Sometimes ya gotta get a little tricky to get kids off the couch and outside to exercise! The Attivo series of playground equipment focuses on exercising the entire body with a variety of fun games that isolate different areas to improve agility and coordination. It includes a climbing station for upper body, skateboard ramp station for balance and building core muscles, an abacus style station for lower body, and finally a small goal with net in the middle for groups to play games on both sides.

At first glance, Vela might look like nothing more than a peculiar modern sculpture, but it’s actually the first of a new breed of exercise equipment designed for the aesthetically attuned user. The design thumbs its nose at other exercise bikes that, more often than not, end up an eye-sore in many people’s living rooms.

In the modern world, the average working person sits almost 10 hours per day! It seems a bit unnatural doesn’t it? It’s no wonder that the latest trend in furniture is seating that aims to work your body while you’re at work. The Jopple is one example that forces the user to maintain balance while seated so they maintain a tight core. The design’s cushions also fold out to form a workout pad where the user can do crunches or stretch. If only it would yell at you when you’re being lazy!
