City launches free outdoor training along the Anne Canal

Tartu City Government Press Release


14 April / On 24 April, the City of Tartu will resume free outdoor training for adults. Training sessions will take place on Mondays from 18.00–19.30 in the outdoor gym by the Anne Canal.

According to Deputy Mayor Mihkel Lees, the free exercise facilities offered by the city have become more popular with each passing year. ‘In Tartu, athletic fields and playgrounds have been designed so that people with different interests and abilities can find the free exercise that suits them best. During the outdoor training sessions organised by the city, experienced physiotherapists will help Tartu residents to get the most out of exercise and enjoy the benefits,’ said Lees.

Awaited at the outdoor training sessions are beginners, who need advice on how to start training, and advanced users, who want to try outdoor training in addition to the opportunities offered by a gym. The right exercises and a suitable training load will be found for all participants. A physiotherapist from OÜ FysioCentrum will be present at each training session, instructing participants, based on their wishes and needs, on how to use training equipment, while helping them to correct the performance of exercises, and providing advice on putting together a training plan. The training session includes a warm-up, basic training, and relaxation. In addition to exercise, a physiotherapist can help you assess your physical fitness level.

Outdoor training sessions take place every Monday from 24 April through 25 September, except public holidays (not on 1 May), a total of 22 times. You do not have to register for the training sessions in advance, and anyone interested can join the training sessions on an ongoing basis. In case of very severe weather conditions (heavy rain and thunderstorm), the training session will be cancelled, with an announcement being made on the website of the City of Tartu and on its Facebook page.

Training is free for participants. The training sessions are led by the team from OÜ FysioCentrum, with financial support from the City of Tartu.
