Technogym, the Wellness Company, was founded in 1983 by Wellness visionary, Nerio Alessandri. Since then Technogym has grown to become a world leader in the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art fitness equipment and solutions, and is renowned for innovative design and future-proof technology. Technogym embodies the philosophy of Wellness: a balanced lifestyle achieved through regular exercise, healthy eating and positive mental attitude.
Technogym has been the McLaren Technology Centre Official Fitness Partner since 2004, developing and providing personalised solutions for the McLaren F1 drivers. To handle the stress they are subjected to in the cockpit, the drivers build their endurance and strength by using a mixture of strength, flexibility and cardiovascular exercises. The bespoke Technogym F1 Training Machine was designed specifically for Formula 1 drivers, and is the only piece of equipment that comes close to replicating how the neck muscles are used when driving.
The McLaren Technology Centre, which is open to all team members and employees as part of McLaren’s corporate wellness program, includes machines from the Excite, Kinesis and Selection lines. McLaren Racing recognises that it is important to look after its people, as health and well-being is a key part of its strategy to build a sustainable team.
