A Dutchman who loves to workout after work came up with a great idea to exercise outdoors because he didn’t want to sit on a bike anymore since he had already been sitting all day in the office.

Bicycle maker Bruin Bergmeester created a unique kind of treadmill, named the Lopifit.  It is a combination of an electric bike, a scooter, and a treadmill. Unlike a regular treadmill that is set up indoors, this environmentally-friendly invention allows you to enjoy the weather while walking on this moving treadmill.

According to product’s website, “The Lopifit is a totally new way of moving. With the electric assist it takes no more effort to walk then “a walk in the park”.  The electric assist in combination with the gear is boosting your walking pace up to the speed of a regular bike.”

“When you are walking on the Lopifit, you push the treadmill backwards with your feet. A sensor is registrating the movement off the treadmill and gives a signal to an electronic device which will activate the motor. The motor now supports you to continue the walking movement. Using the brake will shut off the motor immediately. If you are going downhill a freewheel function is activated.”
