HUMAN POWER GENERATION IN FITNESS FACILITIES

ABSTRACT
As energy usage across the world continues to rise, there
is a strong need to develop new methods for energy
conservation and power generation, particularly approaches
that have less environmental impacts. Although human power
is not ideal in terms of life cycle costs [1], there are promising
application areas for human power in emerging regions where
electric power is either not available or not affordable [2].
There is also untapped potential for harnessing human power
at most fitness facilities. This paper focuses on the feasibility
of capturing this energy at fitness facilities, particularly the
Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) at University of California,
