Streetwise Route to Optimal Fitness
The products in the Street Workout series are seemingly simple but offer a most comprehensive fitness system based on calisthenics. Utilizing bars of different sizes and formations, positions and heights, participants can attempt and perfect exercises from classic pullups to the extreme challenge of the human flag.
Lead by the unassuming Combi 1 Pro, the system grows through four ever more challenging variations to the fully inclusive Combi 5. Each level is an invitation for personal or social interaction with the common goal of getting fit. With calisthenics you bring one of the most vital pieces of equipment with you, your body. Using it as a counterbalance there are numerous exercises on the parallel, pull-up and push up bars, benches and the specialist features like the wide overhead ladder and the incline press.

Frequently asked questions about Calisthenics and Street workout
What is Calisthenics?
It is one of the oldest recognized, organized forms of exercise. The armies of Alexander the Great and the Spartans practiced it. It is a form of exercise that involves large muscle groups by running, standing, pushing and pulling and using your bodyweight as a tool or a counterbalance. Calisthenics is spelt with one ‘l’ in US English, but the programs and results are the same. Calisthenics comes from the ancient Greek meaning beautiful strength.
How many different combinations of equipment do we need for a full workout?
Calisthenics is based on simplicity and there is a huge degree of flexibility in each piece of equipment, but the more extensive the setup, the greater the opportunities. Street workouts are ideal for ‘pop-in’ exercises but with a little planning they can be used as circuit training sessions.
What is the most useful piece of street workout equipment?
This is a difficult question since a proper workout requires variety, however, pull up and parallel bars are not something that are easily replicated in the real world.
Is Street Workout all-weather?
The powder-coated surface is termed all-weather and the equipment might only be unusable in extreme conditions. Heat and freezing in the case of steel bars and poles and perhaps snow in the case of the surface.
What is the best surface?
The need is to have one that dampens movement upon landing. Pour-in-place rubber surfacing is flat and smooth and since it is an open surface, it drains quickly.
Benefits of outdoor calisthenics equipment
Improves Overall Strength: KOMPAN’s commercial street workout equipment is designed to be used for a multitude of calisthenics exercises, providing a well-rounded workout that supports muscular development. Traditional weights-based training focuses on isolated exercises that work one set of muscles at a time, but street workouts often feature compound calisthenic movements that activate various muscles simultaneously. The result is an effective full body workout that can improve overall strength.
Improves Cardiovascular Endurance: As well as supporting muscular strength, outdoor calisthenics equipment is great for cardiovascular endurance. Split squats and box jumps are just two of the many high-intensity exercises that can be performed using outdoor street workout equipment. These heart-pumping movements are a fantastic way to get users into their peak training zone, helping to improve cardiovascular endurance.
Improves Co-Ordination: Calisthenics exercises require a great amount of communication between the body and the brain. Each compound movement performed using commercial calisthenics equipment fires a series of triggers to the user’s central nervous system, which then signals muscles, tendons, and ligaments to respond in a specific order. How efficiently the body co-ordinates these signals will determine how successful the exercise is. Much like strength and endurance, co-ordination improves the more you work at it. Commercial street workout equipment provides a fun and challenging way for users to develop these skills.
Encourages Socialisation: The rising popularity of calisthenics means that commercial street workout equipment sites often attract large amounts of people. In turn, these fitness areas become a hub for community engagement. Users may challenge each other to street workout competitions - especially if the site has a built-in timer - and generally push each other to work that little bit harder. Installing outdoor calisthenics equipment is a great way to bring likeminded individuals together and encourage socialisation.
Who can use commercial Calisthenics equipment?
Outdoor calisthenics equipment offers a versatile workout for users of all fitness levels. However, there is a certain level of training knowledge needed to utilise the equipment effectively. Amateur exercisers may not know the full scale of exercises offered by commercial street workout equipment, whereas more experienced athletes are likely to understand how to achieve an effective full body workout. KOMPAN tackles this gap in knowledge by providing interactive sign boards that demonstrate a wide range of exercises that can be performed on the equipment. To provide additional support, we also have a FREE Sport & Fitness app which shows animated examples of how the exercises are performed. Together, these features make commercial calisthenics equipment accessible to both beginners and professionals alike.
