Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games appoints Technogym as official fitness equipment supplier
January 27, 2020

Technogym has been chosen as Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games’ Official and Exclusive supplier of fitness equipment and digital technologies for the athletes’ preparation. In Tokyo, Technogym will equip 30 training centres for the athletes to train prior to and during the Olympic Games with the main centres being the Olympic and Paralympic Village.

Other training centres will be located at additional competition venues with a wide range of equipment, specifically designed to meet the athletic preparation needs of the different disciplines.

For Technogym, internationally recognised for setting the standard in athletic training, rehabilitation and wellness, Tokyo 2020 represents the eighth Olympic experience after Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and Pyeongchang 2018.

A total number of about 1.200 piece of equipment will be made available to the 15.000 athletes – between Olympic and Paralympic, coming from over 200 different countries and performing in 33 different disciplines. Moreover, Technogym will provide a team of professional athletic trainers to support the athletes as well as all related services (gym layout, installation and technical service).

Tokyo 2020 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 Mywellness cloud, Technogym’s digital platform enabling athletes 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 bring to Tokyo includes all SKILL LINE, created thanks to Technogym’s long-standing experience as Official Supplier to the last seven Olympic Games and the best athletes in the world.

Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym advises “we are very proud of being chosen for the 8th time as the Official Supplier of the Olympic Games. At Technogym, we work every day to create the most innovative products and digital technologies to support athletes all over the world in reaching their goals. This important achievement represents a victory not only for Technogym but for the entire Made-in-Italy system”.

Yoshiro Mori, President of Tokyo 2020, commented “Technogym will be the Official Supplier of fitness equipment at Tokyo. The brand has been providing fitness equipment to training and competition venues for the last seven Olympic Games. Together with Technogym, we are creating the best training centres in order for athletes to reach peak performances during the Tokyo 2020 Games.”

Besides the partnership with the Olympic Games, Technogym is globally recognised as the reference brand for elite sport athletic training.
