Digital fitness challenge

Following on from the launch of the Sports Legacy Zone at IoG Saltex in Windsor last September, outdoor playground equipment specialist Proludic is introducing a YouTube and Facebook campaign to help people keep fit.

Those taking part are invited to complete a simple fitness challenge, which they are asked to record and upload to YouTube before submitting a link to their video via the Sports Legacy Zone Facebook page.

The campaign aims to demonstrate the benefits of Proludic's virtual coach proposition to those who manage parks and outdoor play spaces. Olympic medallists Steve Backley and Roger Black have devised an online training programme featuring exercise routines, challenges and group games to be carried out on a range of outdoor play equipment.

Proludic will add QR codes on boards next to the equipment they will install. When scanned on a smartphone, the codes will download a virtual coaching video relevant to that equipment.

The special equipment is expected to start appearing in local parks from April as part of Sports Legacy Zones. It is hoped that there will be 30 such zones across the UK by the end of the year.
