Kids actively enjoy R-Gym at McDonald’s

Kids are lining up to ride the stationary bikes at Richard Ruby’s McDonald’s restaurant in Whittier, Calif. They also are shooting hoops on his mini-basketball court and playing on a “dance pad.”

The equipment is part of a new play area Ruby installed last summer that is designed to encourage young customers to exercise more. Called the R-Gym—after Ronald McDonald—the gym replaces a more passive PlayPlace activity center.
