Newton Outdoor Gym: Cold Spring Park
Cold Spring Park has one of the best outdoor gyms in Newton. There is an excellent 1.4 mile running trail loop with exercise stations along the way. The trail has rocks and roots, so it’s best to run or jog landing on the front part of the foot with lighter steps, and shorter strides. This running style allows you to quickly recover if you hit a loose rock or stumble over a root. As you jog the loop, you will come across exercise stations. We don’t recommend doing the exercises listed on some of the signs. It’s best to stick to movements that you perform at Cardio High: push-ups, steps ups, step hops and supported pull-ups.
