Faster, faster--the lights are dimming


Off the Grid Fitness in Scottsdale AZ opened this month. Instead of using electricity, the cardio machines generate it—and sometimes enough to return some to the grid.

This gym also uses TRX Suspension TrainerT, where all the energy comes from the exerciser.

This is described as eco-friendly fitness.

The joint also reuses and recycles everything—doors, frames, fans, mirrors, rubber flooring, and drop ceilings.

The lights are fluorescent, the water in the bathrooms low-flow.

Plastic bottles are frowned upon. And the laundry for towels is the greenest available.

Sounds pretty cutting edge. The least efficient thing in there would be me.
