Carlo Ratti astonishes Paris with a floating gym

A new Technogym on the Seine that moves thanks to the force unleashed by those working out

A floating gym on the Seine powered by the energy produced by those working out, which moves along the canals of the most romantic city in the world. Science fiction? Not at all: it's called Paris Navigating Gym and it is the revolutionary project by the Carlo Ratti Associati firm, in collaboration with Technogym, Terreform ONE, and URBEM.
The boat - very reminiscent of the classical Parisian Bateaux Mouches - will be 20 meter long and will host up to 45 people. The interior will look like a typical gym, with ARTIS line fitness equipment provided by the wellness company Technogym. The unique feature of this equipment is that people working out can produce energy, which is then used to move the boat on the water as a normal engine would.

 

The more the people who are working out, the farther the boat will move, traveling on the water as a regular boat, but without polluting. To make the work out even more enjoyable, the floating structure will be made of transparent materials, which will enable passengers to admire the beauty of the surrounding landscape while, intermittently, data indicating how much energy they are producing at that moment by pedalling will appear on the walls.  

 

This new project is inspired by a similar idea conceived in 2008 by Terreform ONE for the city of New York, and it aims to offer a viable alternative to classical gyms, with a green connotation and an incomparable view.
