Why outdoor fitness and gym equipment
Globally, 33% of the population is inactive and sedentary activity is one of the leading factors for global mortality. Exercising outdoors provides many health benefits, including mental and physical well-being, combats socioeconomic inequalities, and promotes socialisation and inclusion, which ultimately reduces Australian Government healthcare costs.
In addition, COVID-19 encouraged Australians to get active outdoors, emphasising the need for access to high-quality and functional outdoor fitness sites is critical for the parks and leisure industry. Planners, Designers and Governments need to consider this when designing community recreational facilities.

Park exercise equipment
It's no secret that health and fitness levels within Australia have declined, causing obesity levels to increase. Australia is a beautiful country with lots of sunshine, fresh air and open green space. Yet, many of us spend hours sitting indoors and often in front of a screen. However, research indicates that more and more people prefer to engage in outdoor workouts or fitness activities. Exposure to fresh air, natural environments and sunlight increases levels of Vitamin D, and helps boost serotonin and post-exercise endorphins levels, making free outdoor fitness parks increasingly more popular.
Besides the physical benefits of exercising outside, park fitness equipment makes exercise accessible, affordable, social and more enjoyable. Outdoor gyms are a proven strategy to activate communities.
KOMPAN is passionate about creating happier and healthier Australian communities. Through years of research and development, we have created high-quality, accessible, durable, and safe park fitness equipment that improves strength and cardio levels and offers outdoor rehabilitation solutions in the great outdoors. We also understand the importance of accessibility when it comes to providing quality outdoor fitness equipment for parks and public spaces. Carefully chosen combinations of training equipment and surfacing allow for hundreds of different exercises and programs for all fitness levels, making it possible for everyone to stay active and healthy. You can learn more about how to design inclusive outdoor fitness sites or check out our fitness planning page to see more about how to build an outdoor gym.
Safety is paramount when placing outdoor exercise equipment in public park environments. It needs to be safe for the intended use and designed to eliminate the risks associated with potential misuse. KOMPAN conducts rigorous risk and design assessments; all outdoor gym equipment is designed to comply with The Australian Fitness Standards: AS16330:2021.

What are more added benefits of outdoor workouts
With outdoor fitness stations and cardio equipment, numerous benefits are immediately available. Fresh air increases the flow of oxygen, improving blood pressure and heart rate. This additional air flow also assists the digestive system, making it more efficient and aiding in dieting. Utilising outdoor fitness equipment for parks goes a long way in creating healthy communities helping users to support individual fitness goals alongside fellow participants. Being outside, especially among like-minded people, inspires a more active mindset, even upon returning indoors. Just ask a school teacher how much easier it is to conduct a class after recess! More oxygen increases brain performance, improves concentration skills and provides more energy. In addition, being outside on a good day will help to produce vitamin D from the sun, a necessary nutrient for optimal health and immune support!
On straight health improvement, oxygen and fresh air help white blood cells fight bacteria and germs, dilating the lungs and helping to clean them. Outdoor fitness equipment in public parks can also help make people happier! Endorphin levels increase when we are out in the open. An American study indicated that stress levels were reduced by 71% by simply walking in nature.
The health benefits of outdoor fitness systems continue to be revealed, and now it is easier than ever to create healthy outdoor spaces utilising outdoor fitness equipment that is flexible, durable and suitable for all fitness levels.
