Just pop down to one of our parks and give it a try.”

They offer a good range of exercises, and you don’t need experience or to be in great shape to use them. Many people like the fact they are outdoors which means you can enjoy the fresh air and green space while you exercise.”

Georgie Delaney, Joint Managing Director of the Great Outdoor Gym Company, said: “We were delighted to win the contract to roll-out ten fantastic TGO gyms in Spelthorne. Every gym offers something different, and we are excited to work with Spelthorne to activate their potential.
