Facility Feature: Intenza 550UBe Upright Bike
Have you ever thought about where that piece of exercise equipment you are using was made? Or, how it was made? The Intenza factory in Tainan, Taiwan, is the only 100% energy efficient factory in the industry. They have the lowest carbon footprint in the industry, nearly 2,000 solar panels that also generate enough power for neighboring businesses, a water collection system, and many other eco-friendly innovations. They have even been sharing their facility design with their competitors so that they can help sustain the Earth for future generations.
Currently, there are 2 Intenza 550UBe upright bikes located on Cardio Row. These bikes are designed for users to be seated, standing or in a racing position, to work multiple muscle groups. The upright height and saddle were intended to mimic a road bike for a true riding experience. There are also 40 levels of resistance to really amp up your ride – the most in the industry. These bikes also have the latest features in technology to allow you to browse the internet, listen to your own music, or even watch your favorite show on Netflix.
