‘Take care of your body, it is the only place you have to live’ is a very appropriate quote by Jim Rohn. Our body is something which we should take utmost care of. During this time of modernization and fast life, we often miss the fact that no amount of money can bring to you your health back. And so proper diet and regular exercise are very important for one to keep himself fit and healthy.
Getting the willpower to decide to go to a gym and working out is already difficult and on the top of that, we even have to pay a fortune to these gyms as well which is not always possible for everyone. At such times, there are various open gyms in the city where you can work out and keep yourself fit and that too without paying a single penny. All that you have to pay is hard work and dedicated efforts. Here is a list of places which are equipped with open gyms.
This open gym is situated opposite the shrine near Saraswati Library. Gulab Bagh is a huge garden where you can warm yourself up before the exercise by running and then you can head towards the gym. Gulab Bagh is a place which is very frequently visited by the people of Udaipur for the workout so it is possible that you may get a workout partner there. However, because of the same reason, the gym is a bit crowded during the mornings.

These were the list of some open-air gyms in the city. While it seems very good and enjoyable to practice workout in the open air, we should understand that it is a facility given to us for our own benefits. Just for some moments of fun, do not harm any of these machines and equipment as what you do now will make everyone else suffer. Make sure that you respect and take care of the things in your city and use these facilities carefully. If you see someone else doing so, tell him not to do such things and if it doesn’t work out, try contacting some authorities regarding the same.
