An extra motivation to go to the gym

We know. Sometimes motivation to keep exercising at the gym might be hard to get.

A tough day, that report you must deliver on time or the lack of that simple text message from the one you are into. Cry no more. It’s time to get moving.

Seriously, workout is one of the best possible things you can do to clean up your mind, wipe out the bad vibes and get healthier. And guess what, to save the planet as well. How’s that for a whopper?

 

Your energy converted into electricity

A new range of exercise machines literally transforms your gym efforts into electric energy that can be pumped back into the power grid.

The latest SportsArt’s ECO-Powr line of exercise equipment for gyms and sports centres, presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, uses sophisticated technology that captures human exercise and turns it into usable electricity.

Imagine climbing the virtual Everest on a special bike that simultaneously charges your smartphone with your own burnt calories. Gyms can save on power costs while investing in new consumer electronics that are one step further in sustainable design and energy efficiency.

The prices of these machines are similar to the ones of regular exercise machines, so we are probably going to see more eco-friendly gyms in the years to follow – as long as you can handle the pain, obviously.

Let’s hope that one day, if anyone asks where you’re going, your rightfully answer is “Can’t talk now, I’m off to save the planet!”.
