Green warriors have their green fitness club. Where? In Spain, in Valdespino de Somoza, in the countryside of Leon. It’s there where some Spanish villagers have built a low-tech green gym area called Lumen. Don’t expect to meet steamy trainers, listen to trendy music, or carry heart beat tracker. There, you get in shape by playing with exercise machines made from a worn car battery, tree branches, boots, rocks or concrete.
There, you essentially learn everything by yourself, by reading the appropriate brochure that bundles the machine. Or if you’re lucky, you could meet the founder of Lumen, Manuel de Arriba Ares, who will show you his “modest knowledge as a professor of physical education”. Of course, exercising in such a place is free. (via microsiervos)
