nude incentive for exercise

treadmill with a sultry video

Guys (not excluding myself) will often do almost anything to pursue seeing pretty women. Perhaps this primal drive can be harnessed for physical fitness.

A treadmill with a video screen in front displays video of a beautiful woman. When running at peak levels the video becomes progressively more provocative. If the runner drops below peak levels, the video rapidly drops back to tame.

Don't worry, it isn't really porn. But don't watch the first 8 seconds at work. [Shadow Phoenix, Feb 05 2008]

       This is definitely something I need. I can't stand the boredom of working out.

       ...not trip.

       If you're going too slow, the gruesome twosome wombles in front of you.

       Oh great! Lumbered with watching East German shot-putters.

       You'll just have to hop a bit faster, oneoff. Just build up that leg muscle a bit more, mate, or it'll be the lovelies from Leipzig for you.
DrBob, Jul 07 2003
  

       You wouldn't want to go too fast, either. You'd want to keep it within the aerobic threshold.
mrthingy, Jul 07 2003
  

       Now you phrase it like that [Dr Bob] I can see this as an incentive. Reposition the screen so that they are chasing you.

       [bliss] If I added a longer shin to my prosthesis, I could be [talldave], but I'd have to hop.

       Hard to run with a hard-on.

       "Did you just get off a sultry video treadmill, or are you panting to see me?"

       I think this idea could appeal to serial rapists. They like to chase women down and take thier clothes off. Maybe this would quench thier thirst for the hunt. It may instead make normal people think "All I need to do to get that girl naked is run after her!". + for anything involving naked women though. Not enough of that in this world.

       Suggest you rename it; The Heart-attack Machine. (+)

       Somehow orgasm while sprinting seems a dangerous combo. Not to mention, people will be jumping off the treadmill to have a smoke.

       For those of you who are a little more excitable, a PG-13 setting might be useful.
talldave, Jul 07 2003
  

       I was going to post an idea for naked workout instructors as an incentive to going to the gym, and rediscovered this idea in my search. It's better because you're not in public.

       Well, it's either going to make me fitter, or lower my standards. I can't see either one as a bad thing (+)

       There would need to be a lot of different scenes for the computer to choose from depending on your level of activity or it would need to be animated.   

       Either way, I passed the level of saturation for prn a long time ago, but if there was a live performance the other side of a window, I'd be motivated. The performance can be continuous and work like a peep show, except that instead of tokens, you have to keep working out to keep the screen open. Either that or your treadmill powers the light in the room the stripper is in.

       I passed the level of saturation for live performances a long time ago, but if there were a live cookery show on the other side of the window, I'd be motivated. The performance can be continuous and work like a peep-show, except that instead of tokens, you have to keep working out to keep the ingredients coming. Either that or your treadmill powers the cooker.

       This could be a solution to America's fatass problem.

       I am holding out for the hill sheep edition.
oniony, Feb 05 2008
  

       As a practical joke, someone could edit one of the videos to be like the "xxx" video on Youtube.   

       For those of you who don't understand why that would be funny to do, see [link.]
