Starting again with an outdoor gym, a need that now, thousands of fitness operators feel is vital. But how do we do it ?
In Italy the new DPCM, has inflicted a further month of stop to the reopening of the gyms and to the Boxes of CrossFit® and the wait to reopen in safety has become endless.
Almost a year after the start of this pandemic, tens of thousands of sporting activities have closed their doors, without having a clear and precise idea of when they can reopen.
What to do now? How can we share together trying to comply with all the rules of conduct useful to combat the spread of the virus?

The imminent arrival of summer offers a glimmer of light to all fitness operators who have had their activities closed for months. In fact, the possibility of training outdoors could for the moment create a situation of shared security, where you can train, while maintaining the right distance in compliance with the rules.
But how to do that? What equipment do we need to build an outdoor training space that meets certain safety standards?
Guide to the outdoor gym
In this article we will try to give the guidelines to create an outdoor training space trying to contain as much as possible the costs of realization. Follow us in this step by step guide.
The space to build your outdoor gym
If you are lucky and have an outside space or are restoring your gym, realizing your outdoor gym will definitely be easier. The only precautions to follow are to make sure that you have enough space to maintain the correct distances of security required by the various regional DPCM.
By default, we can say that a minimum space per customer should be at least 9 m2, essential to allow you to train safely and protect you and your customers.
So if you have an outdoor space that measures for example 19 m in length X 7 m in width, you can easily create an outdoor space to train 10 people while maintaining a more than reasonable distance between one customer and the other.
The outdoor floor of the gym
To make your outdoor gym you have to have rubber floor in the gym. Will this option allow you to effectively protect the background of your training space, equipment and especially your customers from accidents?
Which gym floor to choose
To create a quality backing that effectively protects, you need a quality SBR rubber floor like this. Our Royal Gym Rubber Flooring offers unrivaled protection and is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. The available formats are as different as the thickness.
Once we have chosen our gym flooring, we can switch to “furnish” our spaces with useful equipment to allow our customers to train. If you own an elliptical cross trainer’s box, the choice must necessarily fall on an outdoor RIG structure resistant to atmospheric agents.
Our outdoor rigs are certified and manufactured with a special finish that effectively protects against the elements. One of our best-selling outdoor gym rigs and our Mighty Outdoor Fort model.
Mighty Outdoor Fort
Our best-selling outdoor rig has 4 standard positions (275cm) designed for pull-ups and barbell training, while the central part is higher (360cm) with 4 branches to hang 2 pairs of rings and 2 climbing ropes. All these accessories are already included in the price.
In case you want to add more training options and make it more interesting, the structure is compatible with all accessories for Mighty Rig of the Kingsbox range. The central part also consists of two Kingsbox scoreboards, so that all your customers know that you have a high quality Rig produced and designed in Europe.

As you can see, an unused outdoor space could become a valuable ally to allow you to carry on your business safely, by training your customers with due distances.

Royal Olympic Disc Pack
The Olympic Kingsbox Bumpers are black discs, with a diameter of 450 mm (the diameter of the hole is 50.4 mm) and are therefore compatible with all types of Olympic barbells.
Made of rubber, they have iron inserts, which make them sturdy and resistant to all types of falls. The high density rubber, which passes through a special vulcanization process, allows these discs a low and controlled dead bounce. The controlled and low rebound ensures long life to the discs, prevents damage to the floor and equipment and helps to avoid injuries to those who use them.
The ring of the central hole of the disc is made of steel that is fused with the rubber, which allows us to bind the two elements firmly together.
What distinguishes our discs from those of the competition is the fact that we thought of making the discs a little thinner so as to allow you to load more weight on a single barbell. Our discs are suitable for functional training, olympic weightlifting, and functional and all disciplines that require durable and reliable discs.
In addition, the weight lifting using rubber discs is much quieter and therefore more suitable for home training.
