Fresh Air Fitness celebrated 15 years of business this week, with a big birthday bash!
19th October 2022
Founded by Paul Martin, who spotted a gap in the market when looking for ways to get fit outdoors, Fresh Air Fitness, based in Frimley, Surrey, has led the charge in the proliferation of outdoor fitness equipment across the UK, becoming part of a global industry which is expected to reach $1.8 billion by 2030.
Available to buy as part of a set package or individual pieces, each Fresh Air Fitness product is designed by the product development team to be fun and functional. With the most extensive range in the UK, the business offers an adult and child-sized range, making them a popular investment with councils and schools.
Tom Willock, Managing Director of Fresh Air Fitness, commented: “In 15 years, we have installed over 4,000 outdoor gyms across the UK, and we have seen the benefits our outdoor gyms offer from improving fitness, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour to providing a place to socialise for local communities. With a Fresh Air Fitness gym, there are no gimmicks, just safe, compliant outdoor equipment which is fun to use and, once installed, available for everyone for free.
Paul Martin, Founder and Chair, added, “What a fantastic 15 years in business we have had! Starting with one small office, we were pioneers of a new concept and approach to personal health, fitness and well-being. We now have a UK north and south team, have our own product development team and are continually creating new products and improving our existing ones. And despite natural disasters, a global pandemic and a recession we continue to grow.
“The success of the business is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our amazing Fresh Air Fitness team. I am looking forward to more exciting times to come!”
A Primary School Starter Package with five pieces of child-sized equipment costs £5,000 and is eligible for some types of government funding. A Council Package, which includes six pieces of equipment, has 11 user stations, is available to purchase for £6,500. Both packages include installation into grass. Aftercare service includes a customer care helpline, how-to video guides and access to a fitness app.
