Kinesis Personal by Technogym is a designer home or office training equipment that offers more than 200 workout moves in less than one square meter.
Established in 1983, Technogym is a world leader in supplying fitness and wellness products, services and solutions. The Italian brand exports 90 per cent of its production to more than 100 countries, including more than 100,000 homes and 65,000 wellness centres, in addition to numerous offices, hotels and spas.
In the sphere of professional sports, Technogym is an eight-time official equipment supplier to the Olympic Games, including the 2021 games in Tokyo. It has long-term partnerships with Ferrari F1 Team, Luna Rossa and Alinghi sailing Teams, as well as AC Milan and Chelsea football clubs, among others.
Technogym’s Kinesis Personal was developed by Technogym’s R&D Department in collaboration with the renowned architect and designer Antonio Citterio and his assistant Toan Nguyen.
Explaining the reason behind this collaborates, Citterio says: “Technogym was the first to introduce fine design into the fitness and wellness world. Technogym has grasped the importance of design and decided to invest in it. Consequently, design is now a fundamental element of the product and is an inseparable part of the industrial process.”
Made for coordinated movements using resistance, Kinesis Personal is engineered for workouts that combine strength, flexibility and balance. Kinesis Personal takes what the body does naturally, and then adds the appropriate amount of resistance, as determined by its innovative formulation.
Kinesis Personal also incorporates Technogym’s patented three-dimensional Fullgravity technology, which allows for resistance to vary in accordance with the increase in range and angle of movement. As a result, it activates complete kinetic chains, rather than individual muscles.
Kinesis Personalis is available in two different versions. Heritage, fitted with oak wooden bars, is available in 4 colours: Black, Cream, Brown leather finish and the new Gold Limited Edition. The latter is manufactured using a gold leaf technique inspired by Florentine craftsmanship. The second version is Vision, covered with polished steel and perfectly mounted panels that create a mirror finish.
“With Technogym,” says Citterio, “we strove to implement the design content of fitness machines to allow them to become an active part of interior design projects for domestic spaces. I believe every object should be a pleasure to look at. The idea is that working out should be something you do because you enjoy it.”
