sportsequip have supplied and installed countless Fitness Trails and Physical Training (PT) Trails throughout the UK over the last 20 years. Now with the addition of Stretch Stations™ and Stretch and Gym Trails as a result of our two decades of fitness trail experience, we are able to offer tried and tested exercise stations, modern contemporary signage - Exersigns™ and unrivalled specialist knowledge.
All Fitness Trails, PT Trails, Gym Trails™ and Stretch Stations™ are available as supply only, or supplied and fully installed by our professional teams.
Fitness Trail Specialists
Wooden adult outdoor gyms cater for all abilities
Fitness Trails, sometimes known as 'Trim Trails', 'Outdoor Gyms' or 'Parcourse' are typically located in parks, recreation grounds or as part of a countryside walk. Fitness Trails help promote good health and wellbeing by providing a series of workout stations for all ages, allowing users to exercise various parts of the body along the route. Many modern outdoor gyms are metal, whereas Fitness Trails are wooden that blend more comfortably within green spaces and outdoor environments.
Stretch Stations, Gym Trail and Fitness Trail units comply with BSEN16630 (the European Standard for Permanently Installed Outdoor Fitness Equipment).
Physical Training (PT) Trails, often referred to as 'Assault Courses' are commonly used by the Ministry of Defence or for cadet training. Any number of workout stations can be combined to create a unique course to challenge users. As PT Trails offer more demanding exercises than Fitness Trails, they are best suited to supervised locations.
Due to the size or nature of exercise stations within the timber PT Trail range, these generally fall outside of the scope of EN16630 and should only be used at secured sites (MOD and cadet training bases, for example).
Gym Trails™ help users make full use of fixed Fitness Trail or PT Trail equipment stations through a series of illustrated exercise boards - Exersigns™ designed for each station. Combinations of suitable exercises for each piece of equipment can be chosen as required. Gym Trail™ Exersigns™ can also be installed alongside existing Fitness or PT Trails.
Headers and footers on each Gym Trail™ Exersigns™ board can be customised to include things such as logos and sponsor names to allow Trails to be personalised for each environment.
Stretch Stations™ offer a gentler range of exercises, designed for older or less physically capable users. Each Stretch Station™ workout requires no additional fixed equipment, making them suitable for use as standalone features throughout a trail or walking route.
Stretch Station™ Exersigns™ boards can also be combined with Fitness, PT and Gym Trail™ exercise stations to provide warm up and cool down exercises points at the beginning and end of a Trail, or to provide additional depth to a new or existing sportsequip.co.uk Fitness Trail.
As with Gym Trail boards, Stretch Station™ Exersigns™boards can be customised to include logos, sponsor logos or benefactor names.
