Although it makes use of a pre-existing building – faithful to the brand’s green values – the new fitness facilities within Mahindra Racing’s huge 47,000 sq. ft headquarters are as innovative as you would expect from a team committed to pushing the boundaries of engineering.
Promoting health and wellbeing for a diverse workforce
Formula E is moving towards accreditation with Green Standards, and Mahindra Racing is pushing hard to be the first 3-star team in the paddock in the FIA Sustainability Accreditation program. Our choice of partner had to match our commitment to sustainability and cost-effective solutions, - said David - From our first conversations with Technogym it was apparent that they are highly innovative, committed to health and wellness for all, and serious about sustainability.
Innovative solutions to match all levels of fitness
Technogym has superior equipment, but we also chose them for their attitude and innovative spirit.
Encouraging healthy competition and team work
We have a fully-kitted out gym, live and on-demand training, full connectivity through the Mywellness app, perfect for tracking wellness anytime anywhere, and the ability to assign individual programs to keep staff members motivated and on track - said David - Technogym equipment is great for tracking and measuring data – as you can imagine, that is a huge appeal to our workforce who thrive on numbers! If anyone can beat one of our drivers on even a single metric, it’s cause for celebration. Technogym’s out-of-the-box thinking suits us perfectly.
Designing solutions for professional Formula E drivers
We positioned the gym close to where the drivers spend the majority of their time,” explained David. “It is crucial that the drivers can quickly change their mental state after being in the simulator. Technogym helped us pay close attention to this, by designing the gym so they can see nature and have access to natural light.
Global brand ensures continuity during team travel
Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will start in January 2021, and Mahindra Racing are focused on being the winning team from day one. Their Technogym solutions are all part of the plan. Season 7 is a new era for the Mahindra Racing team, - explained David. - We have new headquarters, a new powertrain provider – and of course our new fitness facility. We are coming in with a winning attitude and won’t accept anything but being front of the grid. Technogym is with us for this team rebirth and we are glad to have their support.
