Halloween Street Workout promises physical benefits with plenty of fun
According to Wikipedia, a street workout is a physical activity performed mostly in outdoor parks or public facilities. It originated in ancient Greece, but became a popular movement in Russia, Eastern Europe, and the United States especially in urban neighborhoods of New York City. It has now spread all over the world. It is a combination of athletics, calisthenics and sports.
Street workout is a modern name for bodyweight workouts in outdoor parks. Street workout teams and organized competitions exist. Street Workout Japan (SWJ) and Street Workout Okinawa (SWO) are organizing a Halloween Workout in front of Koza Sports Park Baseball Stadium in Moromizato, Okinawa city on Sunday, Oct. 30th. It’s said that the best thing about street workout is that it does not matter whether people don’t have a good physical coordination ability or they have slow reflexes, they can enjoy exercising on a horizontal bar at their own pace in a park or on a beach.
This year Halloween is Sunday. Everybody can join this event for free, and between 14:30 and 17:30 try a workout on a horizontal bar, parallel bars, and on the floor. The event begins at 15:00 with a performance by SWO. Those wanting to give the street workout a try can join a workshop at 15:30. No need to apply in advance. A basic exercise of Street Workout with everybody is more fun than you could believe. As it’s Halloween, those coming in costume will get a present.
