Outdoor Gym at McCallum Park

Home > Perth > Parks | Health and Fitness
Published August 12th 2012
Why do so many people pay a fortune in gym memberships or fitness classes when there is so much you can do for free?

Perth has so many beautiful city parks with cycle tracks and plenty of space to run or kick a ball around and today I also discovered free gym equipment.

I cycled down to McCallum Park and was surprised to see free to use outdoor gym equipment which I only witnessed two other people use mid-morning on a Saturday - why would you go to a gym when you can go and look over the river while doing your fitness regime. There are four stations altogether - two next to one another and a second set of two stations are a short distance away ,so you could even fit in an additional jog or run between exercises and all the equipment has instructions about correct use.

The facilities include a Stepper, Cross Trainer, Cycle Seat and Rowing machine for cardiovascular exercise and a Butterfly Press, Shoulder Press, Lat Pull- Down and Ab-Hip Swinger for a muscle toning.

There are no weights on the machines but for general fitness and toning they are perfect. No more indoor gyms for me - free outdoor equipment all the way - just need to get myself motivated.

Similar equipment can be found at Hyde Park, Vincent street Perth. Follow the path around the lake and you'll find the equipment.
