State-of-the-art fitness suite boosts impressive sports facilities

The sports facilities that students at Giles Academy have access to was already impressive. Now a state-of-the-art fitness suite packed full of cardio and resistance equipment is the latest addition on top of our massive sports hall, gym studio, outdoor courts plus grass pitches and track.

In the fitness suite, there are 20 pieces of brand-new cardio equipment that include treadmills, rowers, bikes and cross-trainers. This is complemented with resistance equipment where older students can add leg extension, abductor/adductor, lat pulldown and chest press exercises to their workout.

There is a large exercise and stretch area in the fitness suite giving the flexibility to run group classes and fitness training sessions alongside using the equipment.

The fitness suite has its own spacious changing rooms with separate male/female zones and disabled toilets.

This new facility is supervised by our PE staff and will be available for students to use during lunchtime and after-school as well as during timetabled PE lessons.

All students will have received a fitness induction so they are able to use the equipment properly and so they can get the benefit from a safe workout.

The benefits of regular cardio workouts go way beyond improving physical appearance as it will increase mental productivity as well as our student’s wellbeing by boosting mood, reducing stress and helping ensure better sleep.

For students who do not regularly participate in team sports, use of the fitness suite will provide them with another option to keep active and healthy.
