Fitness trails have been increasing in popularity over the past five years and can now be spotted across the UK in local parks, exercise retreats and gyms alike.

A fitness or ‘trim trail’ consists of a number of exercise stations in an outdoor location, aimed at encouraging runners and walkers to include apparatus based exercise as part of their regime. The trail can be set beside a pathway, all together in a playground type lay out or set to create an assault course.
