Gyms used as a means of generating power has been heard of before. But now we have another one located over in the U.K. The new gym is located in the city of Hull and can reportedly generate over 400,000 watt hours or 40 kilowatts.
The Great Outdoor Gym company is the brains behind the outdoor gym, something which can reportedly be used for free as long as they are local residents of the area. This is the first time that the company built a gym to convert human energy into electricity.
At the moment, the gym is supplying power to its own lights.
Georgie Delaney, Ceative Drector at The Great Outdoor Gym Company, says that the prototype gym costs $100,000 to install. Although it’s a bit expensive, Delaney adds that they are also working on a cheaper $32,000 model which can re-charge mobile phones and tablets.
