RUIDOSO, N.M.- People don't have to visit a gym to get a workout in Ruidoso.
The Ruidoso Parks and Recreation Center used a $7,000 grant from the Lincoln County Community Health Council and Presbyterian Healthcare Services to add two pieces of gym equipment at the Links Walking Trail.
Gillian Baudo, who often runs the trail, couldn't be happier.
"I can get everything done in a short period of time which I always love. Get my walk in, get my cardio and then get some focused arms and legs worked out too," Baudo said.
Rodney Griego, the director of Ruidoso Parks and Recreation, said people an get the workout they need with the leg press and butterfly machines.
"You can get a full body workout. It uses your body weight for resistance," Griego said.
Lisa Crenshaw, a physical therapist, believes it's a great way for the community to stay active and involved.
"I see a lot of people walking around the trails with strollers and running and there's children and adults alike. So, I'm really excited about this," Crenshaw said.
The equipment is available to everyone for free. The goal is to collaborate with other members of the community, with the goal of installing additional pieces in the near future.
