We’ve seen a few examples where health clubs and gyms are getting some juice from people power. So as users hit the machines they can help power the lights and actually supply power back to the grid. But now Great Outdoor Gym Company in the U.K. has taken this concept to outdoor gyms. There are more than 250 open air exercise areas across the country, but a pilot project in Hull could be the first to create a high-tech outdoor gym.
This features weather-proof gyms feature cross trainers and hand bikes, as well as fitness and recumbent bicycles, while the TGO Green Heart center allow users to check weight and determine BMI. All the equipment in these gyms is designed to comply with the European playground standard EN1176 to make the areas safe for the users. Video after the jump
