Find a way to adapt common gym tools for a reduced gravity environment and design a workout routine that can minimize bone and muscular loss while being fun and easy to use during a long term mission. In doing so consider constraints regarding weight (equipment should weigh less than 500kg) and dimensions. Consider incorporating virtual reality to simulate a jog through an astronaut’s favorite Earth destinations or incorporate gaming to motivate users.


In this challenge, this app links astronauts exercising in space with citizens exercising on the ground by placing both of them in a virtual reality environment through a VR headset coupled with any smartphone along with a wearable to measure their activity.
