A £40,000 fitness suite has been installed at Woodham Academy.
The academy opened the brand new, state-of-the-art, fitness suite last month after months of development to ensure the students can access a range of different gym equipment to further develop their understanding of health-related fitness.
Students can access the recently finished fitness suite during PE lessons and extra-curricular sessions.
With extensive research and multiple designs, the facility includes specialist equipment, with 21 cardio stations, along with floor space for body weight exercises. This allows for a full class to be active within a lesson.
The room has been finished off with specialist gym flooring, full length mirrors spanning the walls and a 75inch smart TV, making it an ideal space for KS3 health related fitness lessons, BTEC Sport lessons and a recreational space for students and staff.
Head teacher Andrew Bell said: “The fitness suite has been a work in progress for a number of months.
“It comes off the back of creating a brand new food room, which then created the space for this development.
“It looks like we will be full once again in September, so all current and new students will continue to benefit from the investment.”
