Be a Lean, Mean, Green Machine


You could go to the gym and run on a treadmill, watching TV and breathing conditioned air, or if you are in the UK, you can go to the Green Gym. Here, you get fit and burn calories while planting trees, laying hedges, building walls. Some Green Gym activites burn a third more calories than doing a step aerobics class, and you do good things for the environment at the same time. 'its a holistic way of getting people involved in the environment and community work, as well as the exercise" says one organizer. There are 65 Green Gyms in the UK now. ::Green Gyms via ::Time Out
