Technogym’s Co-Founder Visits Australia

Pierluigi Alessandri has been working side by side in building up the “Wellness Company” with his older brother Nerio – Technogym’s Chairman and Founder – since the very first day on 20 October 1983 when they were, respectively, 18 and 22.
Over the past 32 years, Technogym has grown from the 2 brothers to 2,200 people across 14 subsidiaries worldwide. Technogym Australia, which is headquartered in Sydney and opened in 2007, is the second youngest branch of the Italian group and comprises 30 people.

This is Pierluigi’s second time in Australia.

“My first time,” he says, “marked a milestone for Technogym, as we were celebrating our first nomination as Official Suppliers of fitness equipment at the Olympic Games. Since Sydney 2000, thousands of upcoming and current Champions train with Technogym, including the Rio Olympic Games in 2016. A lot has changed in 15 years, in 2000 we were a relatively small B2B European company, now we are becoming more and more a global consumer ‘lifestyle’ brand, however what drives us is the same mission: to help and inspire people to live a better life, achieving their personal Wellness wherever they are: in the gym, at work, at home and on the move – thanks to the brand new Technogym mobile App.”

Pierluigi’s visit comes ahead of the English Premier League Champions Chelsea FC visiting with their elite squad to Australia to play Sydney FC at ANZ Stadium 2 June, marking the team’s return to Australia after 41 years. Among a hundred international sports team training with Technogym, Chelsea FC has been training with Technogym’s top-of-the-range ARTIS® equipment, as well as its range of free weights, benches and accessories, creating a fully comprehensive gym that caters for the club’s every training need from the first team through to the Academy and Ladies.

Carlos Lalin, Chelsea first team fitness coach, says “Technogym has a reputation for excellence in the design and manufacture of fitness equipment for elite athletes. As one of the leading clubs in the world, it is natural that we should work with the best. We are pleased with our choice and hope this will help us achieve even more in the coming years.”
