Technogym has pioneered the green energy concept. Thanks to this concept, future gyms will be able to produce energy from the physical exercise of their customers. After years of engagement in developing products and solutions for energy saving – Technogym last generation treadmill reduces the consumption of electricity by up to 40% - Technogym now sets a new and more ambitious goal: producing green energy from clean sources. And what's cleaner than people's movement!

Thanks to Technogym's latest experimental concept the energy produced on exercise bikes can now be channelled into the electric network and used to power the gym's electrical appliances. An innovation that reduces the consumption of energy produced externally using traditional, pollutant methods. So the gym of the future becomes a mini, self-sufficient power station, thanks to the energy produced by the physical movements of its users.

Estimates forecast that every bike, when used at medium intensity, can produce about 120 Watt, the energy to power a high luminosity bulb. This means that an average gym, equipped with about 40 machines could become completely self-sufficient as far as lighting is concerned during peak times when all the machines are in use.

Worldwide there are about 110,000 gyms and they are equipped with approximately 1 million 500 thousand cardiovascular machines that could be used to produce Energy. This way the fitness sector would produce 150 Mwatt, the equivalent of a medium size electric plant. So if the Technogym Green Concept were applied to all this equipment, the Wellness sector could produce enough energy to power 50,000 homes, which is equivalent to a city of over 150,000 inhabitants.

These are extremely significant statistics from the point of view of the battle against atmospheric pollution. Clean Energy produced by fitness machines and channelled into a network not only saves on energy produced using conventional methods (fossil fuels), it also reduces C02 emissions. If the Technogym Green concept were applied to all the gym equipment in the world then the reduction in C02 would be equivalent to the emissions produced by a medium-powered car driving around the world 10,000 times.
