The first round of outdoor exercise equipment sites, Fitness Zones®, were completed in 2016. In coordination with new funding partner, Kaiser Permanente, Seattle Parks and Recreation is excited to proceed with a second round of four additional outdoor exercise equipment locations. The installations are incorporated into the following capital improvement projects with construction scheduled to be completed between 2018 and 2022.

Outdoor Fitness Equipment Program Pilot - Spring 2019

The three-month pilot program focused on teaching different fitness methods and pushing the participants' comfort zones to incorporate a high intensity interval training regimen using the outdoor fitness equipment. The pilot was promoted throughout the three communities around Powell Barnett, Georgetown and Van Asselt Parks to encourage residents to participate in the weekend classes. The fitness classes consisted of stretches, sprints, use of the outdoor equipment to conduct upper and lower body movements designed to spike heart rate from start to finish, and provide a full-body workout.

The three photos above were taken during the pilot program and focused on free fitness classes with intent to increase the use and activation of the Outdoor Fitness Equipment located in all three communities.

Seattle Parks and Recreation, The Trust for Public Land, The Seattle Parks Foundation, and MOMentum teamed up to bring free outdoor gyms called Fitness Zone areas to parks in Seattle. Each one is equipped with top quality, durable exercise equipment appropriate for teens and adults of all levels of fitness. Download the public meeting minutes to learn about past public involvement in this project.
