Not every fitness facility can start off as a sustainable gym. Whether it comes down to pricing or timing or availability of materials/technology, sometimes going green just isn’t in the cards. But over time many opportunities to gradually transform into a sustainable gym can arise as repairs, renovations, and upgrades are needed. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t know where to start and the idea of making such a huge switch in addition to running their facility can be overwhelming. That is why SportsArt has created the Ultimate Sustainable Gym Checklist: to provide gym owners with a guide on how to begin the journey towards this transformation for both current and upcoming facilities.
SportsArt today announces its first installation in the United Arab Emirates as the exclusive provider of eco-friendly gym equipment for The Sustainable City. In a modern application of social, economic and environmental sustainability in the built environment, SportsArt’s contribution of cardio and strength equipment will further showcase The Sustainable City as a model for sustainable living, work, education, and recreation.
Have you noticed the sustainable shift happening in the fitness industry? Lately, there has been less and less talk about the classic little-bits-of-everything fitness clubs that offer a variety of equipment and more talk about the uprising of small ‘boutique’ fitness facilities. But all kinds of boutique facilities — whether they focus on cycling, HIIT, dance, or personal training — still face the same obstacles to success: How to retain members while bringing in new ones, all the while keeping costs low, competing with the local gym franchises, and turning a profit. Luckily, there’s one solution for everything: being different in a way that matters.
