The Green Revolution Begins: Innovative technology developed by The Green Revolution turns gym workouts into clean electricity that connects directly to the grid. Seen here is the Health Club version for indoor cycling equipment. It’s estimated that a standard health club could produce enough electricity to light 72 homes for one month.

Have you ever thought about all the energy you create while working out besides getting fit and burning calories? Well, Jay Whelan of Ridgefield, Connecticut was thinking just that when he underwent lengthy rehabilitation on an indoor cycling machine. Being an environmentalist, Jay conceived an idea to collect all his workout energy and turn it into clean and renewable energy. From this, came groundbreaking technology called The Green Revolution, where energy generated from human exercise can help power a gym’s grid by converting it to clean electricity.

Sweat Energy: Indoor cycling enthusiasts create electricity that will feed back to the grid. Health clubs fitted with the Green Revolution's technology can produce up to 3.6 Megawatts per year

The first health club to test this is the Ridgefield Fitness Club where Jay works out. The entire group cycling studio, comprised of 17 indoor cycles, is connected to the club’s electrical grid through an inverter, so human electricity can be used throughout the club. Any excess electricity has the potential for others in the community to use.

Group cycling participants can control their individual energy output through a resistance control panel attached to the bicycle, and the health club can track the total energy that is produced through exercise on The Green Revolution web site.

This technology has the potential to change the health club industry by helping to make the environment cleaner and greener while promoting a healthy lifestyle. It can fit any of a gym’s aerobic equipment with resistance.  However, it’s not yet available for use at home. But it will be before you know it, so stay tuned!

    I can’t wait for these types of gadgets to reach the home. It’s only a matter of time before everything we do generates power and feeds the grid… oh wait… that’s the Matrix…
