We Know You Want to Improve Community Health
When we speak with parks professionals or campus recreation departments, they ask us, “what can I do to encourage adults to be more active outdoors?" When looking for that answer, they often focus on walking paths and open green spaces, rather than outdoor exercise equipment or outdoor workout areas.
We Build Outdoor Fitness Spaces People Love
We can all agree parks and outdoor spaces are essential for improving the physical and mental health of adults and families. That’s why our answer is purposefully-designed outdoor fitness spaces based on best practice research with exercise in mind. This answers the common question of how to get more adults to be active outdoors, and it can increase overall usage of your outdoor recreation areas.

Fitness Options for All Abilities
Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Fitness Park
Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Park is the site of one of the largest outdoor fitness parks in the Los Angeles area. It includes three distinct areas of fitness products: standard (bodyweight and motion products, including accessible/inclusive options), therapeutic (designed specifically for users age 55 and up), and elite (advanced training options for athletes). Each fitness area is installed on color-coded safety surfacing and includes instructional signage. Adults and older teens use the park on a regular basis to achieve their health and wellness goals, and personal trainers routinely schedule bootcamp classes and other group fitness sessions.

Outdoor fitness equipment can motivate non-regular exercisers to start their fitness journey, especially if they already visit the park often. Plus, exercising outside is more fun than indoors, so people are more likely to keep up with their workout routine.
Haverford College is a private liberal arts college in Haverford, Pennsylvania. The college has a long history of promoting student health and wellness, and in recent years, it has made a concerted effort to encourage students to be more active outdoors.
In 2023, the college opened a new outdoor fitness space called THRIVE. The space was designed by GameTime, a leading manufacturer of outdoor fitness equipment. THRIVE features a variety of cardio and strength-training equipment, as well as a shaded area for stretching and relaxing.
The THRIVE outdoor fitness space is open to all Haverford students, faculty, and staff. The space is free to use, and there are no reservations required. THRIVE is located near the college's athletic fields, and it is open from dawn to dusk.
