Over 140.000 People, 480 Million MOVEs Generated, equating to 200 million calories burned
Cesena– April 10th, 2017 – TECHNOGYM, the world’s leading wellness and fitness company, today announced the amazing results of its ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ campaign - a worldwide social campaign to raise awareness in the fight against obesity and sedentariness, that ran its fourth edition from March 13-31, 2017.
‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ is the biggest social campaign in the industry and embodies TECHNOGYM’s mission to improve wellness on a global scale. Thanks to TECHNOGYM’s ecosystem platform, mywellness, gym members in fitness facilities around the world joined forces to donate their movement and promote wellness and healthy lifestyles in their local community and beyond. The more active the users were, the bigger the donation to the communities.
Participants’ MOVEs – Technogym’s unit for measuring movement – were logged through Technogym’s mywellness cloud, the industry’s first cloud-based open platform.
The TECHNOGYM Ecosystem, is a unique solution that includes connected equipment and mywellness cloud - the first open platform in the industry, connecting people and fitness facilities all over the world. Users can enjoy a fully personalised wellness experience, and facilities can create challenges amongst their members or with other clubs.
The new 2017 edition of the campaign has allowed an increased number of operators to win and donate a piece of TECHNOGYM equipment to a not for profit organisation of their choice, thanks to the new awarding system which enables every facility to win by reaching predefined targets of movement performed.
