Cybex SPARC challenge at AOC Sport Summer Conference

Life Fitness were proud sponsors & exhibitors at the annual Association of Colleges’ (AoC) Sport Summer Conference in Nottingham last month, as representatives from colleges across the country came together to discuss and share ideas regarding increasing students’ sport and physical activity provision.

As a not-for-profit membership organisation and the collective voice of all UK colleges, AoC’s Sport arm provides specialist advice, training and events with the aim of improving educational outcomes, employability and student health nationwide.

The conference offered Life Fitness and Cybex the opportunity to showcase the benefits that a well-equipped gym can bring to school or college and its pupils, and as part of the exhibition, attendees were also invited to take part in the SPARC challenge.

Showcasing SPARC’s unique design and calorie-burn ability, combined with improving strength through short high intensity workouts, the challenge was set to record the highest wattage output over a 20-second period.

The winner was Chris Wall, Deputy Head of Sport at Tyne Met College with an impressive 943 watts, who won a Cybex deluxe picnic bag which was delivered by Account Manager Richard Purves at the college this week.

Congratulations Chris!
