  • Reno-Sparks, NV (1888PressRelease) March 08, 2016 - Elevated Fitness, America's only carbon-neutral gym, was recognized as a Climate Leader by the California Environmental Protection Agency.

    Every year, the California EPA recognizes standout green businesses from all industries and size across the entire state. Those business which practice outstanding environmental initiatives are awarded Climate Leaders. "From Eureka to San Diego, small businesses throughout the State are showing that environmental protection, innovation, and profit go hand-in-hand", states California Air Resources Board Chair, Mary Nichols.

    Elevated Fitness, in South Lake Tahoe, California, received this prestigious award in Sacramento on March 2, 2016 because "Elevated Fitness isn't just green, they are a mini-power plant. They produce more electricity than they use. By equipping all of their spin bikes with generators, they capture human energy and convert it to usable electricity", Judy Nottoli, California Air Resources Board.

    In the official write-up, Elevated Fitness was recognized for purchasing an electric vehicle, which is charged via converted electricity from human energy produced in the gym (generators on spin bikes). From replacing florescent bulbs with direct-connect LED T8 bulbs to reduced power use, to ENERGY STAR electronics, operating a paper-free business, low-flow toilets, light timers, all natural cleaners, and all recycled materials (flooring, equipment, etc.), this gym was a real stand-out from the standard cardio and TV-walled mecca's we usually see in the fitness world.
