Push a giant ball on an over-sized treadmill. With balls of various weight, and treadmills at various speeds and degrees of inclination, you'll get in shape the high-tech old-fashioned way. Pushing a light ball on a non-inclined treadmill, you can get a nice cardio workout involving both your upper and lower body. Pushing a heavier ball on an inclined treadmill, our trainers will instruct you on various pushing techniques to work and build just about every muscle in your body.

       They clean out the changing rooms there by diverting the course of a river to run through them. It is rumoured to be a very stable method.

       So simple, yet one of the best Half-Baked ideas Ever. But what's to stop the giant weighted ball from running over you when you get tired? Or is that part of the game? [+]

       Funnily enough, there is a contest called World's Strongest Man that i've seen on tv a few times and there are indeed large stone balls called Atlas Stones for one of the events.
