The standard issue gym equipment that once graced the Henley Fitness Center has been replaced with state of the art equipment from SportsArt. The SportsArt equipment allows the exerciser to not only work up a sweat, but produce electricity that is fed back into the electric grid of the building.
Through the innovative technology of EcoFit users can track their workouts and see how much power they have generated for the building, how many miles they have run, and calories they have burned over the course of their workouts. The watts generate by the users translate directly into points that can be redeemed on our partner websites. Many of the companies participating are eco-friendly retailers and offer everything from nutritional supplements to clothing to gift cards.
In addition to selecting equipment that has a positive impact on the carbon footprint of the building, the flooring is made from recycled rubber stripped from old tennis shoes. A new daylight harvesting and occupancy sensor system will be also be installed to help keep the space as energy efficient as possible.
