Wooden outdoor gym equipment – robinia fitness by KOMPAN

Are you looking to create an outdoor timber gym that's suitable for most workout disciplines and attracts users from all age groups and backgrounds? 

KOMPAN's timber gym equipment is made from durable Robinia wood, which is the most suitable wood type for outdoor fitness zones. In addition, this type of wood has its own natural preservatives and oils, making it highly resistant to the heavy impact of the outdoor elements. 

This ensures that your wooden outdoor gym is not only highly functional and visually appealing but that it also maintains that great look for years to come. Because of its durability and high resistance, our wooden outdoor fitness equipment made from Robinia is close to being maintenance-free and can last for many years in the outdoors. 

Our portfolio includes wooden outdoor gym equipment from two fitness disciplines popular in the '70s and '80s – namely Street Workout and Obstacle Courses. The typical equipment for these disciplines has been known for having an urban steel look throughout the years. But with KOMPAN's Robinia Fitness line, we have made those products available in wood, making it possible to fit your favourite street workout and obstacle course equipment into a nature-inspired outdoor fitness zone.

High-quality wooden outdoor gym equipment

Attracted by the fresh air, beautiful natural surroundings, and the opportunity to work out, people across the world are moving outside to be active. Regardless of whether you want your wooden exercise equipment to fit into a natural environment or want to bring nature into an urban environment, Robinia wood is the right choice for such equipment. Robinia wood is a very strong and long-lasting material with a very high level of natural oils. Thus, Robinia wood makes for very durable exercise equipment which are close to maintenance-free and able to last for many years. If you are going to climb the monkey bars, why not add the sensation of tree and wood?

KOMPAN's outdoor fitness equipment in wood

Today, we produce two of our outdoor fitness equipment products lines in wood which is comparable to the equipment you would find indoors. The Obstacle Course is designed to bring joy to people of all ages and abilities. It challenges and develops both mental and physical strength. Scalable difficulty levels make it work for both young or old - and strong or unfit. One obstacle course, one objective - but many routes to get there. The Double Overhead Ladder, more commonly known as ""The Monkey Bars"", is a popular challenge on the Obstacle Course due to the various exercises it offers. Besides the climbing, it also offers space for 8 people to perform pull-up exercises or to attach suspension trainers for a full-body workout.

The Street Workout line of products offers a comprehensive fitness system based on Calisthenics. These products provide a considerable degree of flexibility in every piece of equipment, but the bigger the setup, the greater the opportunities. Street workout equipment is also ideal for ‘pop-in’ exercises, although it doesn´t take much planning to create a complete circuit training session. The Combi 5 Robinia combination package holds all the essential elements for you to create complete outdoor workouts. With ten different workout stations in one, this combination package offers a superior street workout and callisthenics experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Do outdoor gyms work?

While many outdoor facilities are promoted as gyms, they do not provide weight- or resistance training equipment but rather focus on improving mobility. This main distinction has created a negative image of the idea of outdoor gyms, portraying them as ineffective, at least compared to indoor gyms. However, we at KOMPAN have developed true outdoor fitness equipment suitable for both high-volume callisthenics and weight training. And the latest addition to our product line is those very same products made out of durable and long-lasting Robinia wood. Additionally, outdoor gyms benefit from being in nature and enjoying the fresh air, in contrast to enclosed - and sometimes crowded - spaces like indoor gyms.

2) Is wood a good material for outdoor fitness equipment?

As a general rule, many durable hardwood types are great for outdoor fitness equipment. However, through research and over 50 years of experience, we have found Robinia wood to be one of the most durable wood materials for most types of outdoor equipment, which is also confirmed by external research. We use Robinia wood throughout all our product series - such as our natural playground equipment - on thousands of projects around the globe, all of which ensures that this is a quality material.

Other than the natural look and feel, Robinia wood is also often chosen for being a very strong and long-lasting material, with a very high level of natural oils. Thus, Robinia wood makes very durable fitness areas close to maintenance-free and can last for many years.
