Hannah Fink: The Groove Exercise Bench
Home exercise equipment comes with a major problem: it doesn’t match common living space aesthetics. Most people don’t have spare rooms designated for exercise, so their home gyms stick out like a sore thumb. The Groove reexamines how fitness equipment is designed, and pushes it to a new aesthetic level.

We all know how important it is to find a fitness regimen that compliments our unique lifestyles. We should be realistic about what physical health means to each individual, and how we choose to manage our lives and our living spaces. Taking care of ourselves goes beyond caring for our bodies, but our surroundings as well. We shouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other. The Groove fits into your daily schedule and your living room.
The Groove enables a dynamic full-body workout.

Handheld resistance bands are integrated into the bench. They can be used for bicep curls, seated and standing rows, tricep extensions and more.

The Groove has three levels of resistance. You can engage one band for the least amount of tension, or two or three bands for a more difficult workout.
