Pullman Power Fitness and Citroën create self-driving fitness pod concept

French car manufacturer Citroën and hotel brand Pullman Hotels & Resorts have partnered to create an autonomous "urban mobile platform" concept, designed to allow people to explore cities while working out.

The Pullman Power Fitness Pod would act as a miniature gym, mounted on The Citroën Skate, a self-driving electric vehicle.

Designed for a single exerciser at a time, the pod features a rower on one side and a static bike on the other, enabling the user to work out while travelling through a city.

A digital coach – appearing on a holographic screen – encourages and guides the user through their workout, while also providing route information and entertainment during a "next-level cardio session".

The pod has a glass bubble incorporating dichroic patterns in the form of blinds, protecting the occupant’s privacy while maintaining a view of the outside. The design echoes Pullman’s graphic and colour conventions, with iridescent shades of blue, purple, pink and green.

There is also a customisable audio and LED lighting system, providing each exerciser with a unique experience.

Exercising within the pod would also charge The Citroën Skate’s batteries.

The Pullman Power Fitness Pod is one of three pod concepts created for the Citroën Skate as part of The Urban Collëctif partnership, which also involves outdoor advertising group JCDecaux.

The partnership aims to come up with innovative ways to "optimise mobility" so that people can reclaim urban spaces and significantly improve their quality of life.

Pullman Hotels & Resorts is part of French hotel giant Accor.

Sébastien Bazin, chair and CEO, Accor, said: "We're delighted to be teaming up with Citroën and JCDecaux for this innovative project.

"With nearly 5,200 hotels worldwide, our group is active in the local ecosystem and committed to offering even more exclusive experiences, both to travellers and local communities, while contributing to the development of sustainable cities.

"Extending the hotel experience outside the walls of our establishments is in line with our bold and modern vision of hospitality.”
