When exercise time rolls around, there are two discreet handle bars at the top of the Arceas [1], and another two at the base. These provide great resistant training whether standing or seated. Also, a nifty cushioned mat that looks far more comfortable than any yoga mat we’ve ever used folds out so that it’s possible to do floor exercises as well.

Although working out with the Arceas isn’t quite like going on a hike [2], it definitely beats the sterile equipment of old. And we especially love that it requires so little space and actually looks like a cool wall-mount when the map is folded back up. The wall panel comes in two different colors and the mat is fully customizable as well. We’re feeling inspired. How about you?
