Personal Trainer workout tips for stratford parks
Lastly, before we get into my reccomendations for workout parks, you can view the locations that I cover by clicking the button below.
Fitness Training in Stratford Park
Stratford park is a good location to workout in as there are tennis courts and basket ball courts for all the family to get there daily exercise and also have some family fun at the same time. There is a good play ground for the kids to enjoy and run around with all of the other kids that are there, as this play area is always pretty active. The park does not have a outdoor gym or a big field space, however this is still a good park to workout in as there is still plenty of green to roll out a mat and start your workout.
Photos of Stratford Park
Here are some photos of Stratford park that I have taken. I wanted to show how clean and spacious the park is. The tennis courts are in great condition, ad the play area is well-designed to keep children happy for hours! I wasn’t able to find licence-free photos, so I took my own pics! Please feel free to upload photos that you have taken (in comments), and I will repost them.
Workouts in West ham park, Stratford
West ham park is a good park to workout in for many different reasons, there are two play areas for the kids to enjoy. Also there’s tennis court to have some family fun and plenty of green space to set up some form of sports activity. This park also has a outdoor gym with equipment based around the park such as pull up bars, dip bars, leg press, sit up bench, shoulder press. One of the best things about this park is that it has some great sights and also has shelter huts around the park, so if it rains there is nothing to stop you from doing a workout under one of them.
Things to note about fitness training in west ham park
From my experience,West Ham Park tends to have irregular closing times. The wardens drive around the park blowing whilstes to let you know that the park will be closing soon. So keep an ear out for those whistles as the park sometimes closes prior to the scheduled closing times. Above all, it can also interrupt your workout if you start the workout towards the end of the day.

Fitness Training at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park, Stratford
For me, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park outdoor gym, is the best place for an outdoor workout. There’s tennis, basketball, BMX, great walking and cycling paths and so much more. However, for me, the outdoor gym is the best in London. In the outdoor gym you will certainly get a good workout!
Queen Elizabeth olympic park -best for outdoor gym
Whether you want to be able to do a single pull up, or you’re really into calisthenics, you will have a great workout with the equipment at Queen Elizabeth Olympic park. There’s single pull up bars, a monkey bar, style bars to do a unique workout. Also, there’s dip bars and also benches that can be used for things such as step ups. in the area next to the outdoor gym there is a play ground for the kids to play in and there is also a stair case structure that can be used to run up and down. that park is close to Meany amazing sights so you could be walking with your partner, have a quick workout and then walk over to west field which is also close by, for something to eat -certainly a good thing!
