"The [Get Berkshire Active] Awards are a fantastic opportunity to see just how much is happening in Berkshire to help communities get active and healthy. As The Wellness Company, Technogym's defining mission is to help people lead healthier and more active lives, so this cause is very close to our hearts. Having been based in Bracknell for over 25 years, we've seen great improvements in the local area during this time, thanks to the driving force of Get Berkshire Active. Technogym supplies fitness equipment to the very best elite athletes and teams, such as Chelsea FC, McLaren, and six editions of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, including the Rio 2016 Games - therefore it is fitting, and a true privilege, to give our support for 'Sports Personality of the Year' at the Awards", Alex Bennett, Technogym Marketing Director.
