1 River Gym New York get ready to work out on the waves! on Mon Sep 13, 2010 10:38 am
Human-Powered Gymnasium that dances on the waves and is powered by your sweat and your abs-crunching and muscle flexing energy- that is pretty much the concept that is going to drive this gym on waves. Designed with both amazing style and plenty of imagination, this futuristic gym might be our first step to one day shifting our lives from land to water and doing that completely. One can only imagine the kind of creative input that was needed to come up with this startling concept and ‘water world’ might not be that far away now.
Often the average urbanite exercising at the gym performs controlled repetitive single plane movements using industrial fitness equipment. All of this energy is summarily dissipated and ultimately exhausted for the sake of a single individual’s wellbeing. Other potentials exist to harness this vast human expenditure of caloric energy. In other words, all that energy that we constantly waste in the gym can now be used for something actually useful. Here is a gym that I would not mind giving a shot, provided I get some sort of free offer of course. I always believed that lifting weights for no apparent reason was useless and that is something that goes totally against my lazy laws. But now all that can change with this design.
By continuing to provide vital health amenities, the River Gym can leave the realm of the glass box and become a useful multi-planar kinetic space. Envision your gym becoming a machine of human propulsion that helps purify water, provide spectacular views, and transport less-motivated citizens. Moreover the latest gym does not just have a television set to stare at or the same old boring music in loop.
The floating gym actually gives you an ever changing view of the tranquil waves and nature’s beautiful panorama. That surely should push more people to hit the gym. Transforming loads of energy that is being wasted since decades in a gym for something meaningful is indeed a wonderful new idea presented by Mitchell Joachim & Douglas Joachim in a stylish and sensual way and the designers get a full thumbs up for that. Well done guys!
