I’m all about quick and efficient workouts, which is why I love high intensity interval training (HIIT)! In the gym, this usually means doing some 30-sec on, 30-sec off intervals on the bike or treadmill, but I always prefer getting my sweat on outside.
It’s a small park with little paved trails, stairs, several playgrounds and even a small outdoor gym for the elderly (yes, I have a bit of an obsession with seniors)!
And here’s a fun fact: according to Wikipedia, the park was the former location of the Choi Sai Woo Reservoir, which was “the scene of bitter fighting during WWII as the Japanese advanced to split the defence of Hong Kong into two” (okay, maybe not such a fun fact after all…).
Here are some pics of the park:
At the top of the stairs are a set of swings, a playground for kids and elderly workout stations. We (me and my one-time contributor Chris) had a go at some of them and can say that they’re definitely good for seniors who want to stay mobile. There’s no resistance on any of them, but they do the job at getting the blood flowing.
Here’s a silly video we made on Boomerang of the workout stations:
