Chinese fitness brand Misspao created small gym pods for a single person to work out in

Chinese fitness company Misspao is trying out a new concept for going to the gym: individual workout pods. A customer gains access to the pod using a companion smartphone app and pays for how much time they spend within it.

Time slots for the solo gym space must be booked beforehand. Once a user has an appointment, they display a QR code on their phone for the pod to scan. Inside, customers have access to a treadmill, TV screen, air purifier and portable fitness accessories, which they can use at their leisure at the station. The pods are cleaned regularly by a maintenance team.

The pods have only been released in China so far, but Misspao hopes to expand to other countries as its idea continues to find success with customers.
