Global social campaign impacts communities through physical fitness and equipment donation
January 12, 2017 - Technogym, a world leading wellness company, announced the launch of the 2017 ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ campaign, the brand’s global initiative aimed at reducing obesity, promoting wellness and bringing local communities together.
Now in its fourth iteration, ‘Let’s Move for A Better World’ allows gym members to donate Technogym equipment to local facilities by logging their MOVEs, the brand’s unit for measuring movement, and tracking their workouts on the mywellness cloud, the industry’s first cloud-based open platform. The more physical activity that is recorded, the greater chance participants have to impact wellness enthusiasts in the surrounding area.
This year, more club operators will be able to donate Technogym equipment than ever before thanks to a new awards system that allows every facility to earn donated equipment by meeting predetermined goals for physical activity.
“For the past three years, the ‘Let’s Move for a Better World” initiative has embodied Technogym’s core mission of wellness by motivating and empowering facilities and clubs around the world,” said Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym. “We look forward to bringing more communities together through health and fitness, helping people everywhere live happier and more active lives in 2017.”
Over 122,000 participants in 513 clubs around the world participated in the 2016 ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ campaign, burning a total of 170 million calories and losing over 53,000lbs. The challenge also was a powerful engagement tool to build member loyalty at participating facilities, allowing club owners to boost visits by 29% and increase new memberships by 16%.
The Let’s Move for a Better World campaign runs from March 13-31, 2017. For more information on how to get involved, please visit: https://www.technogym.com/us/letsmove/.
