Apex Park Gym Designs Unveiled
Designs to install a state of the art outdoor gym in Apex Park, Highbridge have been unveiled following a successful tender process.
The outdoor gym costing £30,000 is being funded by RLT 2 and 3 developer contributions held by Sedgemoor District Council. The modern outdoor gym will include a cross trainer, arm pull down, shoulder press, spinning bike, chest press, seated rower, dips and leg raise unit, leg press and sit-up bench, welcome sign and adequate space for warming up/cooling down. The project will also see a new link path created near to the existing play facilities together with the gym equipment installed within.
All of the new gym equipment will feature innovative QR codes which take users to instructional videos when scanned using any smart phone.
Works are expected to commence around 10th October 2016 and take roughly two weeks, subject to weather conditions. All other Apex Park facilities will remain accessible during this time.
A spokesperson for Sedgemoor District Council said ‘We are delighted with the new outdoor gym designs. These fantastic facilities will be free to use and suitable for all ages and abilities. At a time when people are struggling to find money for gym fees or sporting activities this is a great way to get or stay healthy without having to spend a single penny. Sedgemoor District Council would like to thank The Friends of Apex Park and residents for working with us to support this fantastic project. We are planning a personal trainer-led event for the grand opening so look out for further information nearer the time’.
