What if going to the gym meant powering a whole building? The Eco Gym at @i_square in Rochester, NY, is converting the energy from indoor bikes and ellipticals into electricity, which then is used to power the building. Just one workout can be converted into more than 160 kilowatts of energy. By comparison, using a 42” plasma screen TV for a month only requires about 45 kilowatts. If you’re not in the Rochester area, there’s still options for you. Other gyms such as California based @sacramentoecofitness have been implementing similar machines, so check out if there’s one near you. Time to get cycling 🚴 - Years Of Living Dangerously
