Abstract

Fitness is one of the necessities of our life. Fitness tells about our health and gives us a good appearance. Fitness doesn't depend on age, the people who don't have time to visit the fitness center do other things to maintain their fitness either by diet or cardio exercise though it keeps them maintain their weight. It doesn't develop the muscles and doesn't give a muscular appearance. For obtaining a muscular appearance people must either go to the gym or want to set up a home gym, setting up a home gym costs a lot and occupies more space. The developed product mostly focuses on home gym setup at low cost and less space. The proposed work is on the design and analysis of multifunctional fitness equipment. The product consists of Dumbbell with free weights, a Centre rod, a bend Bar, a weight hanger, and locking pins. By assembling the Dumbbell with a Centre rod, it can be used as a Barbell rod, by assembling the Dumbbell with a bent rod it can be used as an EZ bar, Dumbbell without free weights and with a weight hanger can be used as a forearm roller and Dumbbell can be also used as Abs roller. So, with a single product with a different combination, the developed product can use 5 different types of equipment. Static structural analysis is also done for the product to ensure its safety.
