The GYM Concept Car is a project by Da Feng, a design student graduating from Coventry University in 2009.

The GYM Concept Car, as the name suggests, incorporates a novel idea. A mobile gym.

The GYM Concept comprises of a single-seat cockpit surrounded by a lightweight injection molded magnesium alloy chassis and built in exercise machines. Covering the chassis is a minimal amount of carbon fibre bodywork, giving the car a purposeful appearance which was in part inspired by WW2 fighter aircraft.

Inside the GYM Concept Car is where things get interesting. Powering the car is an electric motor and battery pack. The batteries are charged either through a handy plug-in socket, or by harnessing the energy created by the driver when parked up and working out using the built in array of exercise equipment, which includes a stepping machine, rowing machine, bench press, pull up simulator and arm weights! This is not just some dated peddle kart.

The whole idea behind the concept is to offer something entirely unique. It would allow the user to escape the repetitive work outs and familiar surroundings of a gym, and find his or her own private location. In much the same way runners have their favorite route, the GYM Concept Car can go anywhere to inspire its user to exercise.

While the idea of a car incorporating a gym might seem completely crazy to many people, this is exactly what a concept car should do, challenge the conventional ideas of transportation and offer alternative solutions to various scenarios.

The GYM Concept car was designed for a competition held by a company called P4 Cad Cam.
