The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have chosen Technogym as the official and exclusive supplier of fitness equipment and digital technologies for the athletes’ preparation. For Technogym, internationally recognized for setting the standard in athletic training, rehabilitation and wellness, Tokyo 2020 represents the brand’s eighth Olympic experience after Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and Pyeongchang 2018.
“We are very proud of being chosen for the eighth time as the official supplier of the Olympic Games,” said Nerio Alessandri, the president and founder of Technogym. “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.”
In Tokyo, Technogym will equip 30 training centers for athletes to train prior to and during the Olympic Games. The main centers will be the Olympic and Paralympic Village. Other training centers will be located at additional competition venues, with a wide range of equipment specifically designed to meet the athletic preparation needs of different disciplines.
A total number of about 1,200 pieces 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 athletes, as well as all related services: gym layout, installation and technical service.
“Technogym will be the official supplier of fitness equipment at Tokyo,” said Yoshiro Mori, the president of Tokyo 2020. “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 centers in order for athletes to reach peak performances during the Tokyo 2020 Games.”
Tokyo 2020 athletes will have the possibility to train on a selection of the best and most innovative products, covering training areas such as cardio, strength and functional training.
