Are you looking for a great outdoor workout this summer? Check out the adult outdoor play structures. There are 3 structures located around the base: near the base front gate, at the back side of Col J.J. Parr Sports Centre (just across from the youth centre parking lot) and up at the recreational camp ground (top of Martineau hill). These structures make outdoor workouts fun and easy…who doesn’t like monkeying around and getting fit at the same time.

There are several ways you can enjoy these structures:

1. Join the PSP noon hour Fit Mix classes scheduled from 1200-1245 M-F. This class hits the great outdoors often during nice weather with play structure workouts scheduled for August 20th.

2. During unit Physical Training classes.

3. Enjoy your own outdoor workout. There are 3 pre-designated workouts posted at each structure, along with instructional “how to” pictures of various exercises. Try your luck at the Chinook, the Globemaster or the Hornet. Each workout is designed to take about 10 minutes for one round, complete multiples for a longer workout or try all three. Should you wish to sign out a TRX suspension training strap (note TRX’s are being used in the photo above and are part of one of the pre-designed workouts) they are available at the Col J.J. Parr Sports Centre welcome desk.

Winters can be cold and long, get out and get active and enjoy not only the summer but fall and spring as well at the playground for adults, sand not included.
