The entire concept behind the offering of this fitness equipment park is simply to make exercising accessible. There are no memberships, passwords, special cards, admission prices, or extra requirements. There are no weights to adjust, no extra training, no special tricks to make things work well. All it takes is showing up, reading the instructions on each of the pieces of equipment and giving it a try.
