Tai Chi and Trim Trail

Our wooden trim trail is perfect for exercising. Our Play Fit equipment provides a gentle form of exercise outdoors, suitable for adult use.

Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, combines deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, tai chi is today practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise.

Tai chi is characterised by its slow, graceful, continuous movements that are gentle on the joints and muscles. Done correctly, you'll find that the tai chi poses flow smoothly from one into another. Many movements are completed with bent knees in a squat-like position. Come down and have a go on our Thai Chi equipment.

We all know how important it is to stay active and keep fit – for adults, young people and seniors alike. There are enormous benefits from doing regular exercises – it is good for co-ordination, mobility and core-stability and has a role in preventing falls amongst older people. Our Playfit equipment is based on the ancient and traditional movements of Tai Chi and enables you to perform simple low-impact exercises at your own pace. Instructions are printed on each piece of equipment.
