Use the outdoor gym in Mile End Park

At the Northern end of Mile End Park is a free outdoor gym, opened in autumn 2008 by Olympic Gold Medallist Christine Ohuruogu, and supported by Adidas who are one of the sponsors of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The zone has a traversing wall, kickwall, basketball goal, tennis wall and freestyle area for gymnastics, judo, aerobics, dance and taekwondo, and it is hoped that the zones will break down the barriers that prevent people from getting active making sport participation accessible, and it is one of five such zones.

Equipment includes a fitness bike, a chest press, a cross trainer, an abdominal bench, a ski machine and a treadmill, and it's free.

  1. Is that what it is?? I did wonder :)

  2. It is indeed. I hasten to add that I have visited, but not quite got round to using it yet. There were loads of keen-os around when I was last there.

  3. I tried it out a couple of weeks ago, it was great fun :)
    Though I have to say my mate and I were scared off by a group of intimidating 15 year olds!
