HAGS & TGO to activate 5 million people
In the fight back against coronavirus, outdoor gym leader, The Great Outdoor Gym Company and outdoor play leader, HAGS, have launched their new partnership with a vision to activate the health of people and the planet. The goal is simple – to provide a movement journey for all. HAGS Fitness powered by TGO will create the next generation of family-friendly outdoor fitness spaces, inclusive for all generations from young to old and for inactive to active.
As the world adapts and recovers from Covid-19, movement is the medicine that everyone can take now. Regular physical activity boosts immunity and reduces or even reverses chronic health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease, all of which increase the risk of hospitalisation and death from coronavirus.
HAGS Fitness powered by TGO partnership – 5 Year Goals
- Install 5000 new gyms to activate the power of movement – creating the most accessible and inspiring outdoor fitness spaces, to tackle the inactivity crisis across the globe, reduce obesity and diabetes, boost immunity, mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and improve mental health.
- Inspire, empower and activate 5,000,000 people – providing the most family-friendly products and packages on the market, featuring the most inclusive outdoor gym and play equipment with activation tools tailored for all ages and abilities. Antimicrobial paint, hand sanitising stations and well-spaced equipment in outdoor locations all combine to offer peace of mind to gym users, whatever their age or health status.
- Protect the planet – together, TGO Gyms and HAGS will plant 25,000 trees, support ocean clean ups and promote sustainability from design through to manufacturing, installation and activation programmes.
Joint Managing Director of TGO Gyms, Georgie Delaney, said:
“The great strength of this new partnership between TGO Gyms and HAGS is our shared vision. We agree that movement is one of the best medicines we have – physical activity helps people of all ages to maintain good health, improve wellbeing and prevent or even reverse chronic health conditions. We also care deeply about sustainability, respecting our natural resources and giving back to our planet wherever we can, including with our tree-planting programme. By joining forces with HAGS, there are also huge export opportunities for us in brand new territories.”
Managing Director EMEA of HAGS, Mark Hoskins, said:
“We are excited to introduce this fantastic range of fitness products to our portfolio. This new partnership will help us with our mission to encourage communities to spend more time outdoors by offering products that are of the highest quality, innovative, fun, safe and inclusive. It will also allow us to learn from each other on improving our sustainability because we care for the environment as much as we care for people.”
