St Marys & St Pauls C Of E Primary School Outdoor Gym Project

EDUCATION

The school were looking for something that would get the children more active and our 10 user outdoor gym was the perfect solution.

St Marys & St Pauls C Of E Primary School

The Background

St Marys and St Pauls C of E Primary School, Merseyside is a mixed primary school with limited space for the children to play. It has a tarmac playground with the traditional goals, a small covered play area and a small disused section of grass. The school wanted to install something that would get the children more active and find a way of utilising the unused grassed area. They initially considered adding to the existing trim trail but after speaking with the children and the teachers, they decided they’d prefer an outdoor gym.

The Challenge

The challenge was to create a safe, fun, vibrant area that would allow an entire class to exercise at the same time, whilst making the most of the unused grassed area. After initial consultation, Fresh Air Fitness designed an outdoor gym that met with the school’s requirement, budget and time scale for completion and were awarded the project.

The Solution

The final design included a mixture of single user equipment mixed with double user. It also included our Cardio Combi which allows four users to exercise at the same time, all working independently of each other, allowing all levels of fitness, age, height, ability, everyone could work at their own pace. From the single user equipment, the Arm & Pedal Bike and Rider provide a full body workout building strength and burning energy. The double pieces included the seated Leg Press for developing balance, strength and tone in the lower body and Double Cross-Country Skier, for whole body workout.

The Result

The kids race to get on the equipment, at break-times, lunchtime and after school. All the staff and children have had complimentary training provided by Gareth Wilson. The school have complete peace of mind knowing they are all safe and enjoying the benefit of healthier, happier children. The school is now making an active impact of the children’s day to day lives by allowing them exercise even more in a safe, secure environment where they can exercise individually or as a group, the choice is theirs. “The gym looks fantastic and the kids have loved using it. The training session was a huge success and seeing them enjoying the equipment like this is just brilliant” Gareth Wilson
