For Technogym, internationally recognised as setting the standard in the sector of technologies for athletic preparation, rehabilitation and wellness, this is the sixth Olympic experience after Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008 and London 2012. In Rio, Technogym will provide a full range of equipment for the main training centre (approximately 2000 sqmt) at the Olympic Village in Barra da Tijuca open to all athletes taking part in the Games, and will equip 15 centres and warm-up areas specifically designed for the different disciplines at the competition venues.

Technogym is expected to supply 1,000 pieces of equipment and to install the Mywellness cloud digital platform to allow athletes to connect their personal training programmes directly with the equipment or with their mobile devices. Moreover, Technogym will provide a team of 50 professional athletic trainers to support the athletes as well as all related services (gym layout, installation and technical service).

Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym said: "We are very proud to have been chosen for the 6th time as the official supplier of the Olympic Games. This important achievement represents a victory for the whole Technogym team and a strong reference to our products' innovation and quality standards," adding, "Rio 2016 will also represent a unique social opportunity to promote wellness in Brazil and in the whole of Latin America and to get increasing numbers of people interested in regular physical exercise".

Rio 2016 Organizing Committee President Carlos Nuzman commented, "The needs of athletes are always at the forefront of our thinking and so ensuring we have top-of-the-range equipment available for their use is vital. We are going to work together over the next two years."
