The Area of ??Operational Services of the City of Rincon de la Victoria will begin next week the installation of a new calisthenics park located on the beach of La Cala del Moral, as announced by the councilor of the area, José Luis Pérez (PA). It is the third sports park of this type that is installed in the municipality, which currently has two other enclosures on the beaches of Rincon de la Victoria, in El Tajo and next to the Granadillas River. The winning company that will install the street work out in La Cala del Moral is Kenguru Pro Spain for a budget of 18,114 euros.
The new space will be located next to the Mare Nostrum Exhibition Hall (former train station) and will have various elements for the practice of calisthenics, a set of physical exercises based on the body's own weight and where different groups are working muscles through the effort.
The mayor of Rincón de la Victoria, Francisco Salado (PP), said that "we continue to work on the improvement plan to recover public spaces with the aim of promoting healthy lifestyles through the practice of sports." In addition, the councilor noted that "with this new street work park we meet the demands of amateur athletes and neighbors."
The mayor of the area said "the popularity of this sport, where athletes can train physically and mentally outdoors without the need for weights." In addition, "with this type of facilities on the seafront, sports are encouraged in outdoor places, making the beachfront a gym where neighbors and visitors can practice outdoor sports enjoying the extraordinary weather that we have in the municipality, "says the mayor.
The calisthenics sports park will include, among other elements, pull-up bars, a Swedish wall, an abdominal bench, an inclined and standard monkey bar, high and low parallel bars as well as "frestyle bars", which makes it one of the more complete and modern parks installed in the area, specially designed and manufactured for outdoor installations, and that comes to complete the recreational spaces on the beach, since a few months ago all the playgrounds in the area were renovated, "says Pérez.
Last May 11 Rincon de la Victoria hosted the I Championship of Kenguru in the calisthenics park installed last summer at the beach of the Granadillas River, where 80 athletes from different corners of the national geography met.
