TGO showcase their green outdoor gym concept at Formula E Championships London

TGO, the UK pioneer of outdoor gyms were proud to be a part of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, and feature in the Allianz E-Village - a race-day festival of exploration technology and innovation.

The E-Village has been a key part of Formula E events - bringing up to 40,000 fans a day at each race closer to their on-track heroes and future technologies set for the road and beyond...

During 30th-31st July 2022 TGO gyms and TGO activate were showcasing their green gym concept – a gym combining cardio equipment that generates power with calisthenics to provide a community friendly facility for parks worldwide to activate a healthy people, healthy planet vision. TGO activate had its local heroes on the stand too showcasing the best of calisthenics, teaching people how to use the static equipment, whilst the TGO team, were challenging families to an energy challenge on the cardio pieces:  The power smart range generates up to 100 watts per piece. TGO gyms has a patented power smart system that it is looking to roll out where the energy is stored and then fed back into the grid. For every kilowatt generated, TGO can sell that energy to the grid and plant a tree. At the show 500 trees were generated through the tree challenge set and TGO doubled that amount to sponsor a 1000 formula E trees which will be planted in Kenya with the Eden Reforestation Project. TGO has planted over 50,000 trees so far.

TGO’s healthy people, healthy planet vision:
• Humanity is at critical moment – we are living unsustainably; we are overconsuming leading to lifestyle diseases and climate change. We must evolve to protect ourselves and the planet. We need to move more, consume less, eat more sustainably, and protect nature.
• Our solution is creating TGO gyms in the centre of each community to drive up health through the power of movement and teach people to look after their health and the planet too. Our gyms plant trees, generate power, educate about health and fitness, and bring communities together.
• By 2030 we need to have halved our emissions. Now it is critical to support and train people to be healthy, strong, and sustainable citizens.

The Power Smart range is TGO’s newest range – an upgrade to the world’s first green energy generating outdoor gyms that is great for physical health, mental wellbeing, community spirit and our beautiful planet too. The equipment captures human energy and converts it to useable electricity; from charging your phone to powering nearby lighting. The upgrade now also includes our new SMART technology with in-built measurement tools. The gym owner get to track activity and energy generation at the TGO gym - great for evidencing your success and making the case to funders for more gyms.
