Technogym has been McLaren Center's Official Fitness Partner since 2004, when it began developing personalized solutions for the McLaren Mercedes Team's drivers. The center, which includes machines from the Excite, Kinesis and Selection lines, is also open to all other team members and employees. Formula One drivers require strength and endurance in order to handle the stress they are subjected to in the single-seat cockpit. Their training is mainly based on strength, flexibility and cardiovascular exercises. The names Technogym and McLaren both stand for advanced technology and innovation.
