SportsArt creates line of sustainable fitness equipment

The Eco-Powr line feeds power, harnessed from exercise, back into the grid
SportsArt has developed a new range of environmentally-friendly fitness equipment that could dramatically reduce a facility's carbon footprint, as well as lower operational costs.

Named as Best Facility Innovation at the 2018 Elevate Product Innovation awards, Eco-Powr is a series of sustainable cardio fitness machines, including treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines, that features a built-in inverter that harnesses the wattage produced in exercise and converts it into AC Power before feeding it back into the grid.

The company claims that clubs, with an average of 30 pieces of cardio equipment operating for 8 hours a day, could save more than £15,000 in utility costs by switching over to Eco-Powr.

"Every fitness club has the potential to be a mini power plant capable of creating clean power - enough to reduce the world's carbon emissions and energy usage significantly," said SportsArt founder Paul Kuo.

"Imagine how many people who visit the gym each day working out on Eco-Powr equipment. Up to 74 per cent of each user's energy spent exercising would be converted into utility-grade electricity and fed back into the building's power grid."
