What makes them a Green Business Leader?
Currently, Castle Hill is the only fitness club/gym that is recognized by the City of Austin as a Green Business Leader. The fitness center has many green initiatives to provide a healthy and resource efficient environment. For example, they provide uncannily comfortable & clean air, high efficient commercial A/C systems, bio-degradable chemicals for all aspects of cleaning and Flicker-free electronic lighting w/full spectrum lamps. What differentiates Castle Hill Fitness from other businesses is their water efficiency program. Fitness centers consume a lot of water and finding ways for reductions isn’t always easy. By installing water efficient showerheads and faucets, they were able to save over 17,000 gallons of water per month compared to the year before.
