Vedas' holistic approach

At Vedas, the mission is to help members attain an optimal level of well-being through knowledge, motivation, and inspiration. This philosophy not only extends toward improving the health of its members but towards maintaining a healthy environment in which members live and workout.

The facility is a state-of-the-art holistic center that opened in January 2018 to serve as both a club and wellness center for the attached Marriott hotel. The facility has been fully renovated using recycled and renewable materials to reduce Vedas’ ecological footprint and promote sustainability within its community. One of the key sustainable features in the facility includes cardio equipment that turns human energy into electricity, lessening Vedas’ overall energy consumption.

THE EQUIPMENT FROM SPORTSART REALLY ALIGNED WITH OUR MISSION PHILOSOPHICALLY. OBVIOUSLY, OUR FIRST PRIORITY WAS TO FIND HIGH-QUALITY MACHINES THAT PROVIDE AN EFFECTIVE WORKOUT TO OUR CLIENTS, BUT THE ECO-FRIENDLY CONCEPT OF HARNESSING THAT ENERGY AND FEEDING IT BACK INTO THE BUILDING WAS AN ADDED BONUS THAT WE ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT. IT JUST FITS US PERFECTLY AS THOSE ARE TWO CONCEPTS THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO US.

Integrating sustainable fitness

The initial phase of implementing green fitness into Vedas’ location consisted of installing ECO-POWR™ Upright Cycles into their main cardio area. Soon after they increased their energy production with the first install of Verde treadmills in the United States.

The Verde treadmills are located in their own cardio section near the functional training area, allowing them to be used as a traditional treadmill and, utilizing push mode, for HIIT workouts and circuit training.

THE EQUIPMENT IS AVAILABLE 24 HOURS A DAY FOR OUR MEMBERS, BUT WE HAVE ALSO INCORPORATED THEM INTO OUR BOOT CAMPS AND PERSONAL TRAINING. ESPECIALLY THE TREADMILLS HAVE BEEN GREAT DURING 1-ON-1 SESSIONS AS WE DON’T HAVE THE SPACE TO PUSH A SLED AROUND. THE 'PUSH' MODE ON THEN TREADMILLS WITH RESISTANCE ENABLES THE USER TO GET A WORKOUT YOU OTHERWISE COULDN’T GET IN OUR GYM.

The guest/member reactions

SportsArt ECO-POWR™ equipment allows every member at Vedas to feel a sense of ownership in a larger sustainable movement and adds an extra level of meaningfulness to burning calories. By providing ‘watts produced’ as a data metric, the members and guests aren’t limited to measuring their workouts by time, distance, and calories but also as an overall contribution to a more sustainable planet enabling them to tangibly see the amount of energy they have created.

OUR MEMBERS AND GUESTS HAVE BEEN REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE EQUIPMENT FROM DAY ONE. REACTIONS RANGE FROM 'THAT’S PRETTY COOL' TO 'HOLY COW! WHAT A GREAT IDEA!'. THERE IS NO DOWNSIDE, IT’S A CONCEPT THAT EVERYONE CAN GET BEHIND.
