Technogym to showcase eco-friendly range
Dubai, May 12, 2010
Technogym, a leading provider of premium fitness appliances, will showcase its latest range of eco-friendly products at an upcoming major event for the hospitality industry in Dubai.
The Hotel Show 2010 will be held from May 18 to 20 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
“Technogym’s presence at the Hotel Show 2010 is to confirm our leadership in the hotel and spa industry and position Technogym as an eco-friendly green solutions provider to the hotel industry and not only an equipment manufacturer,” said Christian Dietrich, managing director, Technogym Emirates.
“Technogym as the industry leader provides tastefully designed and intelligently engineered products to offer green solutions,” he added.
“This year Technogym will also be launching its latest addition to the already very extensive cardio equipment line with stunning technology features thus representing a revolution in the cardiovascular equipment.”
Technogym will showcase its new products – Green Group Cycle, Visio Web and Jog Now. It will also feature Club 2.0 and the Wellness Suite Solution concept comprising of the Kinesis Personal, Run Personal and Wellness Tools.
The Green Group Cycle channels the energy produced on exercise bikes into the electric network which can be used to power the gym’s electrical appliances. So the gym of the future becomes a mini, self-sufficient power station, thanks to the energy produced by the physical movements of its users.
Estimates forecast that every bike, when used at medium intensity, can produce about 120 watt, the energy to power a high luminosity bulb. This means that an average gym, equipped with about 40 machines could become completely self-sufficient as far as lighting is concerned during peak times when all the machines are in use, a statement said.
Club 2.0, a totally new approach for clubs to better understand their members, focuses on people’s aspirations and helps understand the way in which this determines how they use the gym. This unique tool enables the club to match customer experiences to their aspirations and goals, the statement said.
VISIOweb is the first integrated display offering internet, TV and iPod connections during workouts. With VISIOweb, fitness enthusiasts can dedicate more time to their health while twittering, contacting friends on Facebook and keeping up-to-date with all the latest news.
The Wellness Suite connects with the needs of Technogym’s clients to see complete solutions to be integrated in their current hotels, rooms and gyms, the statement added. – TradeArabia News Service
