Taking part in regular physical activity is essential to the well being of all students. Along with improving physical health, regular exercise has also been proven to enhance the ability to concentrate and maintain focus, hence contributing to improved academic performance. With results like these, it is no wonder why schools and universities are developing their own physical activity programmes.
For these programmes to be successful though, it needs careful planning of space and equipment alongside designing an engaging student experience that ensures long-term commitment. Outdoor gyms have been popping up in schools around the country to make fitness both fun and accessible for all. Spending time in an outdoor school gym area with the best school gym equipment offers a whole range of health benefits to children as they grow and develop.
So if you are thinking to embrace the fresh air of fitness at your school, then it is essential to choose gym equipment pieces that are versatile enough to be used by different ages and ability levels. With so much choice available now when it comes to choosing the best school gym equipment, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to begin.
Gymwarehouse has listed a few essential gym items that would work well in any school gym.
GTC Zeus Treadmill
The Zeus Treadmill is a popular choice of machine among schools and other small businesses. The treadmill offers all the reliability and robustness of the Titan Treadmill but in a smaller, more compact package.
This highly attractive and superbly functional treadmill is meant to provide years of exceptional service to the progressive gym clubs. The Zeus Treadmill has the same ‘bulletproof’ AC running gear as the Titan and the practical advantage of reduced size for the gym areas requiring the efficiency of space. However, functionality and reliability have always been the key to the design of this GTC machine.
It also boasts a multitude of functions, including incline/speed programs, entertainment input, Direct Speed/Incline input, and Heart Rate Indicator. This is an excellent choice for the astute gym owner. The purposeful layout of the display makes it a joy to use for experienced runners and newcomers alike.
Generally, treadmills come with pre-set programmed running speed, but the GTC commercial running machines can be set accurately to reflect the actual speed of the athlete while using the machine. Added speed calibration on the GTC commercial machines is sure to delight the customers.
GTC 600 Commercial Gym Cross Trainer
The latest series of Professional Grade Cardio Machines is here! The new GTC Rear drive 600 series cross trainer is available now from our UK warehouse. The machine features an elegant console and uses the Hand Grip HRM system to provide the user with heart rate indication. The machine measures 2190mm x 650mm x 1720mm when assembled and does not require any power supply. There is touch control on the arms, which makes it easy adjusting the Croostrainer during a strenuous workout.
