The recently opened Green Microgym in Portland, Oregon, is not your typical fitness prison: it’s a gym that’s as dedicated to the health of the environment as it is to that of its members. The gym is powered by a combination of alternative sources, including solar and ‘pedal energy’ generated from the stationary-bicycling of its patrons.
