For a modern person, keeping fit is a must. Many people go to sports clubs on simulators. Not everyone has the opportunity and time to visit clubs, many train at home. It is interesting that in Russia the first simulators appeared in the middle of the 19th century thanks to Emperor Alexander II. He ordered them abroad for himself and his family members. It seems that there is no limit to the imagination of simulator developers. Check out the most unusual exercise machines of our time.
Jacuzzi plus bike
It would seem, how you can train in the bath, except for the hydromassage, nothing comes to mind. But the developers have combined a jacuzzi with a bicycle, given that much more energy is spent on movement in the water. Research has shown that half an hour of cycling in the water is comparable to a two-hour workout on a regular stationary bike.
Owners of large offices should be interested in simulators that can be used during working hours. The Americans figured out how to equip the workplace with a treadmill. You can, without being distracted from your main work, gain a daily rate of 10 thousand steps, moving at a comfortable speed.
And to train on an office simulator chair, you don’t even need to get up. This chair is a multifunctional trainer designed for the development of many muscle groups. The chair can replace 16 exercise machines.
This simulator will be of great interest to girls who want to improve their figure. A capsule is installed on the treadmill, from which air is evacuated. Before class, you must wear a special sealed skirt. Running on such a track requires much more effort, but the effect of such activities is greater. Due to the vacuum pressure on the hips, abdomen and buttocks, you can get the figure of your dreams much faster.
This Surfset Fitness development resembles a surfboard and is able to simulate the sensation of being in the ocean on the very crest of a wave. It does not need electricity, it works due to the action of powerful springs. Removable handles help maintain balance, there is a brake. The trainer is capable of providing strenuous training for almost all muscles. For those who find this not enough, you can use additional expander to increase the load.
Simulators designed to imitate riding work by a similar principle. Such devices have several speeds, it is necessary to maintain balance while the simulator walks under you. These exercises are good for the abdominal muscles, thighs, and legs. You can adjust the speed to your liking.
And finally, one more interesting fact. The authorities in a Brazilian prison decided to use exercise bikes to generate electricity by connecting dynamos to them. Electricity was used not only for the needs of the establishment, but also for street lighting. There were a lot of people who wanted to train, as for every 16 hours of training on a stationary bike, the term of imprisonment decreased by one day.
