From the company that brought you your favorite doorbell delivery and dash moments comes the new RingGYM, ding-dong! Because we believe stronger communities are the key to safer neighborhoods, RingGYM delivers the same intensity you watch everyday through your smart doorbell but now as a workout. Sign up today! Each RingGYM neighborhood NETWORK features exercises that were crafted from the best local on-camera deliveries, motion-triggered activities, and security history. Get strong, stay safe, and never leave home! From the comfort of inside, follow along with RingGYM BODYBUILDERS as they perform popular workouts outside like “6 Pack with 6 Pack Abs”, “Suspicious Standing”, or “Same-Day Delivery-Squats”. Building RingGYM BODIES to build safer RingGYM neighborhoods. (< sarcasm)

Under the guise of safety and security, smart doorbells now collect and share motion-triggered activities with the public and law enforcement. Extending the front porch into public space, smart doorbells have created an active broadcasting stage where human bodies bend, drop, place, hide, wait, run, and generate evidence on command by those who can afford to remain inside. Appropriating the ‘home workout’, RingGYM is a parody in app form, but it is also an app that you can actually workout to. Launch RingGYM, navigate the neighborhood NETWORK workouts, and follow along with a virtual RingGYM BODYBUILDER using your webcam to experience these warped visions of the “outside” — scenes of conjecture, capitalism, and crime. As a form of simulation and imitation, RingGYM creates virtual exercises from real videos collected by smart doorbells to elucidate the power structures, privacies, and labors from outside the home and bring them inwards.
