April 29, 2009 Everyone knows that for the sake of their health and wellbeing, they should try and work out most days. However, trying to fit in a gym session in an already busy schedule is sometimes impossible. A home gym makes daily exercise a little easier but who wants to fill up their house with bulky, unsightly exercise equipment? The Fitness Cube may be the answer.

The Fitness Cube is an ultra-compact exercise unit for people who prefer their home to be clutter-free. Inside the cube is everything you need for a complete workout session. You simply pull the handle and within seconds you have your very own weights machine. The resistance intensity can be adjusted to your fitness level, using the eight-position adjustable switch.

There are 30 different exercises you can perform with this piece of equipment and all the necessary accessories are packed into the cube. An exercise poster details how you can use the various accessories to tone all the muscles in your body. You may also opt to purchase a DVD which shows you how to perform the various exercises.

The Fitness Cube is manufactured by Domyos, a French fitness company. It is very compact – about 20inches by 20 inches by, of course, 20 inches (50x50x50cm). It's a cube! It weighs just 33 pounds( 15kg), so you can easily move it from room to room. If you’re really keen, you can even take it with you on vacation. Its stylish compact design means it will blend in with most decors or can just as easily be packed away.

The Fitness Cube retails for about USD$145 (GBP99), which seems reasonable compared to a yearly gym membership.
