This gym is powered by muscles

I did a quick Google search on "this gym is powered by bicycle" and found out that there are already some gyms looking into that since at least a decade ago.

I then search for "this gym is powered by rowing machine" and it looks like there is nothing written on it.

When I think about the machines at the gym, the stationary bicycle and the rowing machine do not require electricity to run; however you generate heat when you make that stationary object move which in turn can turn into energy.

I have never been to a spin4kids fundraising event but my gym is packed with people who love going to spinning class on a regular basis. It would be interesting to see if all of the stationary bikes were connected if it would generate enough power to keep the TV on for the people outside of the spinning room for that one hour.

Let's say a important sporting game was on and your only option to watch it was at the gym from power generated by the stationary bicycle. If you are pedaling, you won't be watching tv.

Anyways, I digress, is there any other gym equipment that has the potential to generate power aside from the stationary bicycle and rowing machine.

The Woodway Curve is self powered by the user. Not sure how they could collect energy from it though.

Is that toaster energy efficient?

That's a nice alternative to electric treadmill.

Looks like a damn turkey.
Not smart if the dude wanted to make something else look bigger... it’ll be like putting an 80 inch tv right beside the screen of a movie theatre.
