Strip mall gyms

In Asia, outdoor gyms are all the rage. (According to the NY Times they’re on their way to the States too)

In Seoul and Beijing, I’ve seen people exercising after work, on a lunch break, whenever, at these gyms located in park areas, by the riverside, or even on a random sidew. In Seoul, I tried it out along the Nam river (a metal elliptical-type thing) and felt good about getting in a few minutes of exercise on my trip 🙂

Here is an example of a small one, in Seoul.

In Phnom Penh, I’ve noticed people doing outdoor aerobics classes, which is more my style. Here they are dancing along the Mekong riverfront.
