Turning human effort into electricity

Air turbine fuelled workouts

WITH a footprint measuring less than one square metre, the SynergyAIR Power Tower offers training diversity for operators who want to maximise every centimetre of floor space. Using an air turbine to power a patented

integration of Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) which negates the need for electric cables and ensures fluid movement, Power Tower can generate a range of resistance with almost limitless capacity. This makes the equipment ideally suited to anyone from beginner to elite athlete. With a simple adjustment of the resistance

control, the CVT can be configured to deliver either a strength or a cardiovascular workout. This diverse functionality, added to the power range, makes it possible to execute hundreds of exercises and deliver a range of training goals from strength to aerobic fitness, from increased metabolism and coordination training to improved muscular endurance. In addition to fulfilling a function as a

standalone piece on the gym floor, Power Tower is suitable for a small group training environment. The CVT means power adjustments can take place very quickly, allowing individuals a smooth, seamless transition between exercises, giving users the benefit of the peripheral heart training effect and maximising training efficiencies. A fixed console provides basic information

relating to interval time, power and calories. Workout data is kept to a minimum, encouraging the user to focus on execution. 30

THE new Eco-powr range launches in the UK this autumn. The products harness up to 74 per cent of the kinetic energy produced during a workout, converting it into electricity that can be pumped back into the local grid, offsetting a significant portion of a facility’s energy consumption and costs. A single workout on an Eco- powr machine can produce up to 200 watts per hour of electricity, fed back into the local grid via a simple power outlet.

A full ‘green circuit’ of equipment could generate 2000 watts per hour; the equivalent of running a washing machine for six hours. Over time, this could add up to substantial reductions in the energy footprint of a facility, along with significant cost savings:

A circuit of 10 machines could generate an annual saving of £1,300 per year in a single facility.

The new range consists of six pieces of equipment: treadmill, elliptical, upright cycle, recumbent cycle, indoor cycle and cross trainer.

All pieces in the range can be connected to create a ‘green circuit’ within any existing facility, with wifi connectivity that allows the user to track their own workout and the energy they’ve generated through the free SA WELL+ app.
