Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership and our partners in Ballinalack Community Park are delighted to launch a video for the outdoor gym.
The outdoor gym is located in the rear of the park and hosts an impressive 10 pieces of equipment designed for all abilities and fitness levels. This outdoor gym was funded through Sport Irelands Capital funding in 2019 under the Bunninadden Community Sports Hub Initiative.
This collaborative approach to prepare a video between SSRP and the Ballinalack Community Park committee aims to guide you through the correct use of the equipment. SSRP coach Paul Murray talks through how to get on each piece, how to use it and how to dismount the equipment safely. The park hosts some varied pieces to strengthen and increase fitness levels whilst being outdoors which is fantastic for mental wellbeing also and particularly important in these times.
We hope this video will allow more users to access the outdoor gym. Stay tuned for upcoming outdoor gym programmes.
