THE Mayor of Dudley stopped off to officially unveil a new outdoor gym at the borough’s Action Heart HQ.

Councillor Alan Finch launched the new facility, based outside Russells Hall Hospital, Dudley, on Wednesday May 14, as part of walk to work week (which ran from May 12 to 16).

The hospital site is believed to be the first in Britain to have unveiled its own Olympic Park-style outdoor gym.

Comprising 16 pieces of equipment , the same as items installed at London’s Olympic Village, the facility has been installed to encourage patients, visitors and staff to work out their way to a healthier lifestyle.
