It's all well and good being told that exercising leads to a healthy body and mind, but running on a conveyor belt isn't exactly inspiring.

Gyms are often full of chunky men, making love to themselves in the mirror as they lift more weights than you will ever manage.

To get you out of the gym, we've short-listed 15 weird work-outs that may actually inspire you to get moving (...although there's strong chance they won't).

Reward your exercise efforts with free brownies, popcorn and flapjacks - and that's just the start...
