As the lifestyle diseases are a growing concern, easy access to neighborhood parks with free fitness equipment seems almost too good to be true. Introducing the people to this truly holistic fitness experience are the open air gyms in parks that feature a slew of state-of-the-art exercise equipment. Studies claim that exercising outdoors has additional health benefits which help lower blood pressure and stress levels. Exercise in natural environments was found to be linked to greater feelings of revitalisation, increased energy and positive engagement. Open air gym concept will go a long way in encouraging greater levels of physical activity among all age groups.
The gym is intended for use by adults and is focused on functional fitness. The easy and free accessibility to these open air gyms may even entice the uninitiated residents of the city into leading a healthier lifestyle.
For senior citizens, particularly, the open air gym have helped in expanding their physical outdoor activities.
Doing exercise daily put a great positive impact on the body. Regular workouts whether in gyms or playgrounds can help in the prevention of multiple diseases and also boost up the body’s stamina and release the body stress. The best exercising equipment not only makes you more fit and tough but also makes the exercising regime fun and enjoyable.
We set up an open gym consisting of five stations which can be accessed without a trainer in the PATHANAMTHITTA DISTRICT STADIUM for the public in association with PATHANAMTHITTA MUNICIPALITY & DISTRICT SPORTS COUNCIL. Project was fully funded by JCI PATHANAMTHITTA QUEENS & well wishers. This was a massive community project in the history of our LO. Media coverage and social media posts helped to reach the mass & secure a good PR for the LO in the locality. This was virtually inaugurated by our NATIONAL PRESIDENT JFS ANSHU SARAF in September, 2022 during the Multi Lo Meeting in connection with his official visit to ZONE XXII hosted by JCI PATHANAMTHITTA QUEENS. The foundation stone was unveiled by the Kerala Minister For Health, Smt.VEENA GEORGE. The inauguration of the project and gym was conducted by the municipality chairperson SRI ADV T ZAKIR HUSAIN.
The five stations consisted of the following equipments
1. Double Hand Rotator
2. Combination Of Walker, Twister & Leg Press
3. Pull Up Station Consisting Of Pull Ups, Push Ups, Dips & Core
4. Sit up Station
5. Double Stepper
Malayora Rani gave us an excellent opportunity to reach out to many people and lead them to a healthy lifestyle. To expand our reach, as well as be the first organisation to set up this concept in our District, this project served the best. The traction it gave our project was invaluable. It granted legitimacy to our capacity as a trustworthy resource for the public.
This project raised the level of motivation and engagement of all the people young and the old in terms of physical, mental and social development.
LO took immense effort in providing quality equipments with full facilities to deliver the best GYM for the public.
To make as many people as possible aware of the importance of being fit, upkeep the physical fitness as well as mental wellness was the key objective of the project “MALAYORA RANI”
We recommend to install more such open gyms in various parts of the town where the public can access thereby promoting a healthy lifestyle.
