Requirement

Sandhurst School is a secondary school in Berkshire with over 1000 pupils. In 2018, the senior management team was looking for an innovative outdoor gym solution that would appeal to a wide section of the students, to be installed in a space that was unused. The local leisure centre, located next to the school, also wanted to make use of the new facility and so the solution needed to be suitable for their clients as well.

Solution

After completing a site visit, and further discussion with the school, it was agreed that the Big Rig would be an ideal solution. With 16 user stations and a wide variety of exercise options there would be real variety for all ages and abilities.

The Big Rig was fitted with a mulch surface which not only ensured that the installation complied with the relevant European safety standards relating to fall heights, but also made the site aesthetically pleasing.

Outcome

The Big Rig was extremely popular and a year later the school contacted Fresh Air Fitness to discuss an extension to the gym equipment. In May 2020 another four pieces of outdoor gym equipment and mulch surfacing were installed. Although not required for compliance reasons, the mulch provided a consistent look to the extended area. The additional pieces included an Elliptical Cross Trainer, Double Rower and Parallel Bars.

All equipment is suitable for ages 11+ and all abilities, from complete beginners to the most experienced, perfect for the school and leisure centre members.
