Pyongyang, October 31 (KCNA) -- The Thongil Street Fitness Centre in Rangnang District of Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK, is crowded with visitors every day.
This modern centre has more than 60 kinds of sporting apparatuses, modern treatment facilities and a comprehensive outdoor sporting ground of more than 15 000 square meters.
It was built on the initiative of Supreme Leader
In September Juche 101 (2012), the Supreme Leader visited the centre nearing completion to acquaint himself in detail with it.
Inspecting different parts of the center, he said that sporting apparatuses should be used in a scientific way under the professional advice. Exercise by apparatus is not physical training but curative gymnastics, he added.
After learning about how many fitness apparatuses the center has, he stressed the need to display a general visual explanation on them. And he stressed that service activities should be done well to make the visitors obtain their desired results in exercise and treatment.
In the country there are lots of such mass sports and cultural establishments built at the state expense.
