|What do yoga, gymnastics, martial arts, parkour, and pole dancing have in common? They’re all part of a street workout, or “freestyle calisthenics,” a single fitness routine you can do outside — for FREE.
With street workouts, all you need is a playground, park bench, street lamp, or even a tree — the exercises rely on your own body weight for resistance.
Some cities are in better shape for this type of fitness training, though.
Lucky for you, Lawn Love already did the heavy lifting of finding the Best Cities for Street Workouts. We compared over 130 of the biggest U.S. cities based on access to playgrounds, ratings of street-workout parks, variety of available equipment, and eight other metrics.
