A collaboration between the UK’s University of Nottingham and Life Fitness has seen the creation of a new outdoor training space, featuring nine SYNRGY BlueSky training stations across five sites on the University Park campus. The 1.7-mile outdoor Active Trail represents the university’s continuing investment in sport and outdoor functional training and has proved hugely successful.

Samantha Bell-Minogue, assistant director of sport participation at the university, comments: “The Active Trail provides students and staff access to free fitness equipment at a time that’s convenient to them, as well as delivering limitless options and creating an inspirational exercise space. This has resulted in all of our sports clubs and societies having access to an additional training space for their squads, and giving individual athletes another option to train outside of their fixed sport specific sessions.

“Squads including rugby, lacrosse and American football have used the trail as part of their strength and fitness sessions, and our strength and conditioning coach has been using it with elite scholar athletes. University staff from various departments have also participated in scheduled weekly Active Trail sessions. I’m sure this activity will only increase as the days get longer and lighter.”

Fitness trail users reference either placards on the SYNRGY BlueSky stations that clearly outline proper form, or use QR codes to access exercise tutorial videos through the Life Fitness LFconnect mobile app.
