Self-Powered Gym Equipment
This study examined the economic and environmental benefits of using self-powered gym equipment, and measured the response of gym guests when presented with a choice of grid-powered vs. self-powered equipment.
Guests respond positively to self-powered gym equipment as a sustainability initiative
For the same type of cardio machine, guests will choose the self-powered option: when one bike was labeled as self-powered, its usage increased significantly (+123%) and usage on non-labeled bike simultaneously decreased (-44%)
Each self-powered bike at the test gym saves enough energy per year to power a desktop computer for up to 300 hours
