The TECHNOGYM brand

The TECHNOGYM brand was created in 1983 when Nerio Alessandri, a young industrial designer and sport passionate, at the age of 22, designed and built his first piece of fitness equipment in his garage in Cesena. It was a hack squat machine, designed to perform the squat exercise in guided and safer way. Ever since its first products, TECHNOGYM has set itself apart for the huge focus on safety and on reducing the risks of accidents, on ease of use and product design. The brand name TECHNOGYM combines Alessandri’s two passions, technology (TECHNO) and sports (GYM).
It was the first half of the eighties, when the fitness industry was considered a small niche market in Europe, with gyms visited mainly by body-builders and often equipped with very rudimentary machines. Nerio Alessandri sensed, on the one hand, the growing need for more technological and functional physical exercise equipment that respected consumers' health and, on the other hand, the potential appeal of the fitness industry to a wider and more diversified public, hand in hand with the growing social recognition that physical exercise was a major factor in determining a person's mental and physical health as well as their Wellness.
The offer of TECHNOGYM branded products has broadened over the years and now ranges from Fitness Clubs to the Hospitality & Residential sector, HCP (Health, Corporate & Performance) and Home. TECHNOGYM products are now used in 65,000 Wellness centers and more than 200,000 homes worldwide. TECHNOGYM has been the official supplier of the last six editions of the Olympic Games: Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016. On May 3, 2016, TECHNOGYM was listed on the MTA (screen-based stock exchange) managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A.
