A gym in Kilburn Grange Park is set to open next month, and funded by Camden Primary Care Trust (PCT) is aimed at increasing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get fit and stay healthy.
Cllr Flick Rea, Camden Council's executive member for culture, said: "We're always looking for new ways to offer free and affordable exercise so we can encourage more people to get fit and stay healthy. Outdoor gyms have been extremely successful elsewhere and are an excellent alternative for those who are put off by the thought of going to the gym or can't afford the membership. I hope everyone visits one of the demonstration days and tells us what they think about them."

Boasting no joining or membership fees and a zero carbon footprint once installed, the gym offers people a new, easy and free way of exercising in their local park or housing estate.
It will include much of the equipment found in indoor gyms, such as treadmills, cross-trainers and weights, but specifically designed for safe outdoor use.
