What is Outdoor Gym Equipment for schools?

Outdoor gym equipment for schools is purpose built, child-sized equipment which should be no more than 1.4 metres in height. It has a combination of moving and static parts and is powered by the user's own body weight.

An outdoor gym adds variety to a Physical Education programme, playtimes and after school clubs. It acts as an early introduction to the many benefits of fitness in a fun an engaging way. Using an outdoor gym is based on participation rather than competition, so it appeals to all abilities

Popular pieces on a child-sized outdoor gym include the Monkey Bars, Children's Arm and Pedal Bike and the Children's Seated Leg Press.

Fresh Air Fitness currently has the largest range of children's outdoor gym equipment in the UK.


Cost of an outdoor gym for schools

An outdoor gym can start from as little £5000 for five pieces of equipment.

As an outdoor gym fulfils the PE & Sport premium criteria for government funding, you won’t have to rely on self-funding alone.

Fresh Air Fitness has installed over 3000 outdoor gyms in the UK since 2007 and as a leader in our field we are able to provide a number of special offers for primary schools and special offers for secondary schools to give schools access to excellent quality, as well as value for money.

Outdoor Gym Equipment for Schools Case Studies

Haverhill Primary School, Clements Academy

The children at Haverhill Primary School wanted to get active and requested some outdoor gym equipment which could be used during break and lunchtimes, as well as PE lessons. The school council worked alongside teachers and pupils to select their favourite pieces of equipment and the area of the school grounds where they would most like to have it installed.

VIEW STORY

Sandhurst Secondary School

Sandhurst School is a secondary school in Berkshire, with over 1000 pupils. The staff and pupils wanted an innovative outdoor gym solution that would appeal to a wide cross-section of students. The local leisure centre, located next to the school, also wanted to make use of it and so the solution needed to be suitable for their clients as well. After completing a site visit, we worked with the school and agreed that the Big Rig would be a fantastic solution with its extensive, 16 user station opportunity.
