Locals and visitors alike could soon be cruising along the Seine in Paris and taking in the Instgrammable riverside sights in a boat powered by their own workouts. The Navigating Gym – a project led by international design and innovation office Carlo Ratti Associati in conjunction with leading fitness equipment manufacturer Technogym, the non-profit architecture group Terreform ONE, and the urban regeneration institute URBEM – reinforces the French capital’s commitment to sustainability and well-being.


We here at Scoop Empire can’t help but wish we had one of these gyms in the Middle East, so we’ve re-imagined five locations we want this piece of technology at.


Dead Sea – Jordan

Imagine your gym workout didn’t just fuel your day, but also helped fuel a boat down the Dead Sea in Jordan? YAAS!



Dubai Canal – UAE

If this view didn’t motivate you to work out, we don’t know what will.



Rawsha Rock – Lebanon

This location will take selfies at the gym to a whole new level. Right, gym-freaks?



Nile River – Egypt


Via Fatakat


We basically want this gym anywhere on the Nile. From Luxor to Aswan, Cairo to Mansoura, hell, even Dumyat should have fun. The whole country will be ready for formet el Sahel (getting buff for the North Coast) season.



Marsa Alam – Egypt

We’re very sorry that Egypt took two slots, but Marsa Alam was named by TripAdvisor as one of the best beaches in the whole wide world, OKAY?!?!
