Technogym F1 training machine to train like an racing driver

Andrea Divirgilio / April 18, 2013

With the everyday schedule getting tighter and more hectic, getting a trainer within the office or house seems to be the best way out to keep fit and running. Technogym, a name whose Recline Personal Recumbent exercise bike, Jog Now treadmill, Excite Run 700i, or the Kinesis home ‘gold’ gym have all been a part of the fitness regime of the wealthy, have now taken another exciting step in this dimension with their latest equipment inspired by F1 theme . The F1 Technogym training machine, is as much about bringing in fitness and health into your routine, as it is about adding the racing element to the experience of getting fit. With the main focus on 2 main areas of the body, this seems like the latest fad for the F1 fan, who will perhaps spend more time repeating Fernando Alonso or the Felipe Massa health regime.

Most of the exercises on the F1 Technogym, focus on the user’s neck and the forearms, like they would need it on the F1 racing circuit. Through these areas, other parts of the body like the chest, shoulder, and even legs are churned into various movements, that bring in flexibility and give the muscles the necessary exercise. Most of the movements are changeable via the weights which accompany the machine, enabling one to choose the appropriate workload to keep fit. The maximum possible weight is 55-lbs.

For those that may not be aware, the F1 racing demands a lot from the driver physically. Some say, that a driver can loose up to 3 kgs during a full fledged F1 race, due to the extreme heat, and exhaustion which creeps in to move at ultra-high speeds, and that too at odd angles sometime. Alonso and Massa may be the only ones using the machine currently, but henceforth Technogym could be persuaded to launch the F1 trainer in the market, for all fans and geeks alike to keep fit, and get there share of F1 style action.
