Tel Aviv is a vibrant city. Maybe it's the culture, or the climate, or the fact that it is a beach-front city. Sure is that part of the vibrancy comes from the inhabitants that seem obsessed with fitness.
The beaches (at least some of them) can be recognized with your eyes closed from the sound of the many people playing beach tennis. There are folks running everywhere, and many people use bicycles. But what struck me most are the many public fitness areas. Spaces with equipment to train your muscles. And they don't just sit there, but they're actually used.
Now, I don't know about you, but I like to exercise. I've taken to running, myself, and apart from making me feel good, it also keeps me occupied. Could these type of public fitness areas, running routes and bicycle lanes help in making cities more vibrant again?
