Green Gyms 20 Nov 2007
Cutting back vegetation at a BTCV Green Gym in Stockport
Getting fit in the open air

They're springing up all over the country, giving people the chance to ditch sweaty, indoor gyms for some old fashioned fresh air and exercise. 'Green Gyms' get people involved in things like planting a new hedge, cutting back an overgrown path, or helping build a community garden. The idea is to help people of all ages to get fit, whilst improving the local environment. The conservation charity BTCV says it's opened eighty projects in the last ten years. Reporter Jo Dwyer has been along to one in Bristol.
