Using outdoor gym equipment to fulfil your new year resolution

If you want to make sure that you keep your new year’s fitness resolutions this year then you have a big advantage if you have access to outdoor gym equipment. Getting fitter and stronger is going to be at the top of the list of resolutions for many of us this year – and for good reason. If you want to make sure that you don’t find yourself with broken resolutions at the end of January, making good use of outdoor gym equipment can really help.

An accessible, sustainable way to get fit


Gyms can be a great environment for improving your fitness. However, they can also be intimidating, and stifling and may not always be the best fit. A gym membership is also expensive and may simply not be something you can budget for in 2023. That’s why outdoor gym equipment is so useful – it’s free and accessible and you don’t have to queue for machines behind lots of sweaty people. Outdoor gym equipment is incredibly durable and designed to be used in all seasons. It’s also hygienic and sustainable and can be created in any set-up required.

Making your new year resolution stick

There are some clear benefits to using outdoor gym equipment when it comes to making sure you don’t abandon your new year’s resolutions. Especially in a country like the UK when the weather can be changeable it might seem like a rogue choice. However, exercising outdoors – and using outdoor gym equipment – has some real advantages in terms of ensuring that your new year’s resolutions get fulfilled.

Accountability and encouragement

Everyone can use outdoor gym equipment and because it’s free no one is excluded if they’re on a budget. That makes outdoor gym equipment ideal for working out in groups with all the accountability and encouragement that comes with that. If you want to make sure you stick to your fitness resolutions then setting goals with your friends is a simple way to do it.

A natural antidepressant combination

We all tend to have less energy in winter as the days are shorter, the conditions colder and the nights darker and longer. Getting outside to exercise means that you make the most of the natural daylight, expose yourself to plenty of Vitamin D, and this can be especially useful if you’re struggling with something like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Plus, exercise naturally releases endorphins so you have a double hit of emotional wellness when you choose outdoor gym equipment.

Lots of other health benefits

Working out in the fresh air has a generally positive impact on the human body. Whether it’s improving your blood pressure and heart rate or boosting your lung capacity there are lots of ways in which using outdoor gym equipment optimises the effort you put in where fitness is concerned.

If you want to make your new year’s resolution around fitness stick this year then using outdoor gym equipment is a very effective way to do it.
