Primary schools outdoor gym equipment

Let’s give our primary school children a lesson for life: a love of health and fitness! Our range of outdoor gym equipment, endorsed by OFSTED, an excellent use of Sports Premium are specifically designed for primary school aged children.

Why An Outdoor Gym?

As advances in technology increasingly draw young people indoors and the curriculum become more demanding, it can be hard to find time to coax children outside for the fresh air and exercise that they need to thrive.

Our range of outdoor gym equipment, endorsed by OFSTED, is specifically designed for primary school aged children. Outdoor exercise is proven to enhance fitness, stimulate emotional wellbeing and help deliver essential oxygen and vitamin D, while working on specific physical benefits including muscle strength, flexibility, balance and co-ordination – not to mention the sense of achievement the children will have!

We have a wealth of experience working with local authorities, PTAs, governing bodies and teachers to install outdoor gyms in schools across the UK. Safety, quality and long warranties come as standard – as does our full attention and advice throughout.
