Outdoor Park in Malmo, Sweden


When I travel, I enjoy looking for places to do my workouts. Sometimes I will do my P90X workout in the room that I am staying in for a few days, sometimes I will go to a hotel gym, and sometimes I will go to a local gym and suck it up and pay a day pass fee. But when there is a FREE outdoor park that provides an outdoor gym, then that is what I prefer the most.

I stumbled on this place in Malmo while I was biking and exploring the city. It's called Pildademmsparken, and the park in general is huge. If I didn't look around hard enough, I would not have found it, and frankly I wasn't even expecting it.

The outdoor gym was not fully equipped, but it had a lot of things that you don't normally see at a park where I am from in the USA. The outdoor gym did not have free weights like the place in Bangkok, Thailand (check out the outdoor gym park in Bangkok here), but it had a multi-purpose rack where you could do curls, squats, upright rows, shoulder presses etc.

Here is a quick list of they had:
- 3 Multi-Purpose Racks with designated weights already attached to a bar (squats, shoulder press, curls, dead lifts,
- 4 Shoulder Press Machines at different difficulty levels for doing stand up Military Presses
- 2 Core Machine for abs
- 3 Pull Up bars for pull ups, muscle ups, toe to bar etc.
- 3 permanent concrete boxes (different heights) for box jumps, step ups, or even decline push ups
- 1 set of Battle Ropes
- 1 Rope Climb set up with no knots
- 1 designated area for push ups, sit ups, planks, or burpees (circular concrete patio)
- Small hill for sprints or even bear crawls, maybe even weight carries if you bring some along such as sand bags, jerry cans etc.
- Park is ideal for running just like most parks, there are paved and also single tracks along the edges of the park.

And that's pretty much it. You can get a little creative and do some really intense circuits. If you've been to this outdoor gym, please comment below and tell me how you liked it!

I really enjoyed this outdoor gym park, and I know that there are a lot more around the city, but this is the only one that I went too, and I would definitely try to do a workout and visit if you are ever in Malmo, Sweden.
