Walking can do wonders for your health and your weight, and that’s what the Trekdesk aims to get you to do throughout the day. It turns your treadmill into a fully functional workstation where you can walk while you’re on the computer, phone, or just using your desk.
02. GYMYGYM EXERCISE CHAIR
The GymyGym is a specially designed office chair that allows you to exercise anytime you want while you’re sitting down. It allows you to perform 16 core exercises for strengthening the various muscle groups in your body. You can even exercise your legs. Work and stretch your body with ease even if you can’t leave the office.
03. WII CYBERBIKE
There are a lot of games available for the Wii, many of which encourage you to move your hands and legs around, thus getting you some exercise. The Wii Cyberbike is another addition to the workout benefits that you can get from the Wii. Now you can play games by riding on an exercise bike.
04. INTERACTIVE INTERIOR STAIRS DESIGN
This unique concept encourages you to get more exercise done through walking up and down the stairs. It features a changing interactive wallpaper that grows new leaves each time you use the stairs. As you grow new leaves on your wall, and old leaves fade away, the effects can be stimulating.

05. MT. EVERCLIMB ROPE CLIMBING MACHINE
This endless rope climbing machine features an innovative design when it comes to home exercise on which you can generally keep on climbing forever. As you climb up, the rope lowers itself bringing you back down the same amount you climbed up. You can thus keep climbing continuously even with a very short height.

06. ENDLESS POOL
Similar in concept to the Everclimb endless rope climbing machine, this is a technology designed for swimmers. Unless you’re super rich and have large amounts of land and property, it’s hard to build a pool large enough to give you a good workout outside your own home. The Endless Pool allows you to get the benefits of a really long pool with only a fraction of the space needed. It features a built-in water current that keeps pushing you backwards and you have to swim forward against the current.

08. BIKE POWERED BUS
Riding buses and cars all the time means that we have less chances to exercise than ever before. In order to overcome this problem, bike-powered buses were invented. Basically, it’s a bus that runs using the leg-power of everyone on the bus.
09. VIRTUAL REALITY TREADMILL
One of the main disadvantages of exercising indoors is that you don’t get the view that comes with jogging outside. This virtual reality treadmill aims to help you overcome that by simulating the outdoor experience.
10. INPOOL EXERCISE BICYCLE
Should you bike or should you swim. There are so many decisions to make in life. The InPool Exercise Bike helps you to get the best of both world presenting you with a bicycle that runs in the water. This machine results in greater resistance than you would face while biking on land, giving you a better exercise experience.
