2-in-1 spin cycle and rowing machine make it straightforward to change between the 2 types of coaching

Aptly titled Spin&Row, this award-winning fitness equipment concept allows you to train your cardio and legs while cycling and your arms and core while rowing. Designed to give people the best of both worlds, the Spin&Row was developed during the pandemic when exercising at home was practically the only viable option for people. In addition, its X-shaped folding design takes up less space when closed, making it perfect for homes and apartments.

Designer: Zhang Chaoyi

“SPIN&ROW combines two popular types of home fitness equipment: a rowing machine and a spinning bike,” says Zhang Chaoyi, designer of the Spin&Row and a student at Hunan University. “It allows the user to switch between fitness modes by adjusting the angle of the X-structure, which can also be folded when not in use. As a result, it fulfills multiple fitness functions in a small space.”

The Spin&Row’s clever design gives it the best of all worlds. For starters, it’s equipped with a scissor mechanism that allows it to be opened or closed wide into a low-seated rowing machine or into an X-shaped stationary bike, occupying virtually the same area as a floor mat. It is designed to be operated by a single person and doesn’t really require an instructor or supervisor. The Spin&Row’s frame guides you through setup and allows you to lock it into one of three positions, and an adjustable bike seat allows you to customize the experience to suit your ergonomics.

The Spin&Row is the winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for 2021.
