Outdoor park & gym fitness equipment
It’s no secret that health and fitness levels in Australia have been declining for years. At the same time obesity levels are growing. With our ageing population there’s an increasing need for solutions that enable people to spend more time outdoors and undertake more physical activity.
a_space is passionate about building healthier communities and has spent years developing and refining outdoor gym systems that are inviting, accessible, durable and safe. We support our systems with programs that help individuals of all ages and fitness levels achieve greater wellbeing.
Equipment on its own delivers only part of a fitness solution. a_space outdoor gym equipment incorporates easy to follow instructional signage guiding users through the correct techniques to achieve a great workout.
The signage also incorporates QR codes providing access via smart phones to videos offering further guidance.
Safety is key when placing outdoor gym equipment into public environments. It needs to be safe for the intended use and designed to eliminate the risks associated with potential misuse.

Hobsons Bay City Council received multiple requests from the community to install new Outdoor Fitness Equipment. Cherry Lake, Altona was chosen as an ideal location with its expanse of parkland set beside a significant lake. Council approached a_space to develop a design combining a mix of dynamic and static equipment to suit all ages and abilities.
Council’s brief was to create an innovative outdoor exercise space to engage the local community. The design needed to accommodate an existing tight envelope while offering a variety of items to suit users of different ages and fitness levels. Importantly, the equipment needed to be robust and constructed from appropriate materials to withstand the local coastal conditions.
