Increasing student health and fitness

WillPlay has sparked the imagination of its users with its new Will-Fit and Urban Warrior ranges, with school specific designs aimed at changing the way we view fitness and play in schools.

Studies have shown that increased physical activity leads to better health and mental fitness outcomes in children. When it comes to physical activity, WillPlay explains that less than 20% of Australian children aged 5-17 are meeting the national daily physical activity guidelines of accumulating at least 60 minutes of moderate vigorous physical activity (MVPA).

Well planned physical activity ensures students are meeting or exceeding the recommended levels of MVPA. It can also improve student’s core strength, which has been linked to increased educational outcomes through simple improvements to posture and increased attention spans.

Getting students moving in the great outdoors is what the Will-Fit range is all about. Developed to promote efficient and effective movements, Will-Fit is designed to increase health and fitness. Manufactured from powder-coated G304 stainless steel, the range not only looks great, but is durable and low maintenance; with options suitable for different ages and fitness levels.

A well-designed fitness area that incorporates dynamic exercise equipment, as well as activities to develop balance and coordination, assist in creating the basic building blocks for a fit and active adulthood.

The new Urban Warrior range has been designed to bring out the little Ninja in all of us and allows schools to benchmark and track fitness outcomes in students from Prep to High School. This range doubles as conventional play equipment for use outside of class time but comes into its own for a fully structured fitness program.
