Exercise Train

  1. Lady using the rail intended for holding onto on public transport train to perform gymnastics.
  2. When people are transporting between places, it takes time, but is not necessarily productive time. This lady is making use of the train structure and turning it into an urban gym. One potential solution here would be to replace the majority of the seats in the train with areas for people to do mini exercises. It would be an interesting experiment to see if such a layout of the train would be used. Sometimes people don’t want to exercise in front of the general public, and usually people on the train are wearing street clothes as opposed to workout clothes. Maybe if exercise equipment was available on a train people would start wearing the appropriate clothes and the cultural norms would break down. All of these would have to be considered if introducing exercise equipment to the design of train cars.
