When I hear someone like David Wolfe talking about the latest super food he recommends, I often wonder how people on very low incomes are supposed to afford this kind of product. If you’ve ever looked at David’s web site you will know that what he has on offer is no doubt very high quality indeed, but very expensive, for someone who is feeding a family prohibitively so. The same goes for organic food too, sure you don’t have to eat as much because you are getting more nutrition, but it’s still too expensive for those who are not earning fairly high incomes.
So it’s nice to see a company creating a product that is free to all, and has the added bonus of actually creating renewable energy while it’s being used. Enter TGO- The Great Outdoor Gym Company, you could mistake it as a kid’s playground from a distance, but up close the gym they have created in Hull in the UK is a marvel and looks like just as much fun as you might have in a playground. You can weigh yourself, see how tall you are and help yourself to the hand bike or cross trainer at any time of the day or night, you also get to see how much power you are creating!
Yes that’s right, these exercise machines generate power as they are used, which goes into the local grid, apparently the average person will create between 50-100 watts of electricity, even more if they are very fit. So you can help save the planet at the same time that you’re improving your health! This would have to be one of the coolest ideas I’ve come across in ages, if we had one in my town it might even help me to get that cardio fitness that is the one element lacking in my personal program.
Have a look at this video, I suspect you will be as excited and inspired as I was:
