KOMPAN played a big part in helping the council choose which equipment to have – how to get different muscle groups targeted and ensured there would be equipment for the whole community to use.
The council wanted to make sure that
A) there was a range of equipment that was good quality, and
B) that there was variable resistance and weights so that it could be adjusted for all members of the community.
They wanted to ensure that it covered aerobics, weightlifting, and balancing, as well as cardio.
A combination of strength, cardio, and agility equipment for all. The gym features ‘Stay Fit’ products, designed for the older generation who perhaps are a bit uneasy on their feet. The products promote healthy balancing and low intensity usage, both of which are more conducive to flexibility.
This, coupled with strength items, trampolines, and bikes for cardiovascular workouts means there is a real mix of exciting equipment to use.
The local community are very happy with the new gym, the trampolines are especially popular, and the APP with instructions is proving to be a real hit with those who are less confident in a traditional gym situation. All the equipment is well made, low maintenance, and easy to keep clean, everything the council wanted.

“It’s just lovely to be outside and exercising, and the fact that it’s local and you can use it whenever you want is amazing. It’s free, and always open, which is really useful because you can just turn up and get started, and the instructions and app are all there to help you. I’m really pleased to have it in the village.”
