We typically honor our award recipients during IHRSA’s International Annual Convention & Trade Show. While this year’s event was sadly canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, we still want to recognize SportsArt for their many achievements.

SportsArt, the leading provider of green fitness equipment and an IHRSA member since 1999, was selected as the 2020 recipient of the Associate Member of the Year Award due to their passion for the health club industry and unwavering support of IHRSA through program and event participation, advertising, and sponsorship.

"In addition to their strong commitment to the industry and to IHRSA, SportsArt is committed to creating eco-friendly products while using eco-friendly business practices,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA president and CEO. “The company’s focus on positively impacting the environment allows club owners to meet the demands of today’s socially and environmentally responsible customers.”

“We are honored to have been selected for this award. Since the inception of SportsArt in 1977, it has been our founder’s 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,” said Ruben Mejia, executive vice president. “We are overjoyed to have his innovations and green approach to traditional fitness recognized and are excited to partner with IHRSA as we focus on growing his vision in the decade to come.”
