As of 1 December 2023, Forres has a new, free to use outdoor gym, located on Sanquhar Road. This £72,000 outdoor gym was developed by Forres Community Sports Hub and Forres Community Council with Berry Burn Community Fund giving £45,000 towards the project.
Equipment includes; multi-station/multi-user full body workout pieces, plus seats/shelters, arm bike accessible from seat/standing position/wheelchair, offering cardiovascular training. Magnetic bells give users two weights/different strength levels, agility trim trail. A free downloadable app will act like a virtual personal trainer.
Moray Council will routinely maintain/inspect the equipment and ongoing fundraising efforts to support the gym and potential future development has been created through a GoFundMe campaign administered by Forres Sports Hub.
