Energy Efficient

We are committed to delivering the best product experience to you but not at the expense of the planet.  Creating an economically clean manufacturing system that is enduring and sustainable is critical to delivering on that commitment.

Our factory in Tainan, Taiwan is as architecturally and environmentally groundbreaking as the cardio equipment it produces.  Opened in 2013, our 100% energy efficient factory remains one—of—a—kind in the industry and operates on the same principals upon which it was conceived: health, sustainability and simplicity.

The Beauty of Green

A green factory is defined as a building that consumes minimal resources of the planet and produces the minimal waste.  The goal is to minimize impact on the environment and the health of the people working there.

Our building’s entire life cycle—location, design, construction, use, maintenance, and demolition—is based on the efficient, mindful use of natural resources and on providing a beautiful, pleasant working environment.  We are guided by these Nine Green Building Indicators established by Taiwan’s National Council for Sustainable Development under the Ministry of the Interior (MOI).

We do this not for praise or recognition—though we’re humbly appreciative of these.  We do this because the earth is our home, because its people are our friends and family, because its life forms are the air we breathe.  So, we start with ourselves, and strive to create the ripple.

Low Carbon Footprint

Our 14,000 m2 (150,000 square foot) facility produces one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry.

Solar Powerful

Nearly 2,000 pieces of solar panels power the entire facility generating enough power for neighbouring businesses.

Water Saving

Rain from the roof goes to the factory’s retention pond to feed the sprinkler system and water the grounds. Even water from the powder—coating department is purified and recycled then also added to the pond.

Climate Control by Design

White exterior paint and the solar panels reflect the sun’s heat while high ceilings and minimal west—facing windows keep the inside temp naturally cool.

Future Growth

More than 50,000 trees and shrubs were planted on the grounds of the factory. In the days and years ahead these trees will grow, sustain the environment, and contribute to a greener Earth.



Measures a building’s viability as a habitat and place of interaction for the plants and animals native to the site.

Man—made wetland

Protected stream eco—system

Use of natural soil and ecologically—engineered nature fence


Assesses total carbon dioxide (TCO2) levels after completion of planting trees and/or other greenery. TCO2 must be greater than the original, pre—planted, levels.

Planted 200 trees and 5,000 shrubs creating a park—like green space


Compares water retention capacity of the site pre— and post—development. At a minimum, the developed site must retain no less than the site prior to development.

Retention pond conserves water during high rainfall

Provides flood prevention

Use of natural soil and ecologically—engineered nature fence


Analyses glare control of glass surfaces, shading requirements, insulation, air conditioning, lighting.

Utilises solar power

Use of natural sunlight—skylights and windows reduce need for lightbulbs

High ceilings, open windows allow natural airflow and reduce need for air conditioning


Assessed under four categories: rational structure, lightweight structure, building durability, and use of recycled building materials.

Simple, yet structurally sound, building

Minimal concrete usage

Construction practices minimised CO2 emissions


Includes minimising of construction waste, demolition waste, and air pollution during construction.

Use of recyclable building materials such as steel

Retention of indigenous soil onsite during construction

Preservation of indigenous ponds onsite during construction


Evaluates inside environment for light, sound, ventilation, and eco—friendly interior finishing.

Clean, well—ventilated air

Low noise levels

Eco—friendly paint


Measures use of water–saving irrigation systems or rainwater/greywater recycling systems including water-saving toilets, taps, and other mitigating measures.

Reclaimed rainwater

Sustainable landscaping irrigation system

Toxin free


Measures sewage improvements to drainage, maintenance, and management of daily wastewater. Measures garbage—handling improvements for aesthetic and sanitary qualities.

Waste recycling

Waste water recycling

Kitchen waste

Artificial filter(sewage purification)

Our Green Products

Intenza applies the same values of sustainability, simplicity, and health to our products—changing the universe of exercise equipment forever.  Our designs embody the clean, quiet, beautiful environment in which they’re built and assembled.


Most of our products feature a Standby Mode which greatly minimizes the energy consumed by the machines when not in use (Treadmills: 0.4W/Bikes/Elliptical Trainers: 0.25W).


When pedaling at more than 40RPM or striding at more than 40SPM, Intenza bikes and ellipticals go into ECO Mode meaning the equipment, the multimedia player, and the TV are powered solely by the user’s efforts.  Available on the e Series.

“We’ve created the most revolutionary and environmentally conscientious line of exercise equipment in the world not because it’s easy but because it’s right.  Our customers, our employees, and our earth are the reasons we’re here.  Our care for each is at the root of every product we make, every window we open, and every tree we plant.”
