Plug In to Pump Up: A Gym Goes the Distance to Conserve Energy

At a little gym in Portland, OR, powering through a tough workout on the elliptical machine can actually work a lot more than your biceps and thighs. Inspired by a similar fitness center in Hong Kong, The Green Microgym generates electricity using a combination of solar power and the dogged pedaling of exercisers' feet.

Founded by fitness trainer Adam Boesel, The Green Microgym opened its doors last September, and has since generated thousands of watts of electricity by harnessing the power of its patrons.
