Frome’s Outdoor Gym

The Outdoor Gym

Frome’s Outdoor Gym can be found on the Old Showfield, the largest green space we have in town. It’s tucked away behind Frome Medical Practice and Frome Community Hospital. The gym is there for the whole community to use (and enjoy!) for free!

We know many of you already use the outdoor gym. Dog walkers, runners, Mums, Dads and young people can all be seen enjoying trying it out. Some personal trainers use the gym as part of their outdoor training sessions, no matter what the weather throws at them or their clients!

But we’d love to see more people using the outdoor gym! The gym is designed so anyone can have a go – whether new to exercise or a regular gym user already.

Your chance to try out Frome’s Outdoor Gym…

To help encourage more people to use the outdoor gym equipment in Frome, we have arranged informal drop in sessions at the gym. These start on Monday 4th June and will run for 8 weeks, every Monday at 9.30am. Sessions will last an hour and will be free to join in with. These aren’t personal training sessions, but a qualified instructor will be on hand to show you how to use the equipment.

We need to keep the number of people attending sessions limited so the instructor can give people the time they need to learn to use the outdoor gym equipment.  You can find out more and book your space to try out Frome’s Outdoor Gym here.

These sessions are part of our commitment to support people in Frome to be more physically active. There are other things you can do in Frome if you want to be more active – find out more here.

How to get to Frome’s Outdoor Gym
