More than ever, the lockdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of outdoor spaces for everyone.
Research conducted by Sport England during the lockdown found that 63% of people have turned to outdoor activities during the crisis saying that it is important for their physical and mental health. Similarly, outdoor gyms have seen a rise in popularity since the ease in restrictions have allowed them to reopen. As well as being highly beneficial for mental well-being, they are a fantastic way to tackle inactivity and obesity by providing free, accessible fitness solutions for everyone.
Since its launch in 2016 the Proludic Urbanix range has been a unique and innovative solution to outdoor gyms due to the patented hydraulic piston varying the intensity of the workout. The option to change the resistance from one to eight (5-60kg), means that users can select the intensity for their workout to use suit their ability and fitness goals regardless of their experience in using gym equipment. Traditionally outdoor gym equipment tends not to have an adjustable feature which means that users have been unable to progress in building muscle as the movement of the equipment relied only on the user’s body weight. The adaptable and progressive workout solution provided by Proludic Urbanix means that the equipment can be used by anyone (over the age of 14) irrespective of their fitness ability, gender, size, or weight and still benefit. The range also has a SafeShock suspension to give a smooth moving motion for clean repetitions.
The latest additions to the Proludic Urbanix range now includes a recharge feature on selected pieces of equipment via a USB port. As users progress through their workout, they can charge devices with the electrical energy they generate and keep their smart devices topped up!
To assist the user with their workouts, Proludic developed the Proludic Sport app which serves as the perfect digital workout partner. Firstly, the app assists users in finding the closet gym to their home location. With over 200 sites now in operation nationally, why not find one near you! The app also provides demonstration videos to learn about the equipment and track previous workouts. It allows users to create personalised workouts tailored to their needs i.e. time, muscle group and fitness goals. Users can also connect with their community, interact with friends, earn achievements, and challenge others. The Proludic Sport app is free to download on Android and iOS devices.
