Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it inspire the end user to lead a healthier life?

Persons who like to exercise, practice weight-lifting, those who like to do some work out while going outside.

Just remembered the outdoor gyms I saw in Ukraine. Equipments made with materials that used to be part of trucks, machines and furnitures. 

The interesting was that some equipments were very practical to use in several weights, although very simple, using irons, tires and wood mostly.

I couldn't attach the video, but below it's the link where I took the pics of the Bayern Munchen F.C endurance training:

What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

From the feedback about the pianos on the streets, this items used on Bayern Munchen's training may inspire similar initiatives in public spaces

What skills, input or guidance are you keen to connect with from the OpenIDEO community to help you build out or refine your idea?

Recycling, fitness, artcraft, any suggestion is welcome

Have you heard of "play me, I'm yours" ( If you make your gym/work-out station small enough, perhaps it would be something that could be distributed "everywhere."

Hi Allen,
Thanks for indicate Play me, I'm yours! I didn't know about and its concept is pretty interesting to spread everywhere.
