The Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) represents a number of organisations across sport, exercise and health and one of the challenges is bringing all of these different organisations together in the same forum. Seeing conferences in action such as Elevate are crucial to the sport sectors development and a great opportunity to share best practice and learn from each other.
Elevate brings together the physical activity community in one place, at one time to be able to tackle the inactivity challenge we face, and now has a sense of much more depth and maturity about what it’s asking its visitors, participants, delegates and speakers to do.

Eco-Powr is where the bikes, treadmills and ellipticals push back 74% of what you generate into the local grid, which means you cut down the need for electricity within the whole building.

Both days were very successful and The Power Tower challenge proved very popular, and a good way of getting the message through about how important sustainability is for this generation and future generations, alongside supporting a worthy charity such as Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough.
