Port Blair
27 Aug 2018

The first open air gym of the Municipal Council here was inaugurated recently by the Chairperson, Mr Indra Pal Singh in the presence of Mr Suneel Anchipaka, Secretary PBMC at Marina Park.  The Sr. Vice Chairperson, Councillors, Sr. Officers, officials of the Council and general public attended the function. The Port Blair Municipal Council is rapidly heading towards development. Now, all the residents of Port Blair city, populace of nearby areas and tourist will be able to work out in the gym as the city’s first open-air gym has been inaugurated and dedicated to general public free of cost. The city has a lot of fitness freaks who work out in gyms, go for jogging but the concept of an open-air gym will give a completely different feeling of working out. The Open air gym is a new concept and will definitely help the residents in staying fit. The open air concept will be gradually implemented at Joggers Park, Gandhi Park, park at Attampahad(newly extended ward) and park in wad No.2. The equipment which included is Chest press, shoulder press, leg exercise, rover, spinners, ab trainer etc. The equipment installed was clamped onto concrete slabs, making it impossible to move them manually and are rain proof. The open air gym will be completely a different experience for the citizen of these Islands. This is the first time that the city has got such a facility. This will encourage people to do exercise after their morning or evening walk and this would help people to stay fit and healthy.
