The City of Yellowknife has built an outdoor gym at Olexin Park across from the Coast Fraser Tower.

The outdoor equipment has low impact workout stations including an elliptical machine, a bench for sit-ups and bars for pull-ups.

They are designed for people to use their own body weight as resistance.

Mayor Mark Heyck says so far it's been a hit.

"The feedback we've been receiving has been absolutely remarkable," he said.

"I think that there's a very good chance, if it holds up well throughout the winter, then we will look at holding some budget items for future years at other parks."
