SportsArt announces its partnership with Sacramento Eco Fitness, a new gym opening this month dedicated to sustainability and eco-friendly fitness initiatives.

SportsArt, a leader in sustainable gym equipment, announces today the results of its 2016 survey on gym sustainability, looking at the preference of consumers when it comes to the option of sustainable and eco-friendly gym equipment. The survey found that 62.4 percent of consumers prefer to work out at a gym if it uses environmentally-friendly equipment. “SportsArt’s ECO-POWR™ cardio line turns human energy into utility grade electricity through a micro-inverter similar to the technology found in solar panels and wind turbines,” said Ivo Grossi, Vice President of Sales at SportsArt. “When plugged into a power outlet, the equipment will convert human energy into electricity – this can produce more than 160 watts of electricity which allows gyms to create incentive programs for their members and save money.”
We are excited to announce that SportsArt is now a preferred partner of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. Carlson Rezidor is one of the most dynamic hotel companies worldwide. Its core brands include Radisson Blu, Park Inn by Radisson, PrizeOtel, as well as the Quorvus Collection and Radisson RED. It features an industry-leading Responsible Business program that strongly promotes corporate social responsibility and is based on the principles Think Planet, Think People, and Think Together. Steps towards this partnership began earlier this year when SportsArt delivered several of their ECO-POWR™ products to the brand new Radisson RED hotel in Brussels, Belgium. ECO-POWR™ cardio equipment allows users to generate and return utility-grade electricity to their facility’s power grid with every workout, which cuts costs for gyms and empowers users with the knowledge that they are helping the environment. This concept aligned with Raddison RED’s own eco-friendly initiatives.
SportsArt is pleased to announce a partnership with Xtreme CSC, a chain of fitness facilities based in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Xtreme CSC gyms combine strength and conditioning with functional training, as well as offer complete nutritional support for their members. Their newest gym located in Cashel, Ireland, opened fully-equipped with over 30 pieces of SportsArt equipment. “We are delighted and very proud to announce this long-term partnership with such a new and exciting brand,” says Roger Eldergill, UK Country Manager. “Their ethos and ambitious brand development match that of SportsArt – our exciting range of innovative new Cardio, fixed resistance, and free weights will allow Xtreme CSC to appeal to the widest continuum of a user. SportsArt has been chosen over the fierce competition to support the rollout of over 100 Xtreme CSC clubs. Early on in negotiations, it was made clear that one of our strengths is our focus on people. Despite being a global company, SportsArt brings a family feeling to the table – a trait instilled in all employees by Paul Kuo, Chairman and Founder of SportsArt – and that makes a real difference. “SportsArt’s mission of embracing your best self really resonated with our own,” says Connor Crotchett, Owner of Xtreme CSC, “They continue to impress us with the strength of their equipment and their quality of service. We are excited to continue working and developing this partnership with SportsArt.”
SportsArt ECO-POWR™ continues to encourage facilities to embrace the benefits of sustainability, recently extending to the hospitality space. As featured in the Carlson Rezidor Responsible Business brochure, guests of the Radisson Red in Brussels — their first flagship hotel brand specifically catering to Millennials — return the kinetic energy they create while exercising to the hotel’s electrical grid, which generates power for the hotel and can lower energy bills overall.
Members of Eco Gym (previously known as BeachFit) in the United Kingdom are thrilled about the gym’s new revolutionary approach to membership fees. Thanks to SportsArt ECO-POWR™ cardio equipment and its connection with the SA WELL+™ app, members can track how much utility-grade electricity they generate with each workout. In turn, gym operators are able to reward users with membership discounts based on their energy output.
