Outdoor Adult Fitness Parks: Best Practices for Promoting Community Health by Increasing Physical Activity
Our guide on outdoor fitness park design was created in conjunction with three scholars, each with a different fitness focused specialty. Dr Michael Suk, head of orthopedics at Geisinger; Dr Gary Liguori, Dean of the College of Health Sciences at the University of Rhode Island; and Dr Thom MacKenzie, Professor Emeritus, School of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences, San Diego State University review the published research on the unique benefits of outdoor fitness activity, and then illustrate a variety of ways you can engage the community in a well-rounded workout. From planning, to design, to programming and measuring outcomes, this guide is a valuable resource for any community wishing to increase physical fitness in its adult population.
