We’re excited to be partnering with The Great Outdoor Gym Company to transform the way Londoners get active in outdoor environments around the capital.
About London Sport and The Great Outdoor Gym Company partnership
London Sport and The Great Outdoor Gym Company (TGO) are working in partnership to offer an affordable and sustainable activation model for Local Authorities in London to develop new outdoor preventative health hubs for London’s residents, workers and visitors, built around TGO‘s hundreds of outdoor gyms already installed in London to enhance the use of the capital’s underutilised outdoor spaces.
About The Great Outdoor Gym Company
TGO is a leading manufacturer and supplier of green and innovative outdoor gym equipment and to date has installed over 1,100 outdoor gyms worldwide. 100% of TGO‘s outdoor gym kit is made in the UK and from recyclable materials. Often TGO gyms are installed in otherwise underused green spaces and help people to be physically active no matter what their age, ability or financial status. TGO gyms can transform open spaces into a family friendly preventative health hub that can be accessed by the whole community.
The Green Movement – sustainable activation
Building on their existing 1,100 gyms, TGO are launching The Green Movement, a smart sustainable activation package for parks that help to empower the community to better look after their own health, as well as generating revenue for parks, charity and local people. As part of this TGO are launching their unique ‘smart energy’ range so when people get active using the equipment, energy is created to charge phones, power lights and even buildings. The ‘smart’ element of this kit can capture the usage data which can then be fed back to the customer via a Bluetooth receiver.
TGO Activate App
To help bring this all together the TGO Activate App is now available on both Android and IOS devices, which enables people to find their closest outdoor gym, log and track their workouts as well as finding local events and classes. The app tracks users activity levels and wellbeing, providing further valuable activity data back to Local Authorities across London.
