Energy-Generating Gym Memberships

People toil in gyms every single day, expending energy that is essentially converted into heat that is not put to any good use. In fact, most gyms are air-conditioned in order to wick away all this heat to maintain a nice confortable temperature! This idea is to create gym equipment that functions to also generate electricity that can feed a power grid. Treadmills, bicycles, rowing machines, etc. seem to be pretty efficient machines to convert for energy generation.

Add this: membership fees would go down as energy-generation increases. Every member might have an energy card that tracks the amount of electricity that's generated by each individual member. The more the member visits and works out at a gym, the lower the membership fees. This makes sense because the member is essentially lowering the overhead costs of the gym, and perhaps the most loyal and hard-working individuals would benefit from free gym memberships!

Great idea. I though of this as well and scoured the internet looking if anyone had tried it out. I was wondering if it would generate a substantial amount of energy worth collecting. Here are some people already working on it.

There's now a gym in the U.S. that is powered by sweat and tears. The system converts existing equipment into power generating machines. When you start moving, most of your energy generates DC power, which is then sent to an AC converter and then sent to the grid.

Michael, this is the first time I've of a sweat-powered gym here in the U.S. This must be introduced and part of the government's initiative to curb obesity in the country.
