We are proud of this outstanding achievement and we want to thank our members and Campbelltown’s local community; thanks to whom hundreds of students at Ambarvale High School will now benefit and be able to embrace a more active lifestyle.”
The Let’s Move for a Better World Challenge was made possible thanks to the mywellness cloud platform. It is a worldwide interactive competition created by Technogym that calls upon fitness and leisure facilities to join in and put their members’ training to good use. During this year’s 3 week contest a total of 80,000 participants in 17 countries completed more than 315 million MOVEs, burning a total of 140 million calories and losing a staggering 20,000kg.
“This campaign is the result of Technogym’s 30-year long commitment to improving Wellness around the world. The campaign is helping to build a more sustainable society and educational platform for the younger generation on the importance of health and wellness” – Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym.
