innovation in the way we operate and constantly look to reduce our carbon footprint. The new SportsArt Green Sys- tem® has provided that technology to assist us in supporting the environment plus the community we serve.” The new power-generating gym

The new pieces of equipment include recumbent bikes, upright bikes and elliptical trainers – all capable of producing up to 2,000 watts an hour and more importantly, cost the same as other SportsArt machines. “With Spectrum Leisure’s evidence of


energy savings, we believe this will en- courage other gyms and sports facilities to consider our Green System for in- creased efficiencies and reduced costs.”
