Cardiovascular Fitness Equipment

Manufacturer

Technogym Spa, Italy

Red Dot: Best of the Best

Elegant training partner

Today’s body workout programmes are designed to systematically prevent health risk factors such as hypertension or obesity and help reduce stress. The Recline Personal is a highly contemporary fitness equipment for moderate cardiovascular training. Pairing architecturally curved lines with carefully combined glass and aluminium materials, this device fits into and matches almost any interior with its clear language of form and impressive elegance. Furthermore, the Recline Personal offers the highest possible degree of comfort and entertainment. A generously large 15-inch screen allows users while working out to operate the “Visioweb”: a touch-screen platform that offers Internet access, television, games or allows users to watch video courses explaining the next workout exercises. This entertainment aspect is complemented by easily accessible docks for connecting USB devices, an iPod or iPhone. The ergonomic seat, which was developed in cooperation with manufacturer Vitra, also offers a satisfying experience. This breathable seat has been designed to adapt to the body during a workout, thus helping the user to maintain the right posture at any time and perform all workout movements correctly and comfortably. Another outstanding design feature of the Recline Personal is its low crossbar. In combination with the broad opening between the seat and the pedals it gives users easy access to the machine.

Statement by the jury
