Proludic partnered with Knowsley Council to produce 15 sites under the green gyms initiative. These were opened this year and have been hugely successful.
"‹Proludic have used their extensive product range and knowledge to design 15 unique and impressive sites which will cater for the whole community (from younger children, to families and senior citizens, personal trainers and fitness fanatics and finally to people just wanting to have a go and get fitter at their own pace).
The Proludic Urbanix equipment has predominantly been used across most of the sites. Proludic Urbanix is the market leading outdoor equipment range which relies on a hydraulic piston to offer users 8 different levels of resistance. This is in stark contrast to other outdoor equipment which solely relies on user's body weight.
To go alongside the Proludic Urbanix, we have also installedtimber and metal trim trails, a social fitness zone (SFZ), Vitality outdoor equipment and Origin which is a robinia wood multi play range. As additional added value we also helped Knowsley set up an orienteering trail.
Since the official opening a month ago the Council has worked hard to promote the green gyms initiative and have had a fantastic response. Promoting free and accessible equipment in the borough and running classes on them really has made the community warm to them and use these fantastic facilities.
We love how the sites have been used by Knowsley and think they have done a wonderful job of sharing the good practice. They have even produced their own video showing how the green gyms are being used which is a perfect example of what can be achieved.
