How to Use an Outdoor gym

To use the outdoor gym, you must take into account some factors, such as:

  • Perform muscle stretches before starting the devices;
  • Perform the movements slowly and progressively;
  • Perform 3 sets of 15 repetitions on each device or follow the directions printed on each of them;
  • Maintain good posture in all exercises;
  • Wear appropriate clothing and sneakers;
  • Do not use all devices on the same day, dividing them into different days depending on the availability of the gym;
  • Do not exercise if you feel pain, dizziness, in case of fever or if you feel unwell;
  • Perform the exercises in the morning or late afternoon to escape the strong sun.

The presence of the teacher is important at least in the first days so that he gives the necessary instructions on how to use the devices and how many repetitions must be performed during each exercise. Choosing to perform the exercises without proper monitoring can lead to the development of orthopedic injuries, such as rupture of ligaments, strains and tendonitis that can be avoided through the proper use of the equipment.

Open-air gyms can be found in different parts of the cities and the city must be responsible for placing a physical educator for at least 3 hours a day in each one. They were built especially for seniors, but anyone over 16 years old can use it. Some are located in Curitiba (PR), Pinheads and So Jose dos Campos (SP) and in Copacabana and Duque de Caxias (RJ).
