Essential fitness equipment for every in-company gym

Many companies nowadays recognize the importance of employee well-being and offer an in-company gym to promote a healthy lifestyle. These gyms provide employees with an easy and accessible way to stay active and fit. However, it is important to ensure that the in-company gym is equipped with the right fitness equipment so that employees can train effectively, challenge themselves, and have fun. In this blog post, we will discuss the essential fitness equipment that every in-company gym should have.

Strength training equipment for your in-company gym

Strength training is a crucial part of any fitness routine. Having the right equipment for strength training helps employees build and maintain muscle mass. This not only helps them lead fitter lives but also assists them in handling physically demanding work. For effective strength training, you need the following equipment:

  1. Barbells with weight plates: These are highly versatile and can be used for a wide range of exercises. They are particularly effective for compound exercises that target multiple muscle groups simultaneously, such as squats, bench presses, and deadlifts.
  2. If you want to make the most of your barbells and weight plates, you also need a rig or racks. The suitable option for your in-company gym depends on the available space and the number of employees who need to train simultaneously. For example, you can choose a complete Crossmaxx® XL Rig, Crossmaxx® Power Racks, or Crossmaxx® Half Racks. We are happy to assist you in determining the best option for your space!
  3. Dumbbells: Small but mighty, dumbbells are essential in any gym, including your in-company gym! They are easy to store, user-friendly, available in a wide range of weights, suitable for both beginners and advanced users, and enhance muscle activation and stability. If you're unsure about which weights to choose for your employees, feel free to contact us for advice.
  4. Kettlebells: Kettlebells add a lot of variety to training. They come in various weights and work well in limited spaces. You can perform a range of movements without requiring too much space. Examples include kettlebell swings, goblet squats, Turkish get-ups, kettlebell deadlifts, and more.
  5. Benches: Benches are also crucial in an in-company gym. A bench, also known as a fitness bench, is used for many strength exercises targeting both the upper and lower body. The bench allows you to maintain the proper position while sitting or lying down, enabling you to perform exercises correctly.

Cardio Equipment

Cardio machines are a must-have for any gym, and in-company gyms are no exception. Rowers, treadmills, and stationary bikes are all great options for cardiovascular training. These machines are user-friendly and suitable for a wide range of fitness levels. Additionally, they improve heart health, endurance, and overall fitness. They are also ideal for burning extra calories before, during, or after the workday. On our website, you can find options like the Crossmaxx® Runner PRO, Crossmaxx® Rower PRO, and Crossmaxx® Airbike PRO. The best choice among these cardio machines for your in-company gym depends on your personal preference and the available space. For instance, a rower takes up less space than a treadmill because it can be stored upright.

Flexibility and Mobility

In addition to strength and cardio, flexibility and mobility are important. They can help prevent injuries, both in the gym and in the workplace. Therefore, equipment such as resistance bands, foam rollers, mats, and fitness balls are valuable additions to any in-company gym. Foam rollers are ideal for muscle recovery and injury prevention. They can be used to massage sore muscles, improve blood circulation, and reduce muscle tension. Resistance bands help improve mobility and are perfect for warming up. They can also be used to make certain exercises easier (e.g., assisted pull-ups) or more challenging (e.g., banded deadlifts). Using fitness mats makes it more comfortable for employees to perform floor exercises.

Other accessories for your in-company gym

In addition to the mentioned equipment, there are several other accessories that can make the in-company gym experience more enjoyable and effective. For example, you can add a sound system to play music and keep employees motivated during their workouts. Mirrors can also be added to provide feedback on form and technique. Finally, a water cooler or hydration station can encourage employees to stay hydrated during their training sessions.

As you have read, in-company gyms are a great way to promote employee well-being, but it is important to ensure they are equipped with the right fitness equipment. If you want to transform a space in your building into an in-company gym but are unsure where to start, please contact us. We have helped set up many in-company gyms and can provide tailored advice!
