Body weight train­ing equip­ment for Albany field

Grocott's Mail - - MAKANA VOICES -

The Albany Sports Club would like to in­cor­po­rate body­weight ex­er­cise train­ing into its club ac­tiv­i­ties, and the Com­mit­tee has al­lo­cated a cor­ner of the top field for body­weight ex­er­cise struc­tures.

The struc­tures will be built from gum poles as well as con­crete and steel bars (see im­ages). A range of pulling and push­ing ex­er­cises can be done on th­ese struc­tures, which can be com­ple­mented by run­ning around the fields. The Albany fields have a res­i­dent se­cu­rity guard and the struc­tures will be kept safe.

The Club is look­ing for spon­sor­ship for the ma­te­ri­als to build two ex­er­cise sta­tions. The donor’s busi­ness logo will be dis­played on a sign board at­tached to the ex­er­cise sta­tions, which will pro­vide good ad­ver­tis­ing for the spon­sor as lots of dog walk­ers, run­ners and club mem­bers use the fields. Each struc­ture (inset) costs about R600, which in­cludes gum poles, con­crete, sand, stones, steel bars and a board (con­tain­ing the donor’s logo).

If you are will­ing to con­trib­ute to­wards this project please con­tact me at hot­mail.com. Any vol­un­teers who are in­ter­ested in body­weight ex­er­cise and would like to help put the struc­tures in place please let me know too.
