Leading Australian facilities partner with 2017 Let’s Move for a Better World campaign

Leading Australian facilities partner with 2017 Let’s Move for a Better World campaign
March 14, 2017

Two of Australia's most high profile aquatic, fitness and recreation facilities - the Allianz Stadium Club in Sydney’s Moore Park and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre - have partnered with Technogym’s 2017 Let’s Move for a Better World social campaign.

From yesterday (Monday 13th March) through to Friday 31st March 2017, those who train on Technogym equipment at participating facilities will have the chance to contribute to a good cause and donate pieces of Technogym equipment to a non-profit organisation within their local community.

Enabling participants to get fit while making a difference for others, the more people train, the more they donate.

To take part in ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’, the public can join any participating gym and collect as many ‘MOVEs’ (Technogym’s unit of measure for movement) as they can.

By downloading the Technogym App and using the Gym Finder to locate participating facilities they can start moving with participants able to train for free in all gyms taking part in the campaign.

Thanks to the Technogym Ecosystem - the first open platform in the industry which includes equipment, services, content and programs - and mywellness cloud, Technogym’s cloud computing platform, participants will be able to collect MOVEs and create a challenge amongst friends at a participating clubs, gathering training data and creating a performance ranking to share with the community or on social media.

Technogym’s defining mission is to help people around the world be more active, healthier, and happier and launched the global ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ campaign four years ago to help tackle the global issue of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, one of the most serious epidemics of the 21st century.

Last year, 513 clubs across 21 countries took part in the challenge and approximately 122,000 participants tracked their workouts on Technogym equipment, resulting in 400 million MOVEs (Technogym’s unit of measurement for movement) and 170 million calories burned.

In Australia, Melbourne’s WaterMarc Banyule took out the top spot, with the club’s members collecting more than 1.7 million MOVES.
