NOORD fitness equipment featured at Tom Lee Park

The installation of NOORD fitness equipment at Tom Lee Park not only promotes exercise and wellness but also enhances the park’s overall appeal and functionality. Tom Lee Park, located along the Mississippi River in Memphis, Tennessee, is a popular outdoor destination known for its scenic views and recreational opportunities.

With the addition of diverse outdoor activities and improvements within Tom Lee Park, such as the introduction of NOORD fitness equipment, the park is set to become an even more appealing and stimulating destination. 

Historical public area with Fitness equipment

Tom Lee Park is a public park located along the Memphis River, Tennessee. It’s named after Tom Lee, a local African-American man who rescued 32 people from a sinking steamboat in 1925. It is therefore a great honor to have NOORD fitness equipment at this historical space. Throughout the years, Tom Lee Park improved its space and activities, offering expansive green spaces suitable for picnics, sports activities, or simply relaxing outdoors.

Tom Lee Park serves as a common area for community gatherings, hosting various events and festivals throughout the year. From music festivals to cultural celebrations, the park plays a pivotal role in fostering community spirit and providing memorable experiences for residents and tourists. The addition of NOORD fitness equipment further enriches the park’s offerings, encouraging individuals of all ages to embrace an active lifestyle while appreciating the park’s historical significance and natural beauty.

Tom Lee Park fitness area

While the park is known primarily for its green spaces and event facilities, the fitness area provides an opportunity for visitors to engage in outdoor exercise. The fitness area is situated within the park’s expansive green spaces, providing a refreshing outdoor environment for physical activity. The scenic views of the Mississippi River and the park surroundings add to the appeal of exercising outdoors. Like other Facilities in Tom Lee Park, the fitness area is free to use and accessible to park visitors of all ages and fitness levels. It’s a welcoming space for individuals and families looking to stay active while enjoying the park’s natural beauty.

NOORD providing excellent equipment

NOORD’s products are powder coated outdoor fitness equipment, which is weatherproof and has no moving parts, i.e., there are no screws, bolts or anything else that can be removed from the equipment and used for vandalism. The equipment can therefore be used by people of all ages and training levels. They are ideal for children and youth as part of a fun and challenging workout.

Like all exercise equipment in NOORD’s Spirer series, the equipment supplied for this project is designed to create an aesthetic and functional exercise area in residential areas, school playgrounds and public parks. The equipment is ideal for public spaces and is designed for training with your own body weight, minimizing the risk of overuse injuries. These stations may include pull-up bars, parallel bars for dips, sit-up benches, and other equipment aimed at working different muscle groups.

Colleges and universities demand outdoor fitness equipment

At colleges and universities in Denmark as well as in the rest of the world, we also see an increasing demand for areas with outdoor fitness equipment. At Roskilde Gymnasium in Denmark, the school has chosen to create an area with outdoor fitness equipment near the school’s hall and playing fields, so that during the summer months it is possible to incorporate the equipment into the sports lessons. 

The area is beautifully situated between pines and bushes, which frame the area in the finest way. Underneath the equipment, the school has chosen a rubber surface with its own logo as fall protection. The school’s area with outdoor fitness equipment consists of push-up bars, parallel bars, jump boxes in different heights and bars for triceps extensions.

 

Why schools and educational institutions should focus on movement

We are proud to present our range of outdoor equipment tailored towards schools and public institutions. By combining learning with movement, we can create a dynamic learning environment that not only benefits individual students and participants, but also strengthens the entire community.
 
By incorporating movement into teaching, it is possible to engage students in a more active and practical way. Studies show that movement based learning improves comprehension, memory and problem solving skills.
 
Short breaks for physical activity can also improve students’ concentration and attention. Providing equipment for outdoor play and movement can create opportunities for these important breaks during the school day.
