Mile End gym was in desperate need of rejuvenation, and KOMPAN were the ones to help!
The council were looking through tender returns with some main points in mind; the gym area needed to be value for money, the kit had to be good quality and stand out from the competitors, and give users the option for resistance, so that amateurs and professionals could both use it. The area needed to also give users different types of work outs, whether it was cardio, weights, or strength training, it needed to cater for all.
What many people are looking for now is the performance, quality, and functionality of indoor gym equipment, in an outdoor setting.
Opening in the middle of the pandemic meant that a lot of people were looking for new or innovative ways of working out, since the indoor gyms were shut. Once the gym was installed it had over 100 visitors on the first day, a great thing for the council to see what used to be a deteriorating gym area, become full of life again.
What’s more, the equipment comes with full interactive instruction boards, so even if you’ve never seen a piece of equipment before, you can simply scan the QR code on a smart phone and easily follow the workout plan videos.

“This is our flagship site because of the location and size of the gym, so we wanted to get it right. It was about the quality of the kit and this really hits the spot.
