Want to know how to build an outdoor fitness station in your commercial playground?

In this article, we’ll discuss the considerations you should make when designing the perfect outdoor fitness station and how the team at Kidzspace can help.

Things to Consider When Building an Outdoor Fitness Station

There are a few things you need to factor in when designing or building an outdoor fitness station. Here we’ll go through some of the most important:

Age & Abilities

When building an outdoor fitness station, you want to ensure you install equipment for all ages and abilities.

While you might have installed the station initially to cater to a particular age group, it’s better if you have options that appeal to all ages and abilities so it becomes a community that everyone can get involved in. 


Not only do you have to consider where specifically your fitness station is located in relation to any other playground equipment, you also have to think of:

– whether there are amenities such as parking, toilets, showers and drinking fountains near by
– if there is enough space for people to move around comfortably without interrupting others

– if it’s accessible by all potential users and if not, can you install matting or ramps to make it so? 


The equipment you choose is, of course, a major consideration. This is why you need to think of what type of outdoor gym you want to have and the people you will be appealing to.

Will you need only one set of shoulder rotators or does your target audience want more than that? Do you want some mini ski equipment or a horse rider? It’s up to you. 


Potentially more than any other type of equipment, outdoor gym equipment needs a lot of upkeep. Therefore you need to make sure you have the resources in place to facilitate this. You may even have to have a roster or set of rules to ensure everyone is using the equipment fairly and correctly.
