We've had workout stations in parks in NJ for years. I've never seen anyone using them, except the runnings who use them to stretch. I've used the chinup bars once or twice, and the body row bar. This stuff is different than the stuff in NJ, but it's just a bunch of
y machine exercises and cardio gear. Like people need more than some sneakers to do their cardio!
The problem with waistlines in Canada and the US isn't lack of equipment to train on, that's for sure. It's lack of actual training and proper eating habits. Just seems like a big waste of money.
