In honour of Earth Day this weekend, Saturday April 22nd, we've rounded up our top 5 simple eco-friendly tips to transform your fitness regime to conserve energy and help the planet. Talk about a winning workout!
1. Reusable Water Bottles
Rather than using plastic water bottles on a daily basis, switch up your hydration style to an environmentally-minded method! Plus, with a reusable bottle you can endlessly refill your cup during and after your workout session.
2. Warm Up on the Way
3. Back to Basics Exercise
Bike, walk, or run to the gym as part of your warm up. Bonus points for taking the stairs (Toronto Athletic Club’s penthouse location is only 36 floors up!)
Incorporate equipment that doesn’t require power and instead uses human-fueled energy! Pick up a skipping rope for your cardio, try out the free weights, or you can even utilize your own body weight which does double duty as both strength and mobility training.
4. Fair Trade Shower
Select natural cleaning products and soaps for your post-workout shower. Cambridge Group of Clubs provides Tashodi shampoos, conditioners, and soaps in our locker rooms. Tashodi is a leading Canadian fair trade organic bath and body care company whose products are made right in Toronto.
5. Towel Off with Less Towels
Be ecologically aware at the gym. In an effort to minimize environmental impact limit your use of towels to save on the energy used during laundering.
Cambridge Group of Clubs makes extensive efforts to reduce environmental impact and encourages Members to assist in this mission.
