Outdoor fitness playground: a new step in exercise
How can you introduce children to a new side of physical movement that instills the habits of a happy, healthy lifestyle? A commercial fitness playground looks similar to the play equipment they're used to, but it presents new, irresistibly fun challenges that flex every muscle.
Fitness playground equipment provides school-aged kids and teens with daily exercise opportunities that improve motor, mental and cognitive function. Older kids can burn off energy during gym classes, where outdoor fitness playgrounds support school PE programs. A kids fitness playground reinforces the message that exercise can be a good time, and it's fun made even better when you're enjoying the fresh air and sunshine!
The range of commercial fitness playgrounds consists of sit-up benches, obstacle courses, leg lifts, and pull-up bars; all equipment you'd find in an indoor facility.

What are the benefits of an outdoor Fitness Playground?
Early establishment of physical activity habits is critical to a child's overall health. Studies have found a direct link between the decline in American children’s free play over the past half century to the increase in mental health problems. Through physical activity, children improve their strength, coordination, and balance; all necessary motor skills.
As children grow older, a playground that's adequately challenging can still be attractive, especially if it's set away from the younger kids' play area. Challenging playground structures will be even more popular if they are equipped with social hangout spots. Still, we are seeing a trend where older kids look to adult fitness and more challenging levels of exercise, making an outdoor fitness playground a perfect solution.
Outdoor Fitness Playgrounds for Schools
Free play is most important in childhood, so offering "play" options in fitness at schools makes for a smooth transition. Physical training, strength and cardio become more important in adolescence, and research also suggests that tweens actually do like to play. That's why we recommend a combination of challenging play systems, like our Corocord™ rope playgrounds, in your kids fitness playground to cater to all physical levels and needs. This range of fitness playground equipment is just as good as our fitness range for adults, but specifically certified for playgrounds. This makes them particularly great for older students wanting to feel more mature, as they aren't necessarily "playing."
Adaptable Fitness and Exercise Equipment
Children's playground equipment for fitness works well for schools or institutions. Because of their modular design, they can be easily customized. A large complex set for PE classes at a school will look different than a small community center aiming to increase youth physical activity. That's why we see our kids fitness playgrounds as a great solution for a variety of locations - parks, recreation centers, and public spaces - not just because they are resistant, durable, and safe but also because they are visually interesting and appealing. Make a bold statement or pay homage to the local team with our variety of color options.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Fitness Playgrounds safe?
Of course. Commercial-grade fitness playground equipment complies with stringent Canadian safety standards and is certified explicitly for playgrounds. Made of the highest quality commercial-grade materials, KOMPAN's fitness playground equipment is safe from a practical perspective, not just on paper. The pieces on an outdoor fitness playground are slip-resistant and with a comfortable grip, and the fall heights are suitable for children and are installed with safety surfacing.
Are Fitness Playgrounds for preschoolers?
We don't suggest it, as the fitness playground equipment is recommended for ages 8 and older.
Is a kids fitness playground customizable?
A fitness playground for kids is made of freestanding units, meaning you can pick the elements of your choosing. By offering the same color options as our adult fitness range, you can make a bold statement or match team colors.
