Abstract—One way to increase the interest of the community in exercising is providing sport equipment which is integrated with the tourist site. One exercise tool that can be applied is aerobic walker type outdoor fitness equipment. Aerobic walker is a tool with the principle of static walking. This article discusses the planning of aerobic walker type outdoor fitness equipment products using the design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) method and calcifications using the house of quality (HOQ) methods in which the design is based on drawings, materials, analysis, and equipment production plans. The method used in this research is action research, numerical engineering and application of simulation using the Autodesk Fusion 360 application. The design of the tool can be used by two people with an average weight of 80 kg and operating with a maximum speed of 30 rpm. The design results are divided into 3 parts: the main frame, foot handle, and footrests made of carbon steel with 6010 bearing types. The safety value of the tool for safety factor and the tool bearing age factor are 15 and 12128.52 hours, respectively. Based on consumer needs with the house of quality method, the design of this tool has a value of 3.9 and is better than other fitness equipment (52 hours).
