In 2014, it was announced that Primary schools in England are going to share an extra £150m per year sports funding until 2020.
To help cater for this new funding we have released a range of high quality playground gym equipment. The addition of outdoor gym equipment and outdoor fitness equipment can encourage sports, fitness and exercise on the playground or in the park, and help to promote a healthier lifestyle.
Our range of outdoor gym equipment includes a wide variety of products for aerobic exercises, such as our air walker, and strength training, such as our seated chest press. We also offer a range of flooring to be able to give you the full solution to your playground needs.
Our inspirational range of outdoor fitness equipment is suitable for the complete novice right through to the experienced athlete. Our full range of exercise stations can be viewed here.
