When we formed PFA we knew donating equipment would be vital as schools need a way to allow students to develop the skill level to pass fitness tests. We had planned to buy existing fitness equipment already being manufactured for schools and were surprised to learn most equipment was not recommended for use with children under the age of 12. We saw that as bolting the gate after the horse got out. We needed children exercising safely and correctly as early as grade one. Therefore, working with Craig Cunningham, M.S. UCLA, who has planned playground sites since 1963, a new type of equipment was developed exclusively for PFA. The PFA equipment is specifically designed to address all the deficient areas where children fail fitness tests. Addressing upper body, lower body, abdominal strength, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility.This is a freestanding structure of seven work out areas permanently installed outdoors on the school grounds.

Many of the stations are built at a pitched angle which allows children as early as grade one to use the apparatus safely and correctly however also enables use for children of all ages and adults as well. Many schools open their campus after hours and weekends as sort of a free health club for the community.This equipment is royal blue and cardinal red. It is aluminum steel and platisol coated which prevents the metal from conducting temperature. It does not heat in the summer or chill in the winter. The bars are lightly textured with prevents little hands from slipping off and improves the comfort and grip. It is custom built for PFA by Landscape Structures Inc. This company ranks number one not just in the U.S., but globally for safety and quality. You simply can not get higher quality equipment.The equipment is used during the school day in tandem with the PFA curriculum that provides a huge variety of activities that interact with the equipment.The games are fun for the students and allow the equipment to become a release time activity as well as a physical education lesson.This equipment is not for sale. It is only donated to schools with have demonstrated a clear commitment to integrate the curriculum and entire fitness in education experience into their school plan. Equipment does not get kids fit and form positive attitudes about lifestyle habits. People do.
