Outdoor Functional Training & Gym Stations


At KOMPAN, we’re on a mission to change the face of outdoor fitness equipment. Our latest range of functional fitness equipment has been scientifically developed by industry experts at our Fitness Institute to deliver an effective and well-rounded workout.

 

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL FITNESS TRAINING?

Functional fitness training, also known as cross training, is a type of exercise centered around body movements that are commonly used in everyday life. Key examples of functional movements include pushing, pulling, and squatting. The intention of cross training is to improve strength and endurance in a way that benefits the user’s ability to complete daily tasks. Functional exercises often engage several major muscle groups at once, making it a fantastic way to strengthen the entire body. Dedicated cross training equipment, such as a functional training station, can help users of all abilities achieve a successful workout.

 

THE RISE OF OUTDOOR TRAINING STATIONS

Historically, people may participate in functional training at home or within a gym setting. However, with more people now choosing to exercise outside, outdoor workout stations have risen in popularity in local communities. From parks to recreational centres, installing a multifunction outdoor gym station can provide a dedicated safe space for users to complete their functional fitness workouts. KOMPAN offers an extensive range of outdoor fitness training stations to suit a range of ability levels, including magnetic bells, pull up bars and suspension trainers. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of outdoor fitness equipment, which is why many of our products are designed to be accessible via wheelchair.


BENEFITS OF FUNCTIONAL FITNESS TRAINING

1. Inclusive for all fitness abilities

Functional fitness is a diverse way of training that focuses on someone’s overall fitness level. It’s a highly adaptable way to exercise as users can alter the difficulty of their exercises as they progress. When using a KOMPAN multifunction outdoor gym station, users can perform a wide range of movements at varying difficulty levels. If they are just starting out, the user may choose an exercise position that is easier for them. The next time they work out, they may undertake the same exercise in an alternate position to build up the intensity. That’s the beauty of functional fitness – while the equipment remains the same, the user is in control of how challenging their workout is.

 

2. Reduced risk of injury

When exercise is too challenging, it puts a lot of stress on the joints and muscle groups. This can leave users susceptible to injury. However, the intuitive nature of cross training allows users to change their workout intensity to fit how they feel that day. For example, if someone’s upper body muscle groups feel sore, they can lower the challenge of the exercise and use an outdoor training station for recovery instead. Functional fitness means users can access the equipment in whichever way suits them best, helping to reduce the risk of injury.

 

3. Improve Functional Movements

Functional movements and functional strength are aspects of fitness people use day-to-day. Most conventional weightlifting exercises do not feature functional movements, meaning that while specific muscle groups may improve, the user’s general strength and fitness remains the same. An outdoor functional training station encourages users to perform variations of movements they do every day, but with different levels of intensity to improve overall strength and endurance.
