Green Microgym collects Energy from Workouts!

Here’s a cool new gym in Portland, Oregon that collects energy from the work generated by people working out.  I think this is a great concept and should be applied to every gym.  In fact, they should make every gym machine so it can re-charge itself and other gadgets such as your cellphone.

The Green Microgym recently opened in Portland, Oregon – in addition to using solar panels and green building materials, they’re working with several companies that harvest power from gym equipment, including ReRev and Human Dynamo.

    This is FANTASTIC – we need so little room really to harvest solar energy or personal pedal power – just the confidence to back this new (well actually very old) energy source.. We can all help to make wise climate change resource decisions – read the emergency triage response to current climate change crises at
