The Gyre9 'Green Revolution' Turns Boring Workouts to Power Workouts

One can no longer argue that their efforts are completely wasted while working out thanks to the Gyre9 'Green Revolution,' which turns workout energy into electricity.

This is a regular gym bicycle that is attached to a scoreboard that lights up as the users pedal. What energy is normally wasted during exercising on the bike is used to power the grid's bright display. The stand is tall with a creeping vine design, with the stem and leaves lighting up as the person works out. It is a great way to view one's progress while feeling accomplished during a physical workout. For skeptics, knowing that 20 of these gym cycles have been bought for NBA player Steve Nash's personal gym might be a reason to warm up to the concept. This is an excellent way to keep Mother Nature and her inhabitants healthy.
