GymyGym office chair turned fitness center
Ever have one of those days where you’re sitting at your desk, feeling totally unproductive, probably reading Mobile Magazine? Well hand’s off the mouse and onto your chair. The GymyGym ergonomic exercise chair gives you all the tools for a full body workout without having to leave your desk.
Claiming to be the world’s first ergonomic exercise chair, the GymyGym comes equipped with a full-body strengthening and conditioning fitness system. Using the variety of handles and straps, the GymyGym facilitates 16 core exercises that work all the major muscle groups.
Creator (and first name lover) Adam Ben-David believes us desk-chained machine cogs are overworked, overweight and overstressed and developed the GymyGym to “support the American worker in transforming their lives by increasing their physical and mental health, self-image, fitness and creativity.”
By eliminating the hassle of going to the gym by bringing the gym to your workplace Ben-David hopes to have an impact on the overall health of the deskbound workforce and give people easy access to getting their 30 minutes of recommended daily physical activity.
At a price tag of US $599, I actually think this is pretty reasonable for an ergonomic chair/fitness system. Additional pluses: it’s made from 95% recycled material, comes in three different colors and the product site has instructional videos (the perfect excuse to get youtube un-blocked at work).
