Get a Full Body Workout at Fargo's Outdoor Gym

Posted: Updated:

Many people don't even know it's there, or have always wondered what those blue stations in Fargo's Milwaukee Trail Park were. They are part of an outdoor exercise set up, called Health Beat, by the Fargo Park District.

Health Beat is meant to help keep the community active by giving the option to take your workout outdoors. The set up is compiled of six stations:

  1. Cardio stepper
  2. Chest press
  3. Pull up / dip bar
  4. Assisted row / incline pushup
  5. Ab crunch / leg lift
  6. Squat press

Each station is designed to give you a full body workout covering all areas from lower to upper body. Trainers even suggest getting a good cardio exercise or warm up in by jogging or walking to the park.

Courts Plus Trainer, Keith Bennett, says this type of park amenity is not only great for the community but for health and fitness as well. "It gives the other people a chance that don't have memberships or can't make it to any gyms, it gives them a chance to do a full body workout in the outdoors with fresh air in kind of the open environment."

Milwaukee Trail Park is located in South Fargo at 3601 17th Street South, a similar outdoor exercise setup to this one is located on the Grand Forks Greenway.
