StreetGym® is a form of urban circuit training, where we turn architectural features, street furniture and gradients into bodyweight-based workstations. We typically identify a circular route of between 1.5 and 2 miles. Along the way we’ll stop to perform exercises at various iconic and cool places before running on to the next spot.
Founded by John Allison, an Army veteran with 24 years of service, StreetGym is all about teamwork, improvisation and overcoming obstacles in your path. StreetGym® is not only about physical fitness; firstly, it’s about improving your mental health. If you work in an office under artificial light all day, it’s highly beneficial to get outdoors in natural light. It’s also about stimulating the mind; we take you on an urban adventure – running, jumping, crawling and weaving your way around the back streets and little known parts of the city.
Because we’re constantly on the move, the senses are bombarded with welcome distractions that take you away from any stress you may have. It puts you in the now and improves your frame of mind.
