Strengthener to the more challenging Multi-Traction (for leg lifts and chin ups).

Tockwith Fighting Fit

Six items of Fitness Equipment have recently been installed in the North Yorkshire village of Tockwith, offering users the chance to socilise and be active at the same time.

Included within the project are two DDA Friendly items of fitness: The SDD122s Tai Chi Spinner and the SDD306s Leg & Arm Strengthener.

Rainbow Lane Fit For All

A fantastic new outdoor fitness area is now open and ready for use at the Rainbow Lane play area in the North Yorkshire town of Malton.

Streetscape were asked to replace an old and tired wooden fitness trail that had recently failed an inspection report. A total of 7 items of outdoor fitness equipment were installed which provides up to 13 people a total of 10 different exercises.

Also included in the project is the Warrior POD 2, designed to cater for body weight training and increasing flexibility and strength.
Perfect for group workouts such as circuit training or boot camps, our Warrior PODs offer something for everyone. The Warrior POD 2 also includes areas for suspension training, a form of resistance training that includes multiple bodyweight exercises.

To complete the project a set of hurdles and leap frog posts were included to create the perfect fitness area for both residents and visitors to Malton.

Redbourn’s New Outdoor Gym!

Redbourn Parish Council identified a need for a new Outdoor Gym area and following consultation with the local running club, Stephens Way was chosen as the ideal location.

Following a successful funding application the project went ahead with funds to help provide 5 different items of outdoor fitness. The equipment was positioned in a visible location, to encourage locals to workout in the fresh air with the 5 different items offering 9 different exercises for up to 9 people at any one time, providing a gentle workout combining different challenges for upper and lower body conditioning.

As Stephens Way Recreation Ground is on a hill, the low impact element of the outdoor fitness equipment means the Redbourn runners should still be able to conserve enough energy to run up the hill!

Fitness for Burley

Three items of Fitness Equipment have recently been installed at Grange Park in Burley In Wharfedale.

The three items compliment the recently completed play area, offering users the chance to socilise and be active at the same time.

Included within the project is the SDD122s Tai Chi Spinners, suitable for two users and an Inclusive fitness item.

Burton Calisthenics Club

Founded in 2015, Burton Calisthenics Club approached East Staffordshire Borough Council with an idea to provide a Calisthenics Training Frame for both it’s members and the community. Following the presentation of an idea to the Neighborhood Forum, companies were invited to tender for the project with Streetscape being the successful bidder.

The aim of Burton Calisthenics Club is to encourage people lead more healthy and active lives through exercise and good nutrition. One of the reasons it’s been accepted is that project meets the priority of East Staffordshire Borough Council which is protecting and strengthening communities and also East Staffordshire is part of Healthy Cities network and promoting healthy activities is an important element of that. Engaging healthy activities in communities creates more motivation, encourages people to engage in a challenge, take interest in other sports, improves socializing and discourages from bad habits and unhealthy addictions. Each individual’s physical activity and balanced nutrition is very important part in creating strong and happy society.

With help from various funding sources such as Tesco’s Bags of Help, and multiple fund raising and awareness events through local organisations such as Dads4dads and Harvey’s Girls, the bespoke design Calisthenics unit was successfully installed with an Open Day held to thank all those involved to make the project a success.

Burton Calisthenics Club now have a membership of over 40 members from 7 different countries and regularly organise events such as organised pull up challenges and group exercise classes.
