A state-of-the-art gym-in-a-box has been unveiled at Clevedon School.
The 20ft fully-kitted ‘FitCube’ gym will further support the Covid19 fitness recovery programme being carried out by the academy.
Students, staff and the community will benefit from regular healthy gym sessions - with the community to benefit from five free sessions with a professional fitness instructor.
The FitCube was funded by a successful grant bid awarded by North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) Grant Programme and means that classes will be added to the curriculum.
The wider community will also be invited to join in with subsidised classes in this revolutionary outdoor fitness.
Head of PE, Chris Wise said: “This is brilliant news for students, staff and the wider community.
“This gym will be extremely popular and will allow us to host classes during the curriculum, after school, and also for the community at large."
