SportAtrium presented exercise park at FSB 2023
Outdoor fitness concepts from a single source: SportAtrium is a young company that specialises in the design and implementation of outdoor fitness concepts. The new cooperation partner were represented at FSB, the International Trade Fair for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities, for the first time with a special event area from 24 to 27 October 2023.
SportAtrium presented a modern exercise park in Hall 10.1 and allowed trade fair visitors to experience its concepts first-hand. Other companies offered modern exercise concepts for urban spaces were also enrich the special event area with their solutions. The partners for the showcase included both FSB exhibitors and associations such as the Federal Association of Playground Equipment and Leisure Facilities Manufacturers (BSFH), the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) and the German sports club confederation Freiburger Kreis e.V.
SportAtrium is a visionary young company that has set itself the mission of making outdoor fitness more attractive for everyone. The growing demand for outdoor fitness facilities that are close to people’s homes is a megatrend – and not just since the coronavirus pandemic. Yet many offerings sadly fail to meet the needs of the core target groups. With its stand-alone, holistic concept, SportAtrium creates experience-oriented, close-to-nature training facilities based on evidence from sports science. The company offers everything from a single source, from the requirements analysis to construction, all the way through to inspections and maintenance. Fully automated access control creates many potential usage models for the sports facilities. It is always up to the operator to decide whether to make access free or chargeable or whether to opt for a sharing model with other stakeholders.
Sport in the open air: outdoor fitness facility in Karlsruhe
The 480-square-metre outdoor fitness facility operated by the sports club TSV Bulach opened on 22 April 2023. Designed by SportAtrium, the project was completed in under three months and offers diverse training opportunities in the heart of Karlsruhe for sports lovers.
Since its opening, growing numbers of people, including non-members, have been using the venue for full-body workouts in the fresh air. But the facility is not just ideal for those who engage in self-organised sports activities. The club offers a wide range of courses for beginners, advanced participants and senior citizens, including rehabilitation sports, with the aim of introducing a wide audience to the novel training opportunities.
SportAtrium’s simple, unstaffed operating concept is ideal for the volunteer-run club. It provides efficient and easy access control through a combination of a turnstile, a door with an electronic opener and a QR code reader paired with a member management system on the software side and an online store for purchasing one-hour passes.
