Following its experience as the official supplier of five Olympic Games - Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008 and London 2012 – TECHNOGYM was chosen as the official and exclusive supplier for the 2016 Rio Games. As the official and exclusive supplier of the Olympic Games, TECHNOGYM was involved in the design and installation of athletic training centers in Olympic facilities in Rio de Janeiro. The company installed 15 athletic training centers, using around 1,200 pieces of equipment, which were available to 10,500 athletes from 205 different countries performing in 42 different disciplines. In addition, TECHNOGYM provided 50 professional trainers to manage the athletic training centers, support athletes and offer related services (gym layout, installation and technical assistance) to everyone that took part in the event.
TECHNOGYM’s commitment to the Rio 2016 Olympics went way beyond the role of official supplier of athlete training centers and focused on making a concrete contribution to the legacy that the Olympic movement wants to leave in the city of Rio de Janeiro. TECHNOGYM launched the ‘Let’s Move for Rio’ social program at Rio 2016 with the goal of donating some of the products installed in the training centers as part of the post-Olympics legacy. Through TECHNOGYM’s digital platform, MyWellness cloud, during the Olympics, athletes and Wellness lovers were able to measure their physical activity - both on TECHNOGYM products and thanks to the TECHNOGYM app that can be downloaded free - and transformed it into equipment that TECHNOGYM donated to 22 public gyms in the most disadvantaged communities in Rio.
