Obama will train on Technogym: Wellness? "Yes we can"!
Technogym is already hard at work preparing the American President's personal gym at the G8 summit in Italy
The President Barack Obama has chosen Technogym's MADE IN ITALY vision of wellness. During his stay in at the G8 summit in Aquila in July, the American leader will be able to enjoy working out between meetings and talks with world leaders thanks to the Technogym MADE IN ITALY equipment installed in his private suite in L'Aquila.
The Technogym technicians, together with staff from the White House, are already hard at work fitting out Barack Obama's personal gym, as the President is a well-known physical exercise fan.
A latest generation treadmill based on the same technology supplied by Technogym to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and Kinesis Personal, the first fitness machine to become a recognised icon of contemporary design, will be waiting for the American President. Given the minimal amount of time that the President will have free between his many commitments these machines have been chosen for carefully focussed exercise sessions aimed at releasing the tension of the G8 summit which is likely to be particularly tense and demanding given the topical issues on the world agenda.
Kinesis Personal is the supreme expression of Made in design excellence and technology, in a sector, which unlike that of fashion and cuisine has always been dominated by Americans.
Created from the dynamic synergy of Technogym know-how and Antonio Citterio's exclusive design talents, Kinesis Personal offers unique, personalised training and a range of exercises from simple movements to specific combined workouts for the whole body.
The treadmill that Barack Obama will be using, is a triumph of advanced technology, tried and tested by champions at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.
President Obama will also have the possibility to relax and stretch his muscles on FLEXability, the innovative Technogym stretching couch, ideal for short breaks between meeting due to the possibility to use it in your suit and tie.
Technogym boasts a long-standing relationship with the American Government, as the previous President, George Bush, also used Made in Technogym equipment on his many international missions. During his stay at the Olympics in , for example, President Bush used a gym equipped by Technogym (the exclusive official supplier to the Beijing Games) at his Headquarters in the Westin Hotel.
