Technogym at Salone del Mobile 2012
At Salone del Mobile 2012 in Milan which concluded just a few days ago, Technogym introduced a new elliptical to the Personal Line, Cross Personal, which combines the Technogym experience with design by Antonio Citterio.
Cross Personal is the first elliptical from the Personal Line that connects to the Internet thanks to the VISIOWEB integrated display.
VISIOWEB is an intuitive touch screen display with simple visual applications that allows those who want to work to connect directly to e-mail or allows for those who want to relax to access fun online content on social networking sites.
The VISIOWEB display also offers the possibility to access the TV, iPhone/iPod and a wide range of training programs.
From the operational point of view, Cross Personal offers an ideal workout for all types of users, including from beginners to more advanced.
The elliptical motion is smooth and with low impact on joints. At the same time, it helps you burn more calories thanks to the combined action of the upper and lower limbs.
Other tools that are already part of the Personal Line include:
- Kinesis Personal, the piece of furniture designed to perform over 200 exercises for toning, flexibility and balance
- Run Personal, the exclusive interactive treadmill
- Recline Personal, the first bike to ride with the internet
- Wellness Tools and Wellness accessories for home or travel that are perfect for training with the Personal Line
Here is a video interview with Nerio Alessandri and Designer Antonio Citterio:
Interesting aspects emphasized in this interview include the value of design in the Wellness Experience, the key role of the architect during the design and creation of Technogym products, the entrepreneur's role in the success of a project and, last but not least, the process of creating a product based on the needs of its future users and basic characteristics and priority such as space, light and colors.
