OrthoCarolina brings free, easy-to-use bodyweight-based workouts to South Carolina.
The Free Workout, a free, functional fitness workout that utilizes Clean Graffiti on the sidewalks to help make fitness and a healthy lifestyle accessible to everyone, made its debut in South Carolina recently. This bodyweight-based exercise routine was designed by an OrthoCarolina medical provider and offers a great alternative to a traditional gym routine.
With successful campaigns in Charlotte (13 total #TheFreeWorkout locations) and Winston Salem (7 total locations), it was time to expand to the growing communities of Rock Hill and Fort Mill, SC. Four sidewalk workouts were placed in each city and you can find the locations of this community-building fitness initiative here.
These workouts are created by using Clean Graffiti, an eco-friendly medium that simply uses high-pressured water to make a contrast in dirt. That’s right – no paint, no acid, no bleach – it’s just water (how cool is that?!).
The Actual Workouts
The Free Workout is a self-guided workout with six body-weight movements that you can repeat 5x or modify as needed. It takes place along an approximately 600-800 foot stretch of sidewalk around popular areas of town. The workouts are designed for any fitness level and are free and open to use to the public.
