My SportsArt Experience at the
2016 IHRSA Convention
Written by Shellane Demarest
On March 22 and 23, 2016 I represented SportsArt as their Social Media Influencer at the IHRSA convention in Orlando, Florida. It was an honor to represent such a forward thinking fitness equipment company. Their equipment is not only constructed with some of the most sophisticated design around but their eco-consciousness philosophy makes them the best line of equipment that should be used in all fitness facilities.
SportsArt has a line of fitness equipment called ECO-POWER. To quote directly from their website, “ECO-POWR™ is our green technology product line with integrated micro-inverters built into select bikes and ellipticals. When ECO-POWR™ products are plugged into any standard power outlet, the human energy generated is converted into utility-grade electricity.” (SportsArt, n.d.)

At the convention, I had an opportunity to do what I do best: Be the social media influencer that I was created to be! I had a chance to meet people like Gabriella Reece and Erin Stern. I was able to walk around and check out all of the cool activities happening at the convention. We had an event called “Power the Tower” where there were three G55U bikes hooked up to a replica of the Empire State Building. Whoever lit the building first won a 25 dollar Amazon card.That was really fun! Most of all I was able to see the other competing fitness equipment lines there. Although they were similar, none had the eco-friendly philosophy that made me connect with SportsArt.
Thank you, Alanna, Jason, Rick, Tom, Kim, Jill and everyone else who made me feel like a part of the team. It was an honor to connect with them. Hopefully, when they return for the next convention, they’ll think of me and have me come out again.
