Outdoor Fitness


Re-thinking, reflecting, refreshing

Most of the great sports of the world - football, soccer, tennis, baseball, golf, rugby - have one thing in common.  They are played outdoors. It’s not just about the space, but the atmosphere where these sports take place. Fresh air is an invaluable asset in making the body perform better, a natural partner to exercise and feeling good.

Sure, with commitment you can get fit in a gym, but, stuck inside, you miss out on the extra challenge and benefits that nature provides. The sun on your back, the breeze on your face, even the refreshing drop of rain, turns vigor into invigorating. 

KOMPAN’s extensive range of outdoor fitness equipment is the result of collaborative research between a team of in-house fitness experts and external industry experts. They have taken their observations, studies and recommendations to engineers who have responded with the first series of equipment that performs to the level of indoor equipment, outdoors. Plus, products are supported by the KOMPAN Sports and Fitness app which helps guide, mentor and measure performance.   

 


There are numerous benefits to outdoor exercise.  Fresh air increases the flow of oxygen improving blood pressure and heart rate while making the digestive system more efficient and aiding in dieting.  Being outside makes you more active and attentive even when you return 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 also help you produce vitamin D from the sun, a necessary nutrient for optimal health!

On straight health improvement, oxygen helps white blood cells do their job by fighting bacteria and germs, dilating the lungs and helping to clean them. Let's not forget happiness. 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.

 The health benefits of outdoor fitness continue to be revealed and now it is easier than ever to create an outdoor fitness solution suitable for the needs of your community. You can easily combine products yourself or chose from our solutions based on best practice.
