SportsArt Fitness' New Green System Turns Human Energy into Useable Power

Share Article

SportsArt Fitness' revolutionary Green System is a “pod” of fitness products attached to an inverter that harnesses human-generated power from exercisers and feeds it back into the power grid as useable energy. The Green System is the first "plug and play" solution of its kind for health club owners who want to offset power costs with human energy. The system will debut at the IHRSA show in San Francisco this week.

Green System Power Inverter

A typical health club that replaces all of their ellpiticals and cycles with Green Systems could see savings of over $3,000 per year on electricity bills

SportsArt Fitness, an innovative manufacturer of high-end cardio and strength products, will launch their revolutionary Green System at the IHRSA show, March 17-18, 2011. The Green System is a “pod” of fitness products attached to an inverter that harnesses human-generated power from exercisers and feeds it back into the power grid as useable energy. The system will be shown for the first time to exclusive guests within a private showroom in SportsArt Fitness’ booth #2240.

“The power inverter attached to the Green System is about the size of a stereo receiver and has a regular 240VAC plug. To operate the system, a person would simply plug it in to a 240VAC outlet and start exercising,” Bob Baumgartner, Product Manager for SportsArt Fitness said. “Each pod can generate up to 2000 watts per hour during full use. A typical health club that replaces all of their ellipticals and cycles with Green Systems could see savings of over $3,000 per year on electricity bills,” Baumgartner said.

The Green System joins an established line of eco-friendly fitness products offered by SportsArt Fitness. The launch of their ECO-POWR™ treadmill five years ago offered club owners a treadmill that uses 32% less energy than a traditional club treadmill. Additionally, SportsArt offers a line of completely self-generating ellipticals and cycles that require no outside power source to operate.

“The combination of our ECO-POWR™ treadmill motors and our Green System ellipitcals and cycles will save facilities thousands in energy costs,” Ken Carpenter, Director of Sales for SportsArt Fitness said. “We welcome the entire industry to become more eco-conscience as we will continue to invest heavily into this crucial green initiative.”
