We’ve seen a few gyms that are trying to turn the burn into juice to power the place. Now Energia had become the first private gym in Massachusetts to use energy from fitness as energy. The gym’s owners estimate that each person can create 70-130 watts of energy per hour, so a class in motion could generation about 50 florescent lights.
The studio estimates that spinning classes can create up to a third of the power for the building, and this is just one way that Energia is going green. The gym has bamboo flooring and uses 100 percent recycled material to make for a sustainable studio. And of course every class means more power to the gym!
