- Raised pull-up bars

What's special about this outdoor fitness frame design?
This Octagon fitness frame has been designed so that gym classes can take place in the same space, with MOVE IT programming running underneath the frame, incorporating its attachments as workout stations for participants.
“The Bluecoats team visited Escape HQ, had a training day and we talked a bit more,” explains Escape key accounts manager, Richard Burton. “They had a look at the detail within the MOVE IT package and it was a sensible choice for them. It's all there for them and there's going to be consistency along with the education as well.”
