From TV screens and air conditioning to fluorescent lighting, traditional gyms require a considerable amount of energy for regular operations, but a new wave of eco-friendly gyms are challenging this idea, including London's Terra Hale.
Terra Hale sets itself apart as a distinctly unique gym that is entirely human-powered—it uses the energy generated by its members to power its own facilities and surplus energy is fed back into the grid.
Beyond appealing to the values of the eco- and health-conscious consumer with its sustainable energy initiative, Terra Hale also offers pay-as-you-go classes for those who prefer not to commit to a long-term contract. Even the look of the gym sets it apart as an entirely new concept, as the walls are lined with air-filtering plants and the floors are covered with recycled rubber flooring.
