The Popular Municipal Group will request during the celebration of the next plenary session, July 31, that the City Council proceed to create one or more calisthenics parks in the municipality of Totana.
Calisthenics is a word of Greek origin that brings together the concepts kallos (beauty) and sthenos (strength).
It aims at grace and beauty in the exercise.
Calisthenics is a method of physical training in which only the body weight is used, it is a system of physical exercises with the body weight itself whose interest is focused on the movement of muscle groups.
Calisthenics parks are composed of fixed outdoor games for physical exercises using the body weight itself.
This training discipline has more interest in the movements of muscle groups than in power and effort.
We are currently seeing how the practice of this outdoor sport has become fashionable among young people and not so young, as they have sent us by the different requests that have been made for the installation of one of these parks in the municipality of Totana, since the closest are in the neighboring towns of Aledo and Mazarrón, specifically in Bolnuevo, which forces them to have to travel for training.
Totana has numerous parks and outdoor areas throughout its Municipal Term, where these parks could be adapted for the practice of this sport.
The residents of the municipality, especially young people, need healthy places where they can meet and play sports and it must be the Consistory that puts the necessary means to meet that demand.
From the Popular Party we intend to carry out a study on the most suitable location of them, being able to install one in the urban area and another in the village of Paretón, so that athletes can carry out their personal training.
Another of the motions that the Popular Municipal Group will defend is the institutionalization of the act of homage to the Flag of Spain, so that every October 12, coinciding with the day of Hispanity, an act of homage to the Enseña is celebrated in Totana National.
