Green Gym



By: Patrick Prince

There is other ways to have a good workout that doesn’t depend on electricity, automotive transportation, and useless gear. Purchase electricity-free equipment, like Mats, stepping blocks, dumbbells and self-powered machines (rowers). The biggest thing is watching your labels of your shakers for your protein shakes. Make sure they are recyclable and BPA free.

Average use of a machine
 1500 watts: Power consumed by an average treadmill.
 .75 kilowatt-hours: Energy used during 30 minutes on that treadmill.
    2 pounds: Amount of CO2 a treadmill gives off during a 30-minute workout.
   350 watts: Continuous power generated by the Team Dynamo and Spin Bikes


Possible solutions are
-Walk to the supermarket/ or store
-Ride your bike to work
-Hiking or running
-Gardening
