Green outdoor gyms in Johannesburg



An innovative pilot project aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles is offering residents of Soweto in Johannesburg the opportunity to exercise in a park free of charge.

Green Outdoor Gyms were launched in 2012 in Petrus Molefe Eco-Park and provide world-class equipment in a secure park setting. The equipment can be used by a number of people at a time and is free to the public. The equipment is proving overwhelmingly popular with residents, many of whom might not otherwise have access to gym facilities.

The project is a partnership between Johannesburg City Parks and a young entrepreneur Tim Hogins of Green Outdoor Gyms.
