Lake Haven Recreation Centre, Gorokan NSW

The Central Coast Council have specifically targeted adult fitness with their upgrade of the external area at the Lake Haven Recreation Centre.

The Lappset Medicine Ball Throw is a 4130 mm vertical wall with a ball attached to a rope. The ball can be thrown at the wall in many ways –  from the side of the body, from between the legs or from straight in front. The effectiveness of forward throws can be boosted by holding the ball from underneath and squatting before each throw. The ball can also be used as an additional weight for exercises such as squats, without throwing it. Experienced exercisers can do hand stands or hand stand push-ups against the wall. Ball-throwing accelerates the respiratory and circulatory systems and strengthens whole body muscular fitness.
