It is no secret that recreation facilities are energy intensive. The majority of this energy use comes from three places: lighting, HVAC systems, and cardio equipment, predominantly treadmills.
Reducing the carbon impact of these operations was previously a daunting task but today there are a multitude of solutions that can help operators lower energy consumption: LED light bulbs and motion sensors for lights, energy-efficient options and timing systems for HVAC, and now there is even green fitness equipment. Going green has never been simpler with SportsArt’s new Status cardio line which has three ways to go green, making sustainability an option for every fitness center. You can reduce your impact with SENZA™, Refuse to use energy with ECO-Natural™, and Recycle human energy into electricity with ECO-POWR™.
The Status Series SENZA™ Treadmill allows you to reduce the ecological impact of your run with patented eco-friendly technology. The combination of the ECO-DRIVETM energy-efficient motor and ECO-GLIDETM auto-lubrication system reduce the energy consumption by 32% when compared to other industry treadmills. While the SENZA™ touchscreen technology engages your students with interactive entertainment and workout programming.
The ECO-Natural™ VERDE Treadmill allows you to zero out your treadmills energy usage by unplugging the entire experience. Combining a non-motorized treadmill with a flat slat-belt that looks and behaves like a traditional motorized treadmill will at once feel both familiar and unique; providing exercisers with an efficient means of improving cardiovascular fitness while reducing their carbon footprint.
The most impactful way to go green with your cardio equipment is to turn the calories exerted during a walk, jog, run or sprint into usable electricity with the VERDE ECO-POWRTM Treadmill. The non-motorized technology combines with our ECO-POWR™ technology to harness human movement, through exercise, and then generate a net positive impact that can be used to not only offset the energy consumption of the equipment, but also offset the energy consumption of the facility’s lights, HVAC systems, and more. Combine the ECO-POWR energy production with the SA WELL+ tracking technology to engage students in the campus sustainability goals. Students can track their individual environmental impact and see how their personal efforts are contributing to the overall results of the recreation center.
The Impact of a Green Switch
An average brand new commercial treadmill consumes 568 watt-hours of electricity per hour workout. When you have 10+ units running throughout the day, this energy consumption adds up quickly. With the VERDE ECO-POWR™ treadmill, you are not only refusing to use the 568 watt-hours of a traditional treadmill, but you are also producing up to 200 watt-hours for a combined net savings up to 768 watt-hours.
By switching 10 traditional motorized treadmills to VERDE treadmills, operating 10 hours a day can have an energy offset of 28,016 KWH in just 1 year.
