Gold Coast 2018 partners with Technogym

Fitness equipment manufacturer Technogym has agreed a deal to sponsor the 2018 edition of the Commonwealth Games multi-sport event, which will be staged in Australia’s Gold Coast region.

Technogym will serve as the official fitness equipment supplier of the Games, with its products to be used at the Commonwealth Games Village gym, athletic performance centres and four smaller fitness studios across Queensland.

Technogym’s digital platform, Mywellness Cloud, will also allow athletes to stay connected to their own training programmes during the Games.

“With a résumé 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,” Cameron Murray, general manager of commercial for the Gold Coast 2018 organising committee, said.

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

The Games will run from April 4-15.
