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. We will be holding these in September and October 2018. Sessions last 45 minutes and are free to join in with. These aren’t personal training sessions, but a qualified instructor will be on hand to show people how to use the equipment. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to come along to the sessions. You can see the dates of sessions and how to book on to them below.

We will be running sessions at various times:

Monday mornings, 9.30am – 10.15am:

  • 1st October 2018
  • 15th October 2018
  • 29th October 2018

You can book to join a Monday morning session here.

Tuesday evenings, 6.00pm – 6.45pm

  • 18th September 2018
  • 2nd October 2018 (Fully booked)

You can book to join a Tuesday evening session here.

You are more than welcome to join more than one session. These sessions are about increasing your confidence to be able to use the outdoor gym by yourself 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 also hope to be able to host some sessions at the weekends eventually too.

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.
