Plashet Park Swing Box

At Swing, we are partnering with councils, social prescribers, personal trainers and local community groups to reduce barriers to physical activity and strength training.

We developed Swing combining:

  • Hardware: Swing Box, the World’s first gym bench with integrated free-weights, designed for outdoor use. It has an adjustable backrest from -10 to +90 and contains a range of dumbbells and kettlebells from 1-20kg.
  • Software: Swing App, which is used to unlock the Swing Box and hosts a free video library, providing users with a range of workout options and high-quality instructional content to support them to exercise safely and progress their fitness.

Our Swing Box is rentable on a pay-as-you-go- basis and costs £1 to unlock and 10p per min at full price. A subscription model is under development and expected to cost £9/month for 30 minutes of access every day.

For social prescribing referrals we are offering a 50% discount on our pay-as-you-go model. We are also working with local community groups and personal trainers to offer free group exercise sessions at the Swing Boxes. Together with our partners, we are making strength training accessible and affordable for everyone. Website is currently under construction.
