Similar to an indoor gym found in a leisure centre, outdoor gym equipment offers the same opportunities for fitness but has the added benefit of being out in the fresh air, being protected with a special all-weather coating and it can be used and enjoyed all year-round.

At Fresh Air Fitness, we specialise in outdoor gym equipment for schools and manage the whole process from design and manufacture to delivery, installation and post-purchase care. If you are interested in seeing how an outdoor gym could benefit your school, we would carry out an initial site visit, establish your specific goals and make suggestions on where your outdoor gym might be best installed and which equipment most closely meets your requirements. We would also run through all current special offers and talk you through how your outdoor gym could be eligible for funding using your PE and Sport Premium.

Installing an outdoor gym into your school can transform an area of unused land in the school grounds or enhance an existing trim trail, it is also extremely valuable during these times when being outdoors in the fresh air is actively encouraged. Depending on the number of pieces of equipment you choose, an outdoor gym can be installed in as little as one day, causing minimal disruption to the daily school routine.

Once installed, your outdoor gym will integrate seamlessly into a PE programme, as well as potentially being available for use by class ‘bubbles’ at breaktimes and lunchtimes and even during after-school clubs too. The outdoor gym offers pupils a wide selection of different exercise equipment to try out and they can use it for fitness and for fun. Exercising in the sunlight and the fresh air is proven to have many health benefits, and outdoor gyms are also low maintenance, environmentally friendly and provide many years of enjoyment.  

How your school’s outdoor gym equipment is 'bubble friendly'

After your school's standard Covid-19 risk assessment has been carried out, your outdoor gym equipment will be ready to give school 'bubbles' a wonderful opportunity to exercise outside in the sunlight and open air and to try out new and innovative types of equipment from the Air Skier to the Seated Leg Press and our popular Arm and Pedal bike.

We have carried out research which demonstrates how using the outdoor gym for exercise during the school day makes children feel ‘happy’ and helps them to concentrate in class, so your outdoor gym will be a fantastic addition to any existing offering at your school. Each piece of equipment has been designed and manufactured to specifically suit children and the range introduces the full cross section of fitness from cardio and strength to balance and flexibility.

Our innovative outdoor gym equipment enriches a PE programme and enables your PE teachers to create low-risk, Covid-secure, outdoor lesson plans.

Between classes equipment can be quickly wiped and made ready for the next bubble.  Each piece of equipment is installed at 1.5 metres apart, so schools can provide a healthy activity for children to take part in and have fun with, whilst maintaining a safe distance. 

An outdoor gym meets the criteria of the Sport & PE Premium, so if you would like to find out more about funding an outdoor gym for your school, we have an experienced team who would love to hear from you. You can call us on 01483 608860 or email us on
