People of Hounslow, you now have even more reason to get outdoors! From today, you can collect BetterPoints at all ten of the borough's new outdoor gyms, getting healthier and gathering reward points as you do so!
The new facilities have been installed by The Great Outdoor Gym Company, which has been successful in helping inactive people improve their physical activity.
Chris Bristow, Chief Operating Offer of BetterPoints Ltd, is delighted with the partnership:
'This is great news for local people who want a little encouragement to improve their health and wellbeing. I'm delighted that London Borough of Hounslow is showing such innovation in its approach to public health.
'BetterPoints are proven to increase participation in healthy activity and it's great to see councils such as Hounslow using them to improve people's lives.'
Councillor Corinna Smart, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Leisure on Hounslow Council, said: 'It is great to see this new outdoor gym equipment in full use and being enjoyed.
'People also come along to their local parks and open spaces to use outdoor gyms and do exercise at their own levels and in their own time, increasing the opportunities to have healthier lifestyles.'
The project, part of a wider initiative, is led by Hounslow council in partnership with Fusion Lifestyle and Carillion Services, who manage the borough’s parks and open spaces for the council.
