Binge watching your favorite shows is making you soft and doughy, but that’s okay – the Cycflix is here to help. Basically, the Cycflix is an exercise-powered home entertainment system that makes you workout for the right to watch Netflix.

You just fill in your workout routine, select the movie or show you want to watch, and the device will load the title in Netflix. Once you start training and reach your desired tempo, the show will start streaming. If you fall behind, Cycflix will cut off the entertainment. If you want to watch, you have to work for it.

It was developed by engineering student Ronan Byrne, who used an Arduino Nano to connect between his exercise bike and his PC. If you want to build one for yourself, he’s posted the details over on Instructables.

Netflix and sweat anyone?
