(KGW) Dan Morlan calls it adult recess as his grown-up clients work out on a giant jungle gym.
"This is what fitness should be all about, getting off the treadmill and having fun," Morlan says.
He's a physical therapist and so is his wife, Melissa.
Together they own the newly opened ActiveEDGE Wellness Center in West Linn, Oregon.
On the play structure for adults, there are endless possibilities for activities that promote functional exercise.
"You've got the core, you're working the arms and legs, plus you're using mobility and strength," added Dan.
