Fresh Air Fitness is delighted to announce a primary school in Slough has become its 3,000th outdoor gym installation.
14th January 2021
The new outdoor gym at Claycots Primary School in Monksfield Way was designed, manufactured, delivered and installed using the brand’s Covid-19 zero-contact socially-distanced service which meant pupils could benefit from their brand-new outdoor PE provision immediately.
The school removed an impractical, adult-sized provision and replaced it with a state-of-the-art child-sized Fresh Air Fitness outdoor gym, suitable for use by 30 children at once. The new outdoor gym equipment is perfect for PE lessons, breaktimes, aftercare and for use by children of keyworkers who are still attending school during phases of lockdown.
Fresh Air Fitness, based in Frimley, Surrey, is an award-winning, leading provider of outdoor gym equipment for schools in the UK. It has been designing, manufacturing and installing child-sized, outdoor gyms in schools since 2013. The professional and friendly service includes virtual site inspection, advice on layout, surfacing and waterlogging solutions, design and production and ‘zero-contact’ socially-distanced installations.
Claycots Headteacher, Andrew Griffin said: “We passionately believe in the power of sport in developing pupils’ physical, social, emotional and intellectual capacity. It is our vision to provide all pupils with the opportunity to engage in exciting physical education lessons where they can develop a wide range of transitional skills within a safe and secure environment. We are absolutely delighted with our Fresh Air Fitness outdoor gym equipment.”
Tom Willock, Managing Director at Fresh Air Fitness, said: “We are thrilled to have installed our 3,000th outdoor gym at Claycots Primary School and we will continue our mission to introduce outdoor gyms to schools up and down the country.
“An outdoor gym is a fantastic way to introduce children to exercise from an early age. Having an outdoor gym at your school means having a non-competitive, all-inclusive fitness facility where children of all abilities can participate and enjoy it for PE, playtimes, holiday clubs and aftercare.”
