About us

Family is at the heart of what we do. We create inclusive, free fitness spaces in parks so that everyone can benefit from physical activity.

We also want to do things right. This ethos means we have pioneered greener, safer and stronger outdoor gyms than any other. We pioneered safety standards making our outdoor fitness equipment similar to playgrounds as well as inclusivity standards making our outdoor gyms accessible to people with disabilities. We plant trees for every piece we install.

We love innovating and are the leaders in our field. Our innovations include our TGO Energy range, which includes recycling human energy to make green electricity, our energy storage system and TGO Smart gyms that give site owners data on usage. We are now pioneering our virtual activator screens delivering free classes to all our gyms. We are also developing flooring made of marine plastic.

We believe movement is the best form of medicine and can help us all live our best lives. Sustainability starts with ourselves and choosing a healthier lifestyle.

4071 trees planted

Now more than ever, we need to look after our health and protect nature - we believe the two go hand in hand. Since May 2012, TGO has sponsored 4071 trees in the NHS Forest, one tree for every piece of outdoor gym equipment sold. 

To mark NHS Sustainability Day 2020, we planted our latest batch of 700 trees at NHS Forest sites including Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, Bethlem Royal Hospital in South East London, Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor. In spring 2020, some silver birches are being planted in our Movement is Medicine outdoor gym at St Thomas's Hospital in Westminster, as a tribute to TGO's late chairman and great Dad, John Tarrant. 

Our longstanding partnership with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare is one we very much look forward to growing in the 20s.

Serving communities of 7.5 million people

With 1500 TGO gyms installed in the UK and worldwide, we estimate there are 7.5 million people who can access and benefit from a free TGO gym, right on their doorstep. From villages to urban metropolises, hospital grounds to university campuses, large parks to housing estates, our conservative estimate is that an average of 5000 people live, work or study within one kilometre of each TGO gym. And now with TGO Smart, our unique technology that measures TGO gym hits, our ability to measure participation at outdoor gyms is second to none.
