EVCS, one of the largest electric vehicle (EV) fast charging network operators on the West Coast, has announced a collaboration with Fitness International, LLC, a leading health club operator in the United States, to install fast charging stations at fitness centres throughout southern California.
EVCS, founded in 2018, owns and operates the largest network of fast charging stations within the city of Los Angeles, which is home to over 250,000 EVs. EVCS continues to expand its network with a focus on installing charging stations at key junctures and commercial sites with high-traffic areas and points of interest, including restaurants, grocery stores, shopping malls, fitness centres, transit centres and city parks.
Gustavo Occhiuzzo, CEO of EVCS, said, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Fitness International to provide our fast chargers at their southern California fitness centres. In association with one of the largest health club operators in the US, EVCS is bringing EV drivers the convenience of fast charging while they work out, making it easier and more convenient for Americans to incorporate the EV lifestyle into their everyday lives. Expanding our network is critical in accelerating the electrification of transportation in the US.”
As part of the collaboration, EVCS will install and manage the ongoing operation of its convenient and accessible fast charging stations, powered by 100% renewable energy at certain LA Fitness and Esporta Fitness centres. As a commercial site participant, Fitness International will benefit from EVCS’ revenue-sharing program, and experience new and increased visibility by providing a convenient amenity to a fast-growing market segment.
Andrea Ojeda, VP of Marketing, Fitness International, LLC, said, “We are excited to provide these fast-charging stations to our members and guests with electric vehicles. Charging up while you’re working out in select LA Fitness and Esporta Fitness parking lot locations will be another convenient amenity we’re happy to provide to our members.”
The project with Fitness International is the latest in a series of EVCS announcements demonstrating the company’s rapid growth in expanding its EV infrastructure and network. EVCS recently expanded its business model by partnering with iKahan Media to combine its EVCS chargers with state-of-the-art LED screens for digital advertising.
