What is Real Fitness?
How do you define real fitness? It is a piece of fitness equipment that may not look conventional. But, when used, has incredible physiological benefits.
When beginning to explore a lot of outdoor fitness gear, our team took a close look at Asia. Especially China, which has some of the most high-tec fitness equipment in the world. This is where a lot of other outdoor gym equipment takes design inspiration from. We found that while these designs may be effective they’re not built for outdoor exercise.
Unlike other suppliers, our equipment is not built to look the same as in an indoor gym. The reason our range is real fitness equipment is that it has the functionality not only the look. Don’t let traditional designs trick you. Outdoor fitness needs a bespoke approach. This is how we supply real fitness equipment.
Poor outdoor gyms will have different apparatus with less resistance and poor ergonomics. If it does not engage the user, the equipment will be demotivating and have negative effects. At KOMPAN, we only want our real fitness range to have a positive impact.

How do you know when cardio equipment is going to be effective?
Cardio is a crucial part of any exercise routine. To get benefits from your cardio workout you should be working at 60%-65% of your maximum heart rate. You can measure this without any high-tech equipment, it’s the intensity that disrupts your speech.
When is strength equipment effective?
Strength training is all about the level of resistance applied. If you are working against the resistance of at least 60% of the users’ strength. The rule of thumb for measuring this percentage is a weight that you cannot lift more than 15 times in a row.
