New free fitness trail in Braintree, John Ray Park

Braintree District Council has now replaced the old fitness trail at John Ray Park. 

Outdoor gyms are very similar to normal indoor gyms except the equipment is much simpler to use, they are suitable for eight years and above and you gain the added benefit of exercising in the fresh air.

There are no sign up fees and they are a great way to:

  • Conveniently achieve the recommended 30 minutes of daily activity
  • Meet new people
  • Build confidence.

The following equipment is available for cardio or resistance training at John Ray fitness trail in Braintree (behind Braintree train station and near the allotments):

  • tyres
  • overhead rings
  • balancing beams
  • pull up stations
  • sloping stride jumps
  • spring boards
  • parallel dip bars
  • freestyle area

What does the trail look like?
