When Sports Meet Innovation and Entrepreneurship,...
At present, our sport industry booms since it is related to health. So when sports meet innovation and entrepreneurship, what will arise? 


What trick will a small rope turn?  Some graduate students from Shanghai University of Sport in preference for freestyle rope skipping not only get addicted to such type of sport but also make it into a career. In 2009, an undergraduate startup named "Yuedong Jump Rope" was born.  "Yuedong" has been constantly developing new products over the years, including 7 items of patent developed independently. Bead section rope, for instance, makes rhythmic sound of hitting the ground when being waved and solves the problem that the jump rope is easily twined after jumping for a while.  Such bead section rope has been sold to Thailand and Malaysia, which will be promoted to Europe and even the global market in the future.  These youngsters with great passion said, "Jump and make every tissue and cell full of dream! ”


Obesity besets Chinese of all ages; losing weight is a dream for all fat people.  In 2005, "Dianfeng Fitness" was founded in Shanghai University of Sport. Relying upon powerful sci-tech support and faculty of university and focusing on healthy fitness, this enterprise has grown to a complex of fully closed fitness training camp, scientific research institute of fitness, Meicun fitness APP and "Cloud Fitness".   Wherein, Teenager Fitness Summer Camp is the world's largest "alliance of plump teenagers", which has helped numerous plump teenagers accomplish physical and mental transformation by the first 5D fitness education system in China.  Last year and the year before, Dianfeng Fitness acquired the venture capital of Round A and Round B successively. 


Yangpu is a traditional sport district, which includes Shanghai University of Sport and China Table Tennis College and two national reserved sport talent cultivation bases. It has been rated as "cradle of swimming talents" nationwide for nine consecutive years and one of the earliest pilot areas of prioritizing sports in life and implementing 15-min sport life circle in Shanghai.  This year, District Sports Bureau was awarded with two heavy weight honors--advanced unit of national sports system and advanced collective of national mass sports. 


In this first national innovation and entrepreneurship demonstration base in Shanghai, sports and innovation and entrepreneurship meet and produce innumerable achievements.  Since the "12th Five-Year Plan" was implemented, the sport industry in Yangpu District has rapidly emerged, facilitating the annual average growth rate of the regional industry to reach 68%.  Nike Greater China Headquarters Campus, Alisports and other giants in the industry have been settled in succession to constantly improve the agglomeration of industry.  Till 2016, the District had a total of 674 sport enterprises and the industry had a total scale of RMB 7.95 billion, both of which quadrupled compared with that of five years ago.  Wherein, sport service sector had RMB 7.93 billion, accounting for as high as 95% of the service industry and creating over 20000 jobs.  At the moment, Yangpu District is actively founding a regional national sport industry demonstration base--"Great Pentagon Square", working together with Shanghai University of Sports to build a sport-and-health industry circle, establishing a regional sport industry-university-research alliance, and gathering some leading figures and organizations in the industry. 


Two years ago, Alisports was founded in Shanghai Yangpu Sport Center when a team of fewer than 20 people started their entrepreneurial dream of sports.  The company's CEO Zhang Dazhong said that the office was arranged in Yangpu at that time in an attempt to neighbor sports to experience the atmosphere of sports all the time. Supported by Yangpu District, Alisports has spared no effort to develop national digital gym platform and mass fitness service platform. To date, it has provided all kinds of services for nearly 10 million members of tens of thousands of gyms nationwide and driven dozens of enterprises concerned to settle in Yangpu.


When sports meet innovation and entrepreneurship, it brings healthy lifestyle to more citizens as well.  So long as you spend RMB 99, you can do exercises in a professional gym for a whole month and do aerobics guided by a professional coach. Sounds too good to be true? Indeed, Lefit located in Yangpu Gym is such a public fitness room that runs 24 hours a day.   This fitness room introduces the concept of "Internet+fitness" and launches all-weather fitness card in the price of RMB 199/month and day card in the price of RMB 99/month. The day card can be used at 6:00-16:00 from Monday to Friday and 6:00-12:00 on Saturday and Sunday. In merely 3 months' time, it has attracted 2100 members, wherein, those aged 40-60 years old account for 15%. Here you can often see elders rarely seen in other fitness rooms. Lefit not only has fighting aerobics, slim yoga, leg and buttock fitness and other group aerobics favored by young people but also customizes FOC Chinese style, Tai Chi FIT and other programs for those middle-aged and elders. In addition, it even creates a "jumping castle" for babies under 4 years old. 


Life changes because of exercises and dream ignites because of sports.  Sports meet innovation and entrepreneurship to collide glaring sparks--the sport industry can fly somewhere higher and farther by adding wings of innovation; and innovation and entrepreneurship becomes more healthy, powerful and energetic supported by sports.
