Health Loop Outdoor Gym / Outdoor Gym for Urban Areas

Health Loop Outdoor Gym
Health Loop Outdoor Gym

Health Loop is a rethink of public outdoor gyms. These gyms are well intentioned and a vital missing link in public health, yet are avoided by most people, including those that need them most.

Health Loop is designed differently—it’s surprisingly entertaining, confidence-inspiring, and relevant for the goals and abilities of normal people—all in 5-10 minutes daily.

Quick, fun guidance is provided at every station by a simple display to get people started, and to help with confidence and understanding the equipment is friendly and simple, without visible weights. It's intentionally unsuitable for bodybuilders and athletes, to keep it casual.
