Switch your membership to a Human Powered Gym

Also known as a sustainable gym these unique spaces use generators connected to gym equipment to power themselves. Using generators connected to exercise bikes and treadmills, the gyms are able to power themselves by harnessing energy from their members’ workouts. AC4 fitness in Goleta, California, a 24-hour self-service health club, uses cardio equipment that generates power and feeds it back to the grid for reuse. Even their facility is an eco-haven as their members are encouraged to use only stainless steel water bottles and their lockers are produced from 100 percent post-consumer plastic.
