Exercise outdoors at our green gyms

If you started 2019 with plans to get more active and improve your wellbeing, well done!

Life can get busy and we don’t always prioritise our own health, but there are loads of year-round activities available in Slough.

There are 22 green gyms across the borough and each is free to use.

The Great Outdoor Gym Company, who installed the green gym equipment for the council, hosts weekly exercise sessions at the Salt Hill Park green gym.

A qualified instructor shows residents how to get the most out of the equipment and gives them a workout from just £5 a month for one session a week.

There is also a free Saturday morning session at 10am, called the Big Community Workout, which is family friendly and open to everyone.

A new free session has also launched in Manor Park.

Georgie Delaney, from The Great Outdoor Gym Company, said: “Help activate Slough by joining our Big Community Workout. It is never too late to start. The Big Community Workout is all about making you feel good. You go at your own pace and there is no pressure.”

To join in these sessions at Salt Hill outdoor gym, or in Manor Park, download the TGO Activate app. Choose ‘Join the gym’ for the membership, or you can just register for the free Big Community Workout.
