Caloo design, supply and install high quality outdoor gyms. See http://www.caloo.co.uk for further details. Our gyms are certified by TUV to test standard 55012:2010 Training Equipment Placed in Public Spaces and offer a safe and affordable exercise opportunity that is inclusive and fun. Caloo would like to encourage communities to be more active by installing more free to use Outdoor Gyms into community spaces, schools and leisure environments. We will strive to promote our free to use outdoor gym equipment to local communities around the UK by means of raising awareness of our products and their health advantages with funders, specifiers and policy makers around the UK to enable greater community access to our products. It is our target to have at least one facility within every municipal authority. We will work to achieve this in three main ways.Ensure as many potential providers and funders are aware of our products and the benefits to local communities once installed. Encourage our clients to collect and share usage data to enable comparison with health statistics in the long term which we hope will encourage further funding for future projects. Encourage policy, decision makers and funders to take into account the motivations, abilities, preferences and affordability for all members of any community when designing new leisure strategies.
