The Primary Care Network is working with the City of Red Deer and community groups to promote active living. Examples of this are outdoor gyms and community walking clubs.
Our partnership with the City of Red Deer
Four outdoor gyms were installed in public parks around the City of Red Deer in the summer of 2009. The Red Deer Primary Care Network and the City of Red Deer are partners in this initiative. The Primary Care Network provided and installed the gyms, while the City of Red Deer provided the land and will maintain the equipment.
What are Outdoor Gyms?
Outdoor gyms are comprised of 12 double fitness machines selected to give a broad based general workout. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner, or you have an established fitness routine, you can get a great workout here. The best part? The gyms are FREE for everyone to use! A park bench is included at each of the sites to provide a convenient meeting place.
Bring a friend and have fun trying out the double machines!
