Working out at a health club isn't for everyone.

It's a fact that has been well-recognized for ages, but it's no longer a valid excuse for not exercising. Faced with a nationwide epidemic, communities and organizations are taking up arms against obesity and inactivity, breaking down barriers (both physical and psychological) that keep people from exercising. Parks and recreation organizations have been doing their part, creating new initiatives to appeal to the non-exerciser. For many, a particular point of success has been taking fitness outside of its traditional (and for some, unappealing) gym setting and leveraging the existing appeal of parks and green spaces.
