Many studies have proven that exercising outdoors brings a range of physical and mental health benefits. Outdoor exercise has been given a new name, ‘green exercise’. Research has found that green exercise leads to increased energy and decreased levels of stress, confusion and depression when compared with indoor exercise.

When our skin is exposed to sunlight, it creates vitamin D3 which is important for bone and joint health. A healthy dose of sun and fresh air builds a stronger immune system and even aids in a better night’s sleep due to increased levels of serotonin.

Unlike costly gym memberships, green exercise is suitable for any age group and is free to the public. All that is required is some weather-friendly workout attire and sunscreen. Other perks include a scenic environment and more space to enjoy your workout in.

Communities around Australia are enjoying the health benefits provided by a_space outdoor gyms.

    We are so thrilled that a_space did our school playground. Blackheath School P&C raised enough money to put in play equipment and a_space were really thoughtful and sensitive to our budget. The design, landscaping, project management and installation team were completely professional and approachable through every stage of the process. The children at Blackheath Public School are absolutely thrilled with their new equipment – the teachers can’t keep them off it.

    “This project was excellent, ran smoothly, was well coordinated and completed ahead of schedule. A new rubber surface, some new equipment and shade installation has given this playground a great face lift and an extended life”
