The Move Map
Move Map: Quick Guide
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
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!
