Each icon represents a different type of site to get you moving.

Outdoor Gym

Trim Trail

Workout Challenge

Walk

We define an outdoor gym as a public space where a variety of outdoor fitness equipment is installed in one area. Although public, some spaces might have limited opening hours, so always check before you visit.

We define a trim trail as linked outdoor fitness equipment which is spread out further than 100m apart. Most trim trails are spread out much further (the longest on our map is 5km). If there is a defined route, you can view it by clicking on the icon and the total distance is shown in the pop-up window.

A workout challenge can be absoutely anything that doesn’t fit into other categories. It could be a workout that takes less than a minute to complete, a recommendation to explore a fun physical activity resource or it could be a 30 minute workout.. we create some workout challenges using local features to motivate you to explore and get moving!

The walks we promote on the map are published resources from other organisations where you can view and/or print the route information. The location shown on the map is the start point of the walk and the total distance is shown in the pop-up window.

Explore Your Local Open Spaces

Move the Masses – with the help of volunteers – locates outdoor gyms, trim trails and published walking routes, which you can find on our Move Map.

We show people how to exercise outdoors, free of charge and without the need for any additional equipment. We do this by producing short videos to demonstrate a range of exercises for all abilities using the equipment at outdoor gyms.

We also promote other free activities to get you moving and design short, fun workout challenges using local features. Our volunteer Move Champions provide free access to pop-up workouts. These sessions are a great way for people to meet each other in a fun, relaxed environment whilst learning how to exercise using the outdoor gym facilities.

Sessions will restart in summer 2021.

Meanwhile, why not explore the Move Map and log your workouts, or tell us about your local outdoor gym!

Activate Your Space!

We organise, promote and deliver fun, inclusive and professionally run events to get people moving and showcase your outdoor space. Allowing the community to get the very best from the investment in outdoor fitness equipment in your area.
Our sessions and events provide people with quality instruction and guidance, giving them the confidence to use installed outdoor fitness equipment safely and effectively. 

Case Study

Navigation Road Fitness Area, Guildhall Ward, York

We were asked to provide a series of sessions for local residents. The Resident’s Association had been campaigning for 13 years to have an outdoor gym installed but needed guidance on how to use the equipment and instruction on different exercises.

We ran a series of sessions to engage the local residents, giving them the confidence to continue exercising and motivating each other as a group. We produced three videos with a range of exercises for them to use as an ongoing resource.
