World leader in wellness and fitness equipment and technologies renews longstanding partnership with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and Exercise is Medicine (EIM) initiative through to 2020
Since 2010 the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and Technogym have joined forces in the global health initiative, Exercise is Medicine (EIM), to encourage health care providers to include exercise in patients’ treatment plans. Both Technogym and the ACSM are committed to the promotion of physical activity as integral to the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
Through the ongoing partnership, Technogym has helped to increase the EIM initiative’s reach even further internationally. Technogym, internationally known as ‘The Wellness Company’, has long promoted the benefits of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle to preventative health, through the unique Technogym Ecosystem it has developed. The mywellness platform connects fitness equipment, the first cloud computing platform in the industry, apps and wearable devices to allow people to seamlessly manage their lifestyle anywhere and anytime: reinventing the way people access their wellness and health. Other activity includes its annual ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ social campaign which raises awareness of the benefits of regular exercise and inspires people to move more.
“We are proud of the positive impact of our long-standing partnership with the American College of Sports Medicine,” said Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym. “Both Technogym and the American College of Sports Medicine share a commitment to promoting the health benefits of physical activity, and we look forward to continuing our good work and helping to improve the health of the global population.” “The international expansion of the Exercise is Medicine program has been extraordinary, and Technogym has fueled that growth,” said Jim Whitehead, ACSM chief executive officer and executive vice president. “We are grateful for Technogym’s contributions to helping us spread the message that better health and an improved quality of life can be achieved through exercise.”
