Solar-Powered Green Gym By French Architect Jean Marc Rivet

Everyone seems to be on a quest to get healthy these days. But, what if you could get healthy and be green at the same time? It's a win win situation if you ask me.

This solar-powered gym, brainchild of french architect Jean Marc Rivet, was built in Saint Gillies, France. The building lays upon an angular base, perfect for natural sunlight to enter through its main window. When night falls, the gym is powered by its solar panels.

The gym also features a rooftop garden that not only adds to its beauty, but provides some insulation as well.

Who's in the mood for a workout?
