Re: Outdoor "Bootcamp" legal question..

I would ask the insurance company they will find any excuse not to pay out if something happens.

If applicable mention that its a public park and the public has access to it.

Go for STI gears as well.

If you have a mobile phone/PC in your gym you can use the Tabata Timer which was posted in a thread a few days ago.
