The First Prototype
After numerous prototypes, the first HELIOS multigym was developed for market and launched in the United States. This path to market was not easy because designing outdoor fitness equipment presents unique design challenges not found when creating indoor fitness equipment. Not only does outdoor fitness equipment need to deliver biomechanically correct exercise with durable construction like indoor fitness equipment, it also must be tamperproof, weatherproof and safe to use in unsupervised environments.
By incorporating this design criteria, the HELIOS multigym became a hit across a wide range of outdoor markets. HELIOS units have been installed by parks & rec departments, correctional facilities, military bases, pocket parks, corporate campuses, campgrounds, and Home Owners Associations around the world.
