“The company’s focus on positively impacting the environment allows club owners to meet the demands of today’s socially and environmentally responsible customers.

Ruben Mejia, executive vice president SportsArt added “we are honoured to have been selected for this award. Since the inception of SportsArt in 1977, it has been our founders’ personal mission to bring sustainability to the fitness industry by not only helping people create healthy happier bodies but also contribute their efforts to a healthier planet.

“We are overjoyed to have his innovations and green approach to traditional fitness recognised and are excited to partner with IHRSA as we focus on growing his vision in the decade to come.”
