Lifting Body Weight Literally!

A gym in London called Gymbox health club is taking training equipment to the extreme. Gymbox not only let you use a multitude of resistance machines and free weights, they are now allowing people to lift HUMAN WEIGHTS.

The idea is that they have humans of varying weight that you can lift on various machines, these people that are your weight to lift also talk to you and give encouragement as you lift them.

By doing this it takes out the monotony of lifting metal weights and replaces it with something visual and interesting to push you that little bit further.

The human weights on offer vary in size dramatically from a svelt dwarf at 66 pounds (30 kilograms) to a whopping 342 pounds (155.45 kilograms).

Gymbox is really pushing the boundaries of training with its unique training equipment!
