We need pull-up bars in Aberdeen!
If you have ever been abroad or have watched exercise videos from overseas, you have probably noticed that there's parks with pull-up bars everywhere you look around! However, here in Aberdeen the best thing that one can find are monkey bars in children's play parks which are very limited to what can be done on them.
Areas with pull-up bars would create an opportunity for both young and senior people to enjoy exercise outdoors without having to buy an expensive gym membership. What is more, with parks like these in the open, the younger generation would also be inspired to work towards a healthier lifestyle rather than getting involved in alcohol consumption, smoking and worse.
All in takes to start this off is a very simple setup - a pull-up bar or a few and a set of parallel bars. Perhaps a layer of sand or wood chips on the ground would also be a helpful to avoid muddy and slippery grass.
If you support this idea and would like to see this project be made a reality, then please sign this petition, so we can make ourselves heard.
