The Coolest Out­door Space

FARM FIT­NESS, ES­SEX farm­fit­ness.co.uk

Train­ing out­side is in­her­ently bet­ter, isn’t it? Even com­pared to a well-ap­pointed stu­dio, it just feels a lit­tle more, well, real. PT Tom Kemp agrees. He was in­spired to build his out­door gym after labour­ing on the fam­ily farm and re­al­is­ing that there are more in­ter­est­ing ways to get ripped than by toil­ing on ma­chines. His space in deep­est Es­sex is kit­ted out with rings, ropes, tyres, sledge­ham­mers and prowler sleds, along­side many of the usual ac­cou­trements. Once you have flipped a 350kg trac­tor tyre, the re­cum­bent bike will prob­a­bly lose much of its ap­peal.
