(Oakland, CA, June 9, 2016) – The Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) today proudly announced and welcomed the addition of SportsArt to its membership and sponsorship ranks.

With over 38 years of innovative design and manufacturing excellence, SportsArt consistently seeks to advance industry standards, positioning itself as one of the most creative manufacturers of premium quality fitness, medical, performance and residential equipment.

Among SportsArt’s leading product lines is ECO-POWR™, a green technology with integrated micro-inverters built into select bikes and ellipticals. When ECO-POWR™ products are plugged into any standard power outlet, the human energy generated is converted into utility-grade electricity.

“SportsArt is the leader in the green technology category and the studio market is keenly interested in and excited about it,” said Josh Leve, AFS founder and CEO.  “I’ve personally seen ECO-POWR™ in action and I came away hugely impressed.  We’re very pleased to welcome SportsArt into to our AFS community.”

As one of the largest single brand manufacturers in the world, SportsArt is sold in over 70 countries worldwide.  And no other manufacturer boasts a line up of green products that are instrumental to rebuilding and sustaining lives.

“We strongly believe that ECO-POWR™ will resonate in the studio market,” said Ivo Grossi, vice president of sales at SportsArt.  “We know studio owners will like reducing their electricity bill, but perhaps even more important, they will be active participants in the global environmental movement.”

The SportsArt/AFS relationship goes beyond traditional associate membership and includes several important outreach and content development sponsorships. 

“We intend to be an active participant in the AFS community,” said Jason Yormark, director of marketing at SportsArt.  “We know AFS understands the industry trends, and we believe our company is right there.”

SportsArt also features a full line of traditional cardio and strength equipment, along with accessories for all product lines. More information can be found at
