New outdoor gym offers free fitness

Alfreton gym-goers who also love the great outdoors can now combine their two passions, with the opening of an outdoor gym on the Alfreton Welfare Recreation Ground – installed by Amber Valley Borough Council.

Alfreton Town Council were awarded £5,000 from Derbyshire County Council’s Public Health Locality Funding to install the gym. To add a little more variety to the gym the Town Council added a further £1,500 to add a cycle. A total of six pieces of equipment are suitable for adults of any ability and are free of charge to use.

Amber Valley Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Councillor David Wilson said: “This project shows how working together we can make improvements for local residents. Amber Valley Borough Council is committed to improving our parks and open spaces, and this is a great way of improving people’s health at the same time.”

The gym can be used for a quick session on the way to the shops or while walking the dog, or for a full workout.
