Beginners to elites, builds upper body strength and supports lower body physio exercises

The Parallel Bars may look like a simple and unassuming piece but it's not to be under-estimated. There are dozens of exercises that are possible with this low maintenance star, to build full body strength. 

For the active and super fit, there are full body weight strength moves that can be practised regularly to maintain and build muscle, including dips, knee and leg raises, incline press ups, full body strength holds, traversing and more.

The Parallel Bars are also inclusive for people with a range of health conditions who need regular physiotherapy. This equipment supports a range of lower body balance and strength exercises in parks and open spaces. 

Check out our Lower Parallel Bars, designed specifically for children and people of a smaller stature.
