The colour, the forms and the setting attract people to come and exercise
In the centre of Canberra, a new KOMPAN outdoor gym in Henry Rolland Park is considered an attraction. The combination of high tech, easy-to-use equipment and the great location overlooking Lake Burley Griffen, has immediately established the fitness site as a popular spot to get trim and fit.
The tall orange arches framing in the Cross Systems equipment from KOMPAN make people curious, and great functionality triggers activity right after. Placed centrally, where people live and commute, and more specifically right next to a path used by runners and cyclist, many people stop by.
Outdoor fitness, free of charge and always open
The equipment at Henry Rolland Park promotes cross-training for all ages and abilities. There is no minimum physical entry-level, everyone can use it; teenagers, mother groups, people from all backgrounds, tourists and of course fitness enthusiasts.
Pull up and parallel bars along with suspension trainers offer over 100 different exercises. The most popular exercises are visualized on big signs to assist users, but more inspiration can be found with the KOMPAN Sport & Fitness app. The app can monitor your training and help you find exercises for a personalized workout based on individual needs. Overall it is a fresh approach to fitness, one free of confining walls and grating subscriptions.
The app is really good, especially if you are confused about what you can do or how to do an exercise. It’s really detailed and good animation.
