Energy-Producing Playgrounds

By: Tariq Esmail (Rookie) Jul 8, 12

The Great Outdoor Gym Company has unveiled the TGO Green Energy Gym Technology to add to their existing collection of outdoor gyms across the United Kingdom. These provide office workers trapped indoors all day the rare opportunity to take their workout into the sun.

With the new Green Heart installment in Shaw Park, Hull, users can both enjoy and protect mother nature at the same time. This gym features equipment like that of any other gym, only this one actually harvests the energy spent exercising and converts it into electricity. Users can check height and weight, calculate their BMI and see how much energy they generated. Electricity from the gym can be routed to nearby buildings or the National Grid.

TGOGC has also pledged to plant a tree for every new order of the unit.
