Kids Fitness Equipment For Schools & Public Spaces
Kids fitness equipment encourages a healthy lifestyle in a fun and safe way.
Outdoor Gyms for children: Our approach
We look to support and encourage exercise in schools and public spaces and have worked with a variety of local authorities and schools to help promote safe play and physical education.
Our children's gym equipment is specifically designed and custom built. We only provide units which are rigorously tested and certified to meet all the latest European Safety Standards of BS EN 16630. It's also suitable for use in primary school environments, however we do suggest that children should be supervised at all times while using it.
With the increasing loss of green spaces across the UK and children spending more time on phones, tablets, computers and the internet, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that activity levels amongst the young is on the decline.
Why Exercise is important for children
As fitness enthusiasts, coaches, parents, teachers, and role models to our kids, we hear a lot about the growing childhood obesity epidemic. When you consider the striking number of hours that kids spend attached to a screen, combined with the current food situation and availability of junk food and sweets, it's really not surprising.
No matter how convenient, educational, or mood-enhancing computers and other devices may be, experts agree that although screen time isn't bad in and of itself, there needs to be a limit, so being outdoors and getting all that good old fashioned fresh air is so important.
Benefits of physical activity for kids:
- Regular physical activity amongst children has been shown to improve attentiveness in lessons and at home too.
- Cognitive and physical development are completely connected. More physical activity equals better development of the brain, especially when children are young.
- Higher activity levels often go hand-in-hand with better results in key skills such as English and Math’s.
- Exercising on a regular basis is proven to reduce the risks of depression and anxiety in children.
- More time spent outdoors increases the feel-good factor and helps to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D in the body which help to promote serotonin production.
These are just some of the benefits.
Children enjoy Fitness
As adults many of us dread the idea of going for a run or visiting the gym. “It’s boring”, “I’m too busy”, “I’m too tired” are some of the reasons we come up with to avoid exercise. Children don’t think like us though, they almost always want to be active. They want to play, all we need to do is give them the facilities to do so.
