Technogym, internationally recognised for setting the standard in athletic training, rehabilitation and wellness, has been appointed by the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) as the Official Fitness Equipment Supplier.
Technogym will equip all the training facilities, including the Commonwealth Games Athletes Village Gym, athletic performance centres and four smaller fitness studios across Queensland. The athletes competing at the Games will come from the 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth and compete in 23 sport disciplines.
The athletes will have the possibility to train on a selection of the best and most innovative products covering all training areas such as cardio, strength and functional training. All Technogym equipment will be fully integrated with the Mywellness cloud, the Technogym digital platform enabling them to stay connected to their own personal training program directly on the equipment itself and via their mobile devices.
The state of the art solution that Technogym will take to the Games includes the newly released
SKILLROW, the first indoor rowing equipment designed to improve anaerobic power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular abilities in one solution. Athletes will also have available solutions like SKILLMILL, the only non-motor-driven functional training product - specifically designed for Athletic Performance Training – which allows athletes to train power, speed, stamina and agility exercises with the same product.
The training facilities will include also EXCITE, the widest and most complete cardio training range in the world featuring UNITY, the latest generation “internet of things” based interface, designed to ensure a fully personalized training experience, which allows the athletes to access to their personal training programs via the Technogym’s Mywellness cloud. Kinesis, the Technogym patented technology, will allow athletes to explore the freedom of 360° movement to perform exercises aimed at improving balance, flexibility and posture and simulating sport specific movements.
