outdoor gym cornwall

As someone who guiltily neglects to use my gym contract enough (apart from the sauna!) because I always find myself wanting to be outside instead, I was quite enthused by this new National Trust outdoor gym, which blends perfectly into its surroundings on the Penrose Estate, near Helston.

It’s been designed by Boex 3D, a green design studio run by Sam and William Boex in Porthleven (Flora Day partners of mine from circa 1980!), and crafted mainly from wood sourced on the estate itself for full camouflage. The design is as natural as possible. Great idea, isn’t it?
