SportsArt recently announced its partnership with Sacramento Eco Fitness, a new gym opening this month dedicated to sustainability and eco-friendly fitness initiatives. The studio will feature SportsArt’s ECO-POWR line of spinning bikes for a first of its kind indoor cycle studio which harnesses the power cyclists produce during their workouts and puts it back into the facility’s power grid.
SportsArt’s ECO-POWR cardio equipment turns human energy into utility grade electricity through a micro-inverter similar to the technology found in solar panels and wind turbines. When plugged into a power outlet, the equipment will convert human energy into electricity and a single workout can produce more than 160 watts per hour per unit of electricity. Additionally, club owners can leverage the power gym members are producing through their daily workouts and start seeing significant energy cost savings.
Sacramento Eco Fitness is a boutique gym studio that aims to be fully energy independent by using equipment like SportsArt’s ECO-POWR line to convert energy generated by equipment into utility-grade electricity for the gym. The facility is the first fitness center in California to support both working out and sustainability initiatives. The gym is also planning workout incentives, like reduced memberships for gym members, for people utilizing SportsArt’s ECO-POWR line.
Currently, SportsArt’s ECO-POWR line is used in 400 gyms and hotels across the world and plans to double that number within the next 12 months.
