TECHNOGYM OFFICIAL SUPPLIER TO THE FOOTBALL WORLD CUP 2014
The company supports the National teams of Italy, Brazil and Russia with innovative gyms and medical and sports consultancy services
In Brazil too, Technogym has been the official supplier for athletic training. After Italy 90, US 94, France 98, Japan and Korea 2002, Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010, the Technogym adventure alongside the national champions continues. In order to provide optimal athletic training for sporting champions, Technogym, the world's leading provider of equipment, services and solutions for fitness and rehabilitation, provides players with its expertise, training centres and many years of experience in the highest levels of international sport.
The partnership between Technogym and the national football teams serves as further confirmation of the interest of sporting professionals in athletic training with state-of-the-art equipment.
Technogym offers more than simple technical support to teams - it also provides medical and sports consultancy services, thanks to the experience gained at international level in the world of professional sports. The company has been the Official Supplier for the last six editions of the Olympic Games, as well as for the Alinghi and Luna Rossa teams in the America's Cup's sailing competition and for a host of the most prestigious national and international clubs.
At Coverciano, home to the technical-federal centre of the Italian National team, Technogym has equipped a gym for strength training, cardiovascular fitness and rehabilitation, for the team's period of training before leaving for Brazil.
A second centre was also installed inside the headquarters of the Portobello Safari Resort in Mangaritiba (Rio de Janeiro). Here, the Azzurri were provided with the most innovative machines and solutions for cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training and rehabilitation, thus ensuring performance levels remained high, preparing the team for the close encounters awaiting them in the World Cup.
For Brazil's champions, meanwhile, a centre containing state-of-the-art machines and solutions for athletic training was provided at the national team's headquarters at Granja Comary Teresopolis.
Technogym has also equipped two centres for the Russian national team: the first of these at the national team's headquarters at the Swiss Hotel in Moscow, and the second at the Brazilian site that hosted national football players and staff at the San Raphael Country Hotel in Itu, Sao Paulo.
