What are the benefits of KOMPAN outdoor workout equipment
Supports Physical Fitness: To improve cardiovascular fitness, the UK government recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise per week. Most outdoor gym equipment on the market lacks the resistance needed to achieve this level of workout, but KOMPAN’s outdoor fitness equipment has been scientifically proven to get even the fittest of athletes into their maximum heart rate training zone. Cardio products such as our outdoor stationary elliptical machine are developed to deliver a progressive, effective workout that can help support the physical fitness of exercise amateurs and professionals alike! You can check out all our research on outdoor fitness here.
Supports Cognitive Well-being: Various medical institutions, including the Mental Health Foundation, have well-documented the impact of physical activity on cognitive well-being. However, exposure to the great outdoors has been found to deliver its own dose of psychological medicine! Scientific studies have shown that green spaces can lower stress levels and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. KOMPAN’s outdoor fitness equipment combines the feel-good endorphins of exercise with the psychological benefits of nature, helping to support cognitive well-being.
Supports Active Ageing: As we age, our bodies become less efficient in performing the daily tasks that were once so simple, like going up the stairs or walking the dog. Designed to cater to all ability levels, KOMPAN’s outdoor fitness equipment is a great way for the elderly to keep fit and healthy. Products such as our City Bike offer adjustable resistance, allowing older users to exercise and progress at a pace which suits them. We even have a dedicated StayFit range for seniors, which has been scientifically developed to support mobility, balance, and flexibility!
KOMPAN’s range of commercial outdoor fitness equipment results from conjunctive research between our in-house fitness experts at our Fitness Institute and the University of Southern Denmark. They have taken their observations, studies, and recommendations to engineers who have developed outdoor exercise equipment that performs at the same level as their indoor counterparts. All products are supported by the KOMPAN Sports and Fitness app, which helps guide, mentor, and measure performance.
KOMPAN is a company that understands the importance of accessibility when it comes to providing quality outdoor fitness equipment for parks and public spaces.

Why take your workout outdoors?
Think about some of the great sports of the world: football, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf - just to name a few. What do they have in common? They are all played outdoors! Fresh air is an invaluable asset in making the body perform better, the natural partner to exercise and feeling good.

Turn vigour into invigorating by allowing users to feel the sun on their backs, the breeze on their faces, and even a refreshing drop of rain.
With outdoor fitness stations and outdoor cardio equipment, numerous benefits become 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 aids 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 schoolteachers how much easier it is to conduct a class after recess! More oxygen results in increased 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 a straight health improvement, oxygen and fresh air help white blood cells fight bacteria and germs, dilating the lungs and helping 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 in 71% by simply walking in nature.

Can children use outdoor fitness equipment?
While outdoor exercise equipment is often freely accessible by the public, most products are not intended for the use of children. Health and safety considerations are incredibly important, so KOMPAN designs outdoor gym equipment for adults and adolescents from 13 years upwards. For younger children, we believe play equipment provides a much more enjoyable, safe, and engaging way to stay active.
