You may not know it, but you are helping to make a healthier future for all of us when you choose to work out at VS&F! Together we are charging into the future with cutting edge technology, a green focus and energy conscience mission. There is nothing more important to us than our members’ health and fitness experience and that includes the impact on our shared community.
> generating over 100 megawatts of solar power
> saving over 160,000 single water bottle uses
> reusing/donating over 1,200 tennis balls
> replacing over 700 LED bulbs
> creating over 2,000 custom automations each month for efficiency
Over the past two years you are contributing to the equivalent of planting 3,900 trees and saving over 150,000 tons of CO2 emissions. We are working daily to try and make sure that every other stride you take on the treadmill is powered by the sun.
The 2,000 automations each month include Ecobee thermostats and 20 sensors controlling the climate and air flow at every moment of the day. Additional automations include a Samsung SmartThings hub that regulates the steam room and manages hundreds of lights and several smart bulbs around the club. They are all timed to classes, programs and personal preferences!
If you are wondering yes, the staff is very much over Dan’s trial and error, running around talking about the temperature and climate in each room!
Vermont Sport & Fitness is committed to making sure that our members feel great about where they work out and are proud to call VS&F ‘my gym’. We will keep doing our part to make this the best place to reach your fitness goals in New England.
When you choose to workout here you are part of the future powered by the sun and getting greener, smarter, and healthier each day. Thanks for journeying into the future with us.
A special thanks to my brother Michael Doenges who is the brains behind every single automation and smart device at the club.
