Gym with a view


Cardio fitness a little sluggish after winter? Need to get moving in the great outdoors? Now is a good time to tone up for summer and many parks around Brisbane seem to have an outdoor gym. They're heaps of fun, and best of all - free.

Breathe in all that oxygen while you work out


I like the idea of pumping iron and being in the fresh air and sunlight, so the outdoor gym is quite appealing. The equipment is usually clearly labelled and informs you which muscles are getting a work out.

Each exercise has detailed signage


How about this rowing machine with a view?

Row, row row your boat...


Mitchelton Outdoor Gym looks onto Kedron Brook and has plenty of parking and bike track access. There are 8 separate exercise stations such as a cross trainer, stepper, rowing machine, butterfly press, shoulder press, easy rider, cycle seat and ab-hip swinger. With each exercise station working on different parts of the body - abdominals, quads, hamstrings, lower back, triceps, laterals etc.
