GYM: Concept Car for Physical Fitness

Sporting and sporty, combining fitness and transportation

If being an electric car isn’t enough to make you look at this concept vehicle with an appreciative eye, would it help to say that it incorporates personal workout into it’s operation?  That’s right, it is flashy, sporty, and helps keep you healthy.  The car could be charged up using a connection to a conventional electric outlet, but it can also be charged by another, rarely tapped form of power: the human body engaged in physical exercise.  It has a stepping machine, a bench press, a rowing machine, and you can even do some pull-ups, keeping you physically fit at the same time as you put that aerobic energy to a practical use.

Designed by Da Feng, a design student at Coventry University, this aesthetic auto is made from a lightweight magnesium alloy and a “small amount” of bodywork done with carbon-fiber.  The basic chassis design is based on a WWII fighter plane, but the built in gym, (assumably where the car gets its name), was the Da Feng’s idea.  Imagine, instead of getting in your car to drive to the gym, you can get in your GYM so you’ll be able to drive the car.

Coventry University, located in the UK, has been the origin of a number of gadgets and inventions designed to make our lives better without undo environmental impact.  We highly reccomend checking out some of the articles in Innovate: Applied research at Coventry University.
