The pandemic has held most of us in our homes, and not that we needed more excuses to tidy up the gym, but now we have a legitimate one – there is literally a virus on the loose. ! But ignoring our health and fitness is something we simply can’t afford to do anymore. If there’s one thing COVID-19 has instilled in us, it’s that health really is wealth. And, while I like to procrastinate and put off any form of exercise for as long as I can, I can’t deny the fact that health should be seen as a top priority for all of us. Or I did, until Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is that day of the year, where we put all dietary regulations aside and go all out! And we’re here to help limit the damage. This collection of exercise equipment will not only motivate you to burn off all that weight after Thanksgiving, but will also ensure that you stick to your daily exercise routine in the future. From a space-saving exercise bike that converts into a piece of furniture to an interactive yoga mat that turns stretching into a game – these innovative exercise equipment will keep you from skipping leg day!
1. Peleton atmosphere
Peloton Vibe is for all senses and muscles from start to finish, it really is a whole atmosphere. The bench has a unique multi-position arm that can be moved to work with a variety of exercises. The lower part stores a set of dumbbells that allow it to expand to a wider range of workouts guided by the Peloton App service. Once you are done with your workout, the bench seat and arm surface seamlessly transform into a massage experience. It uses built-in massage balls which can rotate and heat according to your preference. Home gym equipment AND home spa? I would train more often just so I could make the most of the heated massage feature.
2. “The-O” exercise bike
Meet the ‘The-O’ exercise bike designed to be minimalist, without all the fancy features you will never use in your daily fitness routine. The fitness accessory is designed with the quirks of owning one in mind. First of all, the space required and the non-flexibility of use. Then there is the complexity of use which detracts from the goal of a simple fitness regimen. The-O doesn’t have any, and it doubles as a functional piece of furniture when your fitness is held on hold for days or even weeks. Use it as a seat for your casual work regime or transform it into a bar chair for the holidays – the options are endless. You can even make it a base for keeping houseplants.

8. The pilot bike
The final design of the Pilot bike centers around a lightweight 7005 Series aluminum frame and striking hubless wheel features. To finalize the design of the hubless wheel, which is functional in every detail, Franz called on his fellow mechanical engineers. Ultimately, the offset axle design had the extra gear to spin the wheels at an appropriate speed with the pedaling motion. This is assisted by the on-board motor for that extra boost on inclines when the throttle is pressed. The Pilot bike finally came to life after countless modifications and design changes. The next step was to finalize the colors, materials and finishes.
9. The bicycle case
The bike case does not actually come with its own stationary bike, but rather is designed to be compatible with your existing stationary bike. Designed to fit Pelotons as well as bikes from other brands (there is a listing on their website), the case comes with a sliding steel carrier drawer that allows you to mount the bike on it. The drawer is designed to support up to 180 kilograms, so you can workout right on the case and slide the bike in when you’re done. It’s oddly handy, and your guests won’t even know you have a makeshift gym in your living room.
