Go hard or go green: eco-friendly gyms are popping up all over the place, full of inventive ways to superset our workouts with environmental bene ts.
Green Fitness Studio (www.green tnessstudio.com) in New York, for example, has bamboo oors, recycled yoga mats and water conserving showers. 1Rebel in London (1rebel.co.uk) have recently given their studios a zero single-use plastic policy, coining the hashtag #rebelagainstplastic.
If you’re looking to take things a step further, the rst ‘human-powered’ gym might be for you. At Terra Hale’s London studios (pictured above) ‘eco spinning’ classes (www.terrahale.com) convert the energy that participants generate during class into electricity, with each one making between 1,500 and 3,300 watts – enough to power your computer for an entire working day!
To take steps to make your own workout greener – walk to the gym rather than drive and opt for machines powered by movement, not electricity.
