FitOut® fitness parks

Fitness & Health
According to Wikipedia there have been fitness parks available in China since the 90's. The first facility of this type opened in Germany in 1999. In Switzerland, a pilot project was launched in the canton of Baselland in 2010. Four selected municipalities were assisted in the purchase of equipment with funds from the Swisslos Sports Fund.

Keeping fit is natural for many people and they have a lot of fun doing it. Others are not excited about exercising out in the woods. They'd prefer to feel animated to do it in town. In a fitness park you can find all your daily fitness programs in one place, which is constantly open. You can practice, agility, balance, strength, endurance and coordination independently and in freedom.
 
Who are fitness parks intended for?
The offer is aimed at people who want to exercise outdoors with the help of devices. A location close to a living environment offers access to all, regardless of age and physical performance level. Our offer also includes devices that are suitable for wheelchair users. In order to fulfill the aspect of health promotion, a training session of at least 30 minutes is recommended every second or third day. Children under 14 should use the equipment under the supervision of parents.
 
Why a fitness park?
A healthy lifestyle includes a good dose of exercise, a healthy diet, and social integration with society. A motion park offers the chance to meet people in sports and physical activities and to avoid social isolation. Those who live an active and independent life and can participate in social activities will probably also be healthier physically and spiritually.
 
Exercise protects against disease and impairments
Sports and exercise are the best medicine. In fitness parks several positive factors come together: Physical activity, fresh air and mutual cooperation. Just getting to the devices can be motivating. The circulation gains momentum and the muscles warm up.
Physical activity slows down the biological aging and degradation processes and protects against loss of functions, for example in the ability to walk, the increased risk of falls or the reduction of mental performance.
Physical activity also has a protective function against many chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and depression. It has a positive effect on the immune system and the psychological well-being.

Maintenance Agreement: As part of a maintenance contract, we will visit your fitness park four times a year to check the devices for possible defects due to external influences.

A few tips:

•    Ideally, a fitness park is combined with benches to rest and watch, restrooms, water fountains, shade and sun spots.
•    Being next to a playground for toddlers can have a complementary effect, so that entire families can use the park closing the generation gap.
•    Ideal locations are green areas and being at least 50 meters away from busy roads.
