13 July 2019 - The Municipality of Budva, with the initiation of the Secretariat for Utilities and Housing Services, has built yet another gym in the open air in Petrovac, a coastal town in Montenegro, located within Budva Municipality.
Over the past few weeks, the contractor has conducted preparations for the training ground. Assistant Secretary from the Secretariat for Municipal Housing Affairs, Aleksandar Popović, said that the local government representatives are paying special attention that the devices they installed for the outdoor gyms are of the highest possible quality.
Citizens of Budva actively use the first outdoor gyms, located in the nearby city’s swimming pool in the hotel resort Slovenska beach.
"The gym is used every day, especially when there are favourable weather conditions. The equipment can be used for a variety of exercises and is excellent for maintaining fitness and good health. It is made in America and Denmark, and each part of the devices is made of aluminium and special types of inox, which is resistant to seawater and does not require special maintenance," said Popović for RTV Budva.
With this, the Municipality Budva continued to renovate the city and sports fields, and one of the goals is to include as many fellow citizens as possible in various sports activities, concluded the Assistant Secretary from the Secretariat for Communal Housing Affairs.
Just five minutes of an outdoor workout, park or forest exercises can greatly improve your health and mood, according to researchers from England, and even if there is a water surface such as a river or lake in that area, then it makes a really good combination.
Saturated by gyms with stifling rooms and sweat odors, people designed and popularized the subculture of exercise in parks, playgrounds and other open spaces. Today, this is practiced throughout the world and called "street workout". The street workout is a physical activity performed mostly in outdoor parks or public facilities. It is a modern name for bodyweight workouts in outdoor parks. Street workout teams and organized competitions exist.
