As Dino visits the gym and notices the members tirelessly working out on the treadmill, cross trainer, and rowing machines, he often wonders if all this energy accumulated could be recycled one way or another. It may not be to power up the building, but at least the water-fountain or the workout machine itself.
Surprisingly, Dino came across an article about the Human-Powered River Gymnasium, which takes this idea of recycling wasted energy to a whole new level.
Quoted from the website – “The River Gym concept is a human-powered floating gym that will provide the user with the one experience that no other gym can provide: floating your workout around
“The River Gyms are, in essence, floating gyms designed to provide health amenities while floating along the Hudson and East rivers. Each gym is programmed with a specific path set on a 15 minute loop moving from one point to the next. This means that each one of these devices can function both as a gym with a view and as a transportation system.”
Check out the image below. It’s quite an interesting concept, but will it actually kick-off?
