Updated: Mar 9, 2020
We just welcomed a new year (and decade) and with it comes a fresh start! Every year getting fit and healthy is one of the top New Year's resolutions. Exercise and movement for kids, teens and adults is more important than ever in this every changing digital-focused world. Kids especially are not as active as they were a generation ago. Let's motivate the next generation and ourselves to get moving by getting outside and getting fit while having fun! Physical activity promotes overall well-being, and studies have shown countless lifelong benefits of regular fitness for physical health, cognitive fitness and more.
Adding Outdoor Fitness Equipment to your park, school, recreation area, or other community space can be beneficial in encouraging kids, teens and even adults to get moving and get fit! After working with many communities to introduce innovative outdoor fitness equipment, we’ve seen first-hand how our equipment helps promotes exercise and provides a fun place for all ages to gather outside.
Miracle Playsystems offers a wide variety of Outdoor Fitness Equipment products. We have products for all ages and can help make your outdoor space an exercise destination.
Miracle Recreation Champions Trek (ages 5-12)
The development of Champions Trek was inspired by the Ninja Warrior phenomenon, a popular sporting challenge featuring competitive, obstacle-course events that push the limit of strength and endurance. It builds on the Crossway Climbers concept with new action elements.
Champions Trek is comprised of a series of ground-based elements designed to: provide a thrilling, full-body workout; engage children who prefer a challenge over a traditional post-and-platform play; keep kids coming back to improve their performance; and provide a variety of play paths that encourage social interaction and game-play.
Champions Trek can be combined with existing MREC freestanding items for an exciting challenge—perfect for a variety of spaces and budgets. The Champions Trek collection consists of six challenging elements. These elements provide a thrilling, full-body workout that pushes the limits of fun!

This 6.6-acre park was originally built in 1995 in the Hampton Village neighborhood of Elk Grove. The renovated park has something for everyone to enjoy! The playgrounds were renovated with separate areas for 2-5 and 5-12 year olds with customized Miracle play structures with bright, fun colors. Adults and children can also come together and work out on the Miracle Recreation Fitness Equipment which is installed around the playground equipment. This is another great example of using outdoor fitness playground equipment by bringing the whole community together in one park setting.
