Partnerships for Schools has worked closely with The Great Outdoor Gym Company to secure the roll-out of adiZones across the country on school and other community sites, utilising resources from the cross-Government Co-location Fund programme. We have found them to be an exemplary delivery partner. They have managed contact with local authorities and other agencies to ensure the necessary ownership of the adiZone developments at local level, working with individuals to maximise the benefits of the developments to the whole community, and managed links with adidas directly to make the most of their marketing expertise and brand profile.
They have successfully embedded the learning secured through the first round of projects into later developments, and shared good practice on an ongoing basis. Working together, through the investment of £3m co-location funding, we will have delivered 40 adiZones, a significant legacy for many parts of the country ahead of London 2012, and a fantastic testament to the positive working relationship developed between TGOGC, adidas and PfS – a real “win-win” for all partners.

I can’t thank you enough for your time and for agreeing to install the tarmac path from the toddler play area to the adult gym at the great outdoor gym company’s cost, it looks amazing...fantastic job!
I am so pleased and impressed with the quality service we have had from yourselves and will definitely recommend your company to any future councils who are thinking of installing an outdoor gym.
Frodsham town council
I would like to say on behalf of TLC St James Ltd that we are extremely pleased with the outdoor gym equipment installed in August.
From my first telephone conversation with Dean (Head of Active Cities) and several meetings plus numerous emails later, your belief that replacing an uninspiring ball court with fitness equipment was the way to go proved to be right.
Your patience and friendly professionalism helped make the process easier for us.
Andrew (Quality Manager) prior to installation Dean introduced you to us and the service we received before, during and after installation has also been exemplary.
The feedback from residents and the service from TGOGC has all been positive.
Thank you to both of you!
St James Northampton
I would like to say how happy I am with the quality of the installation and equipment. It has raised a lot of interest from the students and staff and will be of great benefit to many of the students.
Thank you all for a swift and efficient response in providing this resource for our school.
Oscott Manor School
Having The Great Outdoor Gym Company equipment on our hospital grounds has been a great benefit to our patients. It has provided an opportunity for patients to focus on their physical health and wellbeing, with patients providing very positive feedback regarding the gym equipment.
Working with the team from TGOGC couldn’t have been easier, they were helpful in every way and were able to work around our specific needs when it came to the security and safety of our patients.
