The need for more interesting fitness programs for teens is on the rise as activity levels rapidly decline within the age group. 

Between lockdowns, remote learning and social media, it has never been harder to get our teenagers away from the screen and outside. Recent studies have shown that only 7.9% of young Australians aged 13-17 met the daily recommended physical activity guidelines for health and fitness. This startling figure brings to light the gaps in public health where teens are being forgotten. 

Organised fitness programs such as sports and clubs are the most funded form of exercise for this age group. However, only a fraction of young Australians are interested in competitive physical activity and many financial, physical and social barriers often prevent teens from engaging in them at all. This often means that the only other option for young people is indoor gyms, which can be intimidating and unaffordable. Therefore the motivation to exercise at all is at an all-time low, as sedentary lifestyles among teenagers become the new norm.

Therefore, the need for engaging fitness spaces that are accessible, financially viable and fun has been a topic of discourse in recent years. At a_space we believe the solution is simple. We have developed a significant innovation in open space fitness designed to engage teens, youth and young adults in active play through our brand new Park Warrior Obstacle Courses

Park Warrior involves challenging fitness obstacle course elements from the popular Ninja Warrior television series, whilst also remaining safe, fun and suitable for all fitness levels. Most importantly, our courses are designed to be used by multiple participants at once, meaning teens can get their friends together and inspire a whole new generation of warriors!

    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”
