Technogym extends Olympic association with Pyeongchang 2018 deal

Fitness equipment manufacturer Technogym has been named as a partner of the upcoming winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Technogym will serve as the official fitness equipment supplier of the Games, which run from February 9-25.

It will mark the seventh time that Technogym has supported the Olympics, having supplied a similar service for the Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016 Games.

Technogym will equip 13 centres in Pyeongchang and Gangneung for athletes to train prior to and during the Games. The main training centre will be in Pyeongchang and will be open to all athletes during the event. The other 12 facilities will be located at additional competition venues and will be specifically designed for the preparation needs of the respective disciplines.

In total, about 1,000 pieces of equipment will be made available to the 3,000 athletes that are set to compete at the Games. Technogym will also provide a team of professional athletic trainers to support athletes and related services such as gym layout, installation and technical service.

All equipment will be fully integrated with the Mywellness cloud, Technogym’s digital platform, which allows athletes to stay connected to their personal training programs.

Technogym will provide a similar service at this year’s Commonwealth Games, which will be held in Australia’s Gold Coast region from April 4-15.
