Following extensive market research and customer feedback, the Children’s Rower was the natural choice to add to the existing Primary school outdoor gym equipment range and the reaction to our first few installations has been priceless.

Schools tell us that their outdoor gym equipment never goes unused and has created a huge buzz at playtimes and lunchtimes as well as during PE lessons. Creating an outdoor fitness zone is also a sustainable solution and builds on the capacity and capability within a school, which will benefit pupils now and for years to come.

“We’re seeing children, that at break-times might have previously sat around, now queuing up to get active on the outdoor gym equipment.” - David Harris, Ravenscote Juniors


Boosting Children’s Physical Activity in School

We have carried out extensive research in primary schools who have installed outdoor gym equipment. Both pupils and teachers agreed that the least active children were engaged, sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs were enriched, and physical activity became embedded into the school day.

Having an outdoor gym gives everyone in school the chance to benefit from sport and physical activity, regardless of ability. Children do not compete on outdoor gym equipment, they participate – making it fully inclusive for the most and least sporty. 

Most importantly an outdoor gym transforms the playground into a fully interactive fitness zone that pupils get endless enjoyment from whilst socialising with their friends.
