Workers at Quorum Business Park are finding it easier to keep fit, thanks to the new outdoor fitness station just opened by a key member of the Newcastle Falcons rugby team.

The six-piece fitness station, which is available to the park’s employees hroughout the spring and summer months, has been designed to assist with toning work, cardio fitness, resistance training and cool-downs.

Newcastle Falcons player Alex Crockett was on hand to officially launch the equipment with some help from NE Fit Bootcamp and Quorum’s on-site trainer Adam Hitchings.

Crockett, a former England Saxons and England Under-21s player, said: “The gym equipment looks like it will be a big draw for people on the park.

“I’m sure Quorum staff will be fighting fit before the summer is out!”

Quorum Business Park events and sustainability manager Laura Barber added: “The fitness station is a fantastic addition to the park’s leisure facilities, alongside the sports club pitches and exercise programmes run on-site.

“The station’s ease of access is a good incentive for staff on the park to introduce exercise into their daily routine.”
