Charge your phones with ‘Green Power’ and speed up your heart rate at a new fitness park in The Ponds.

Blacktown City Council has installed new fitness equipment in Jonas Bradley Park that has the added benefit of allowing users to charge their mobile phones as they exercise.

Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM said the $84,000 project had been fully funded by Council.

“The state of the art equipment includes moving and static ‘stations’ with the cardio exercising equipment allows the user to generate electricity to charge their mobile phone or tablet while exercising,” Mayor Bleasdale said.

“I highly recommend residents to make use of the equipment. It’s a win-win-win situation.

“Not only are you improving your health, enjoying outdoor activities but you’re saving on power bills by charging your mobile devices at the same time.”

The fitness park includes an Energy Charge Cross Trainer, an Energy Charge Hand Bike, Leg Press, Pull Ups, Chest Press, Leg Raise and Plyometric Boxes.
