For whom is the Fitness Cabinet Gymfurn Epeius suitable?
Ideal basis for functional training
The Gymfurn Epeius Fitness Cabinet is basically suitable for all those people who are interested in fitness training in their own four walls, who are looking for a functional and elegant home gym solution, and who want to incorporate variation possibilities in their training.
Functional strength training with Gymfurn Epeius is aimed at a wide range of target groups, ideally with previous knowledge of functional training, bodyweight training or free weight training.
This type of training requires a basic level of coordination skills, especially controlled body tension during the execution of the exercise.
If you are completely inexperienced in this area, we recommend that you receive appropriate instruction from trained personnel – such as a qualified personal trainer in your area – before you start training.
Training for all levels
Training with the Gymfurn Epeius Fitness Cabinet and the training equipment included in the Advanced and Pro packages is explicitly not a special training for top athletes.
For almost every exercise there are progression and degression options, i.e. variation options to make the exercise harder or easier. This is usually done by varying the weight or resistance, or by changing your body position towards the exercise device. Thus, this training is also suitable for beginners with the appropriate knowledge of the correct exercise execution.
Achieve your #Couplegoals
Due to the variability of the training equipment, the possible applications are extremely versatile and are therefore perfectly suited for households in which people with different performance levels or sporting backgrounds are looking for a varied platform for training at home. With the right amount of space, two or three people can work out in a circuit, each using different exercises and equipment.
What are the dimensions of the Fitness Cabinet and what are the space requirements?
Gymfurn Epeius Fitness Cabinet stands on a base of 120 x 55 cm / 47 x 22” and has a height of 220 cm / 87”. When open, it has a maximum width of 244 cm / 96” (doors open 180°) and a maximum depth of 112 cm / 44” (90° angle door opening).
To fully perform a pull-up, we recommend a ceiling height of at least 245 cm / 97”. In case of sloping ceilings, please include the opening radius of both doors in the required ceiling height.
For a comfortable workout with enough clearance for the incline bench, we recommend an area of approx. 2.5 x 2.5 m / 8.2 x 8.2 ft or about 6 m² / 7,2 yr².
Skirting / base board
A direct wall connection is necessary for anchoring in the wall. It may be necessary to cap an existing 120 cm skirting board beforehand.
What safety aspects does Gymfurn Epeius fulfil?
We have had the Fitness Cabinet tested and certified according to DIN EN ISO 20957 T1 & T2 for stationary training equipment for home use (class H).

What exercise equipment fits into the Fitness Cabinet or can be used on it?
The Fitness Cabinet is compatible with a range of versatile small training equipment.
Compatible means two things. On the one hand, it means that you can easily store the equipment in the Fitness Cabinet. On the other hand, you can use the equipment separately from the cabinet or in combination with the anchor points on the pull-up bars and rungs, or in combination with other equipment such as the incline bench.
The doors are used to store
- 2 dumbbells (max. basic size 38 x 19 cm),
- 2 kettlebells,
- 1 yoga/fascia roll (max. Ø 17 cm),
