Flexible to fit all user groups
A very effective form of exercise that combines the best activities of various sports, resulting in diverse and complete training sessions. Over the past decade this has grown to be the most popular fitness activity.
The basic exercises of Cross Training are the same regardless of the participant’s age or fitness level. It focuses on scalable resistance to match the needs and abilities of all users by changing the load and intensity whilst the exercises remain the same. It is based on the established belief that the specific needs of athletes and seniors differ by degree, not kind.
Cross Training exercises are all functional movements that represent the physical activities we do in everyday life, differing only in that they are focused and performed at a higher intensity. Normal daily movement is simply not enough on its own to develop strength and flexibility.
Stuytown Fitness Playgrounds combines new, innovative equipment with the most popular fitness activities to create an exciting outdoor activity space that can motivate and challenge people of all ages and ability levels. The space is designed with four zones, each focusing on a specific activity with either high or low intensity. A 1/12th mile loop surrounding the four zones completes the activity space and provides ample space for walking or running at your own pace. The activities - cross training, cardio, strength training and obstacle course racing - enable people to develop their balance, strength and endurance in a full body workout. The new outdoor fitness space is not just a place where residents can come and work out as individuals, but it also serves as an area for residents to come together as a community with friends and family. A survey was conducted three months after the installation to measure the effectiveness of this new and creative approach for encouraging an active lifestyle. The results received from 6 days of observation and 161 interviews is now available to you for FREE in a 16-page outdoor fitness research paper. >>Go to research
