Regular exercise doesn't just strengthen muscles, it also paves the way for better educational experiences.  Research has shown that aerobic exercise physically transforms the brain, getting it ready to absorb information.  The more your students exercise, the more they'll benefit from improved:


Research has shown that our blood pressure and blood flow increases during exercise.  Increased blood levels results in increased energy and oxygen which makes our brain perform better and makes us more alert.


It's a proven and well known fact that physical activity boosts dopamine in the brain and increases serotonin levels, both which positively affect your focus and attention.


Exercise helps to release endorphins, which in turn triggers a feeling of euphoria.  This state of mind helps to motivate us to workout more regularly and to achieve.


Physical activity even prepares and encourages neurological cells to bind together - forming the foundation for the storage of new information.  In other words, a strong body creates a stronger mind, ready to collect and retain information.

Unfortunately, many students don't get the physical activity they need.

Obesity levels are rising and the UK has one of the highest rates of childhood obesity in Western Europe, costing the NHS around £4.2 billion a year.

At Hire Fitness, we're paving the way for a healthier future for the new generation.  With access to some of the world's best gym equipment, at a price that suits your learning facility, we can give you the tools you need to get your students excited about physical fitness again.

We offer a customised design solution that maximises your available space and offers the most cutting-edge, high-tech fitness equipment available, including a range of cardio and strength machines featuring the latest technological advances such as wireless connections, built-in TV and more.


Research constantly demonstrates that fitter children achieve better academic result.  Just 30 minutes of exercise per day is enough to deliver improved academic performance.  School gyms aren't just the solution to the increasing obesity problem in the country.  The right equipment in your school can also give your students the tools they need to work on specific fitness goals, improve their endurance and prepare them for the world as an adult.



Enhance learning

Physical activity restructures the brain for better performance, encouraging the faster absorption of information.  Exercise also spurs the development of nerve cells from hippocampus stem cells, allowing for the development of long-term memories.  Studies show that students with better fitness scores generally have higher test scores, because physical activity improves concentration and memory.


Create fewer student absences

Students frequently absent from class can't take full advantage of the learning experience.  High quality physical education with the support of excellent gym equipment strengthens endurance and improves the performance of the immune system.  The healthier your students are, the better attendance rates become.

Reduce stress, anxiety and panic disorders

Exercise doesn't just improve the physical health of students; it can improve mental health too.  Studies demonstrate that endorphins produced in the brain during exercise, contribute to a higher sense of wellbeing, improved confidence and reduced risk of anxiety and panic disorders.  Regular exercise also gives students a healthy coping mechanism for periods of stress such as exam times.


Improve behaviour in classrooms

Students have energy to burn off throughout the day.  While running around in the playground is an option, most are left with pent-up energy which can manifest in disruptive behaviour.  The right exercise equipment allows students to funnel that energy into better, healthy outcomes.


It's easy to blame technology and TV for the loss of interest in sports and exercise among today's youth.  However, most students are simply looking for inspiration to get them back into physical activity.  All students love the opportunity to use the latest technology and equipment.  Having a great school gym for students to be proud of will get them excited about exercising again.
