Spring has officially arrived and it's the perfect time to get fit outdoors.
The BBC recently featured a story on outdoor gym equipment being produced in South Africa, which it says is transforming fitness by bringing gym to the masses.
702's Lee Kasumba speaks to journalist and producer David "Mr Active" Katz, who is excited about this growing trend.
It's fantastic - often going to a gym can be quite an expensive experience... This gives people an opportunity to use equipment in a public space and it doesn't cost them anything.— David "Mr Active" Katz, Journalist and producer
He says because the equipment provided is usually for body weight exercise and outdoor gyms are also often close to play parks, it's perfect for people who want to train with their children.
Children shouldn't, until they at least hit puberty and a little bit after, be using heavy weights.— David "Mr Active" Katz, Journalist and producer
And it doesn't just need to be just the equipment and the strength training, between exercises you can do some cardio - do a few laps around the area or sprint between trees.— David "Mr Active" Katz, Journalist and producer
It's also a way for the whole family to get outdoors and cut down on their screen time.
