If you could design a fitness trail with 8-10 fixed stations. What would you choose?

1. Pull Ups Bars
2. Situp Bench
3. Paralelle bars
4. Fixed plyo box/bench
5. Is there such thing as an outdoor Glute/Ham?
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Any ideas?

I have seen and used outdoor GHD, and they HURT. No cushioning. I would also include a rope tower, LOTS of pull up space, and a bar of varying length and height to attach rings. cushioned ground is also nice.

On top of the things you said:

-Rope climb either straight up and down or over a wall
-different height bars to vault over
-rings - the park near me has a 3 sets at different heights, the only drawback is the ring diameter is small (for children)
-Perhaps a slack line or some type of tightrope thing, at the park here they have some balance beam type things.
-cargo net

similar to pu bars, but monkey bars are great fun. there's a cool park in my town where me and my two boys (6 and 8) go climb and swing, pretending we're Spiderman

Maybe part of the plyo box station or not, pushups, with the option to raise feet onto boxes.

How about measured sprint distances?

Matt,

Yes, a park in Reston it's South Lakes Park, it used to have 3 heights of pullup bars also but for some reason they took it out last spring (very dissapointed).

This park currently has (when I was last there before the big freeze in N. VA), a 10-15 foot balance beam thing maybe about 2-3 feet off the ground, it has 2 sets of rings, I thought it was 3, but I think I confused it with the pullup bars, it also has one full size b-ball court, soccer field, baseball field and children's playground. The rings are definitely made for children's hands though.

lol, this is going to be at an elementary school. The PTA is interested in funding a fitness trail around the school for the kids and community...and I get to design it. But I have to be realistic.

Allen, I wish someone would make a few good pull up/dip stations along the WO/D trail.
