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 arranged informal drop in sessions at the gym. These took place between June – October 2018 and were well received. Sessions lasted 45 minutes and were free to join in with. These aren’t personal training sessions, but a qualified instructor was on hand to show people how to use the equipment. Anyone over the age of 18 was welcome to come along to the sessions.

People were welcome to join more than one session. These sessions aimed to increase people’s confidence to be able to use the outdoor gym by themselves or with a group of friends and we know that for some people they might prefer to come along to an extra session or two to help with this.

We hope to host further sessions in the future – please check this page and our social media pages for information on this.

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.
