HEALTH AND FITNESS: I first encountered “outdoor fitness equipment” when I moved to Finland in 2007. The first thing that came to mind was, how wonderful it would to be able to install this in Bhutan. It would blend in with our nature and also give our folks an opportunity to stay strong and fit. A line of equipment that can stand our weather, and a line of equipment that require little to no maintenance, almost impossible to be damage or stolen. Below are some insight into these equipment that has finally made it to Bhutan.
Other equipment will be featured in the next column, stay tuned!
