To operate the system, a person would simply plug it in to a 240V AC outlet and start exercising.


“Each pod can generate up to 2,000 watts an hour during full use. Calculations based on replacing all ellipticals and cycles with SportsArt Green Systems suggest that the typical health club could make savings of between £1,500 and £2,000 a year on electricity bills.” The Green System joins an established line of eco-friendly fi tness products offered by SportsArt Fitness.
