Cross Training Equipment

Cross-Training is a universal form of exercise. The award-winning fitness range has been designed as open structures and provides the opportunity for Australians to complete functional training exercises with the support of suspension trainers, pull-up bars, free weights and parallel bars. Central to Cross Systems is the scalability of the resistance, allowing users of all ages and abilities to train in accordance with their individual fitness levels.

The different frames can stand alone or be placed as joined structures, which are ideal for group training and is a key motivator to encourage communities to come together to exercise in the great outdoors. 

In 2017, the Cross Training Systems won the Good Design Award in Australia and the European Product Design Award.

Benefits of functional fitness training

1. Inclusive for all fitness abilities

Functional fitness is a diverse way of training that focuses on someone’s overall fitness level. It’s a highly adaptable way to exercise as users can alter the difficulty of their exercises as they progress. When using a KOMPAN multifunction outdoor gym station, users can perform a wide range of movements at varying difficulty levels. If they are just starting out, the user may choose an exercise position that is easier for them. The next time they work out, they may undertake the same exercise in an alternate position to build up the intensity. That’s the beauty of functional fitness – while the equipment remains the same, the user is in control of how challenging their workout is.

2. Reduced risk of injury

When exercise is too challenging, it puts a lot of stress on the joints and muscle groups. This can leave users susceptible to injury. However, the intuitive nature of cross training allows users to change their workout intensity to fit how they feel that day. For example, if someone’s upper body muscle groups feel sore, they can lower the challenge of the exercise and use an outdoor training station for recovery instead. Functional fitness means users can access the equipment in whichever way suits them best, helping to reduce the risk of injury.

3. Improve Functional Movements

Functional movements and functional strength are aspects of fitness people use day-to-day. Most conventional weightlifting exercises do not feature functional movements, meaning that while specific muscle groups may improve, the user’s general strength and fitness remains the same. An outdoor functional training station encourages users to perform variations of movements they do every day, but with different levels of intensity to improve overall strength and endurance.

Why choose KOMPAN's outdoor functional training stations?

Not all outdoor fitness products are made equally. An outdoor gym is an important investment for your community, and you need to be sure the equipment is up to scratch. This is where KOMPAN comes in. At KOMPAN, we are dedicated to delivering high quality kit that enables users to achieve an effective workout comparable to an indoor gym. Tried and tested at our Fitness Institute in Denmark, KOMPAN’s cross training systems are designed to withstand the test of time. You can rest assured that when you choose KOMPAN for your outdoor gym training station, you are receiving a product that will continue to bring value for years to come.

Key features of KOMPAN’s functional training stations include:

  • Hardwearing Materials: From hot dip galvanized steel to UV stabilized PES, KOMPAN’s outdoor training stations are crafted from durable materials to resist excessive use, extreme weather conditions, and vandalism attempts. For extra peace of mind, we offer industry-leading warranties on all outdoor fitness equipment.

  • Ergonomic Features: Exercise is not one-size-fits-all, which is why KOMPAN’s multifunction outdoor gym stations have ergonomic features to accommodate users of various shapes, sizes, and abilities. Our suspension trainer boasts three handle lengths for a comfortable experience regardless of user height, and our magnetic bells can be used in varying different positions to suit beginners and experts alike. These are just a few examples of the ergonomic choices we make when creating our outdoor fitness kit.

Our products offer a range of exercises which are supported by our interactive sign boards and the KOMPAN Fit app, which is downloadable via the App Store or Google Play. Through this app, users can unlock the full potential of KOMPAN’s outdoor workout stations. Take our Cross Training Combi 1 for example – with one piece of kit, users can perform 36 different exercises!

  • Safety-Assured Design: User wellbeing is paramount here at KOMPAN. We make sure that all our outdoor fitness equipment is compliant with EN16630 regulations, and our expert team in Denmark undertakes extensive product testing to deliver a safe and secure exercise experience for all.

Frequently asked questions about our Outdoor Cross-Training Equipment

How weather resistant is the equipment, and can I train in any conditions?

KOMPAN's Cross Training systems are incredibly durable and manufactured from robust materials. Meaning fitness equipment can be placed in any environment. 

Do I need instruction on how to get the most out of the equipment?

No, it is very intuitive; however, guidance from the KOMPAN Fitness Application can take your fitness equipment to the next level. 

Why do I feel better after an open-air workout session?

You answer the question in your question. Open air is very much the key. It helps clear your lungs. No amount of filtering can clean the atmosphere indoors to replicate fresh air. Indoor air often has a suboptimal balance of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, especially in enclosed rooms with little or poor ventilation. Of course, the positioning of the outdoor features is paramount to creating the perfect result. That opens the debate about which is better, sea air or mountain air. Mountain air contains less oxygen than air at lower altitudes, so breathing it causes the heart to beat faster and the body to burn more energy. A handful of studies have found that athletes training at high altitudes tend to lose weight. Sea air is really beneficial. The bracing climate by the sea is good for the respiratory organs and the skin, but also improves circulation and strengthens the body's defences.

What is a magnetic bell, and how does it work? 

The Magnetic Bell comes in three weights, 6, 9 and 12 kilos, and it moves freely up and down an aluminium post. The inner core contains magnets that create resistance, so the faster you move, the greater the resistance. Users can complete many forms of exercise routines with this unique feature, such as weighted squats, lunges, push press, calf raises and bent-over row, 

What happens if you drop the bell?

When dropped it accelerates but the magnets slow it down through creating greater resistance.

What colour options are available for KOMAN's outdoor fitness products?

KOMPAN has eight standard colours, but we offer the opportunity to customise the equipment to match your project vision. 

What is the target group?

Cross Training systems have been specifically made for a universal appeal from beginners who can choose to start at their own level. Elite athletes can also set their own level. 

Does KOMPAN's cross-training enable social interaction? 

Our cross-training systems are designed to enable people to train side-by-side. For trainers, this means a fast overview, enabling them to offer support and guidance where needed. Besides that, our sites are installed with breakout facilities for rest periods and social interaction.

Can cross-training systems be used for professional purposes? 

Our cross-training solutions are designed to provide therapists, and other health specialists access to equipment that is comparable to commercial gym equipment.
