Technogym signs on as Gold Coast 2018 official equipment supplier
April 28, 2017

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) has announced Technogym as its Official Fitness Equipment Supplier for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

Having equipped the last five editions of the Olympic Games, Technogym will equip GC2018 training facilities across Queensland for our incredible Commonwealth athletes.

This will see Technogym installed in all Commonwealth Games training facilities, including the Village Gym, athletic performance centres and four smaller fitness studios across Queensland.

Technogym founder and Chief Executive Nerio Alessandri said their entire team are delighted to be an Official Supplier for the Games, stating “we are very proud of being chosen as Official Supplier of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

“This achievement represents an important recognition of our commitment in research and innovation in order to create the most advanced equipment and digital technology for the world’s elite athletes”

GOLDOC General Manager Commercial, Cameron Murray said Technogym had proven experience delivering elite equipment at major events.

Murray added “with a resume that includes equipment supply and sponsorship of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and numerous Olympic Games including Rio 2016, Technogym are a great addition to the ever expanding GC2018 Sponsor Family.

“Technogym will supply the necessary cardio, strength, high performance and recovery apparatus to ensure our athlete’s warm up, warm down and general training needs are taken care of during GC2018.”

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.

Solutions 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 personalised 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.

More than 65,000 Wellness centers and 200,000 private homes in the world are equipped with Technogym with the company having been the official fitness equipment supplier for the last five editions of the Olympic Games: Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.
