In these challenging days, the health of the urban population is very important! Balanced nourishment with outdoor exercise in fresh air contributes to a healthy immune system. Also, the pandemic forced gyms to close or people don’t feel eager to go to the gyms anymore, we have an idea of how to replace these training sessions.
The exclusive Swiss fitness trails are best described as fitness pathways dotted with exercise stations, and they are often found in wooded or greenery areas. The outdoor circuits were credited with bringing exercise to millions of Europeans in the 1970s, before commercial gyms or fitness as we know it existed.
About 1.5 miles in length, the fitness trail in Switzerland has approx. 15 built-in stops for strength, flexibility, and endurance training. A sign at each stop details the exercises and the number of repetitions to be completed. Any necessary equipment, such as bars for pull-ups or benches for planks, is provided and generally made of wood.
Join the panel discussion about the exclusive Swiss fitness trail concept being introduced in Bengaluru – its practicality, impact on public health and fitness programme.
