AI designed outdoor fitness equipment?




Artifical Intelligence (AI) is a big topic in today’s discussion due to the recent leaps the industry has taken. Major tech companies are investing heavily into AI technologies, and for example the latest version of ChatGPT has caused a lot of public interest about the future of internet and way of working.


As you might expect, since we are curious by nature, we wanted to check this out and ask ChatGPT’s AI to design outdoor fitness equipment. Mildly put the answer AI generated took us by surprise. Here is the prompt we used to ask ChatGPT to design outdoor fitness equipment:


"Design an outdoor fitness equipment with multi-dimensional functionality for bodyweight exercises"


ChatGPT's answer:


"Designing an outdoor fitness equipment with multi-dimensional functionality for bodyweight exercises involves taking into consideration various factors such as safety, accessibility, durability, user-friendliness, and variety of exercises. Here is a possible design for such an equipment:

  1. Pull-Up Bar: The equipment should have a sturdy pull-up bar with different grip positions such as narrow, wide, and neutral to cater to different muscle groups.

  2. Dip Station: The equipment should have a dip station for performing triceps dips, which should be adjustable to cater to different user heights.

  3. Push-Up Handles: The equipment should have push-up handles that can be adjusted to different heights to cater to different fitness levels.

  4. Plyometric Box: The equipment should have a plyometric box that can be used for different exercises such as box jumps and step-ups. The box should have multiple height options to cater to different fitness levels.

  5. Abdominal Bench: The equipment should have an abdominal bench for performing sit-ups and crunches.

  6. Leg Raise Station: The equipment should have a leg raise station for performing leg raises, which should be adjustable to cater to different user heights.

  7. Suspension Training: The equipment should have a suspension training system that can be used for various exercises such as rows and lunges.

  8. Resistance Bands: The equipment should have resistance bands that can be used for various exercises such as pull-aparts and bicep curls.

  9. Stretching Area: The equipment should have a designated area for stretching and cooling down after workouts.

  10. Safety Features: The equipment should have safety features such as non-slip surfaces, padded handles, and rounded edges to prevent injuries.

In summary, designing an outdoor fitness equipment with multi-dimensional functionality for bodyweight exercises involves incorporating different equipment and exercise options to cater to different fitness levels and interests. By considering safety, accessibility, durability, user-friendliness, and variety of exercises, you can create a safe, functional, and enjoyable outdoor fitness equipment that can benefit your community's health and well-being."


Our first reaction to AI's answer was positive, as the functionality is almost fully covered by Gritbird outdoor fitness equipment range. Gritbird combined pull-up bar, push-up handles and a dip station. Leg raises can also be done with Gritbird.


Gritree on the other hand offers a platform for suspension training, whereas Gritbox is a plyometric box combined with abdominal bench.


The resistance bands would be very functional, but they are difficult to combine into a public space fitness equipment in practice and are not very long-lasting outdoors. It is also great that AI takes safety features into account.


We will definitely keep following the development of AI with interest. Perhaps in the future AI will play a role in the user guidance part of public fitness equipment by creating smart instructions for users? Time will tell.


With warm regards,

Gritbird team
