I am a person who enjoys nature and movement. I would rather be outdoors than inside doing different types of sports. Here’s couple of reasons I think outdoor gyms are the best; It’s quick (warm-up, exercise, cool down all in one!), I’ll get fresh air, I’ll get a little different workout than normally (using bodyweight exercises) and if I’m lucky I might get a shower on my way back home.
Fortunately, there are many outdoor gyms in Tampere. Ratina’s outdoor gym is centrally located in central Tampere, easy to find and have room for pumping iron, stretching, but also the opportunity to play football for example.
The nice artificial grass and paintings on the bridge wall brings comfort to the gym. The rain won’t bother you either, as this outdoor gym is located under the bridge. If you like to exercise in the evenings, you can also get some great sunset pictures here while exercising.
