The benefits of using Technogym equipment

  • Stay connected - You can connect your phone to our machines via Bluetooth and be guided through your sets and repetitions. Even once you leave the equipment, your results will follow you, allowing you to easily track your performance and progression. 
  • Engaging workouts - Some of our Selection 900 machines include Unity Mini which provides you with a virtual coach, offering on-screen guidance and helping you select the right settings for you while staying safe. This feature allows you to easily see your maximum strength and follow visual feedback.
  • Natural movement - Our machines deliver resistance constantly across all types of motions, whilst still enabling fluid movement. The material and shapes of Technogym equipment handles offer improved grip and contact too.
  • Ease of use - If you are unsure of how to use specific equipment, you can find a placard on each machine that offers all of the necessary information, along with a QR code for guidance and tracking. Naturally, you can also speak to one of our fitness team.
  • Increased comfort - The equipment has been carefully designed for comfort and provides ergonomic support for the spinal column. Conveniently, there are also dedicated holders for any of your personal belongings and a towel locking device.
  • Easy setup - Gym equipment can sometimes seem intimidating which is why Technogym include visual flags marking the correct position for your body and all buttons, levers and pins are all in yellow, making them extremely easy to spot.
  • Phone charging - You can’t arrange that post-workout night out when your phone is dead. Place your compatible device in the marked area of the tray and let it refill its juice. Social life saved.
  • Personal entertainment - Watch your favourite Netflix show or the latest Youtube videos whilst you workout.  Get your groove on with your go-to Spotify or YouTube playlist, or browse the most popular websites.
  • Indoor exercise with an outdoor feel - Let natural and urban landscapes captivate you while you’re working out. Be amazed by where your travels around the world can take you.
