The World's Most Powerful Cycling Studio

Centrifuge began as a simple ‘wouldn’t it be cool if’ idea that evolved into the most powerful cycling studio in the world.

Emma Baiz, the founder of Centrifuge, has been involved in the fitness industry for many years, as a power lifter, adding cycling to her routine after an injury kept her away from the weight racks. Her passion for the environment brought the idea of an energy producing cycling studio to mind and when she discovered it was possible “Everything changed and the full court press was on.” With 25 energy producing cycles, Centrifuge is now able to produce up to 6,000 watt-hours of human electricity per class, to bring the community a fitness studio that not only provides fitness but also motivates members to make sustainable changes.

IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR MAXIMUM PERSONAL FITNESS AND ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS.

Community Connection

The St. Petersburg, Florida area is a classic beach town with many tourists and a tight knit community. Viewing the effects of environmental issues on the ocean in front of them daily, St. Pete is heavily focused on green living and reducing the overall ecological impact created by its society. For community members, being able to see the direct results of their workout in an easily digestible way provides motivation and a greater sense of accomplishment.

At Centrifuge, the goal is to use the connection people make with the environment through their workouts to bring awareness and support to other areas in the community, inspiring changes that benefit the local ecosystems and the planet at large.

BEYOND THE OBVIOUS BENEFIT OF COLLECTIVELY REDUCING OUR GYM'S CARBON FOOTPRINT,
THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED BY SPORTSART BRINGS THE RESULTS OF OUR
EFFORTS TO A VERY TANGIBLE LEVEL FOR MEMBERS.

More For Members

Turning human energy into electricity for many seems like a concept out of a SciFi movie, but, at Centrifuge, it is the concept that is setting them apart from all the other competition in the area. Adding value to workouts that aligns with the aspirations consumers have to be more sustainable is not only bringing people to the door for memberships, it is also creating a dialog with the facility. The open communication is creating a way for Centrifuge to quickly and easily gather feedback to continually improve the workout and membership experience.

EVERY JAW DROPS WHEN PEOPLE FIND OUT THAT THE TECHNOLOGY EXISTS TO DO WHAT WE'RE DOING
AND THAT SOMEONE TOOK THE RISK TO BUILD IT FROM THE GROUND UP AND SEE IT THROUGH.
