Why pay for a gym membership...

... when you can keep fit on these outdoor gym machines?

We found these up a hill in Kemer, the little town near my dad's place in Turkey. I'd definitely go to the gym more often if it had views like these! (Though probably only on nice, sunny days... I think I can see why this makes more sense in Turkey than England.)

There are some nearer to home than that! Just 5-10 mins walk from my home there are a few of these 'machines' out on Dyche Lane here in Sheffield. Next time you come to see your supervisor, jump on the bus down here and have a go!!!=)

That would definitely be more fun in Turkey with some sunshine. We have some down here in Dulwich park, however, with the surroundings mainly ending up very muddy and the view not quite this great - well, they're not very motivating ;-)

Tips for Pinterst: Hmmm... I don't think I actually have any. Keep an eye on your watch since it's remarkable how quick time passes when you're on there ;-) If you follow somebody, check out who they follow as you might then discover more things you like. Other than that: just enjoy! Sorry, not much help, but I simply pin away all the stuff I like xo

Playgrounds for adults - I love 'em! (Not for myself, of course, but to make art from the use others make of them.)

We saw that kind of equipment in outdoor parks China. It was so interesting to me.

It's amazing what you find when you're not looking for them, isn't it! Neat! Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day! :)

There are some near the beach in Crosby as well, but as it was blowing half a gale the last time I was there, I couldn't for the life of me imagine using them!

Is that your Poppa? He looks like such a sweet man! How neat :)
