Combining the best of French couture and Italian, erm, home gym equipment, Technogym for Dior is a unique collab that raises the bar for adding style to workouts. A limited edition collection – of course – Technogym for Dior comprises a treadmill, balance ball and a 'bench' that holds a range of workout aids. And trés chic workout aids, at that.

Technogym has long made very premium and – by the standards of gym equipment – stylish workout tools. It has a boutique in Harrods, and supplied the athletes of Tokyo 2020 with Technogym equipment. This, however, is a step up in stush and perhaps the ultimate home gym for dedicated followers of fashion. 

As the press release puts it, 'With the shared objective of inspiring a  lifestyle guided by the values of health and excellence Technogym innovation meets Dior elegance for an exciting design series of limited-edition home fitness products.'

As you'd imagine, Technogym supplied the engineering expertise on this project, while Dior supplied the design je ne sais quoi, and their logo. The result is a striking and minimalist, largely black and white paint-job. Technogym's angular yellow logo looks almost punky and graffiti-like in this context 

Keeping it simple, the Dior x Technogym collection is essentials only. There's a treadmill for cardio, a wellness ball for core exercises and that multifunction bench for resistance training. 

TECHNOGYM MY RUN FOR DIOR 

This stylish, compact and quiet treadmill connects to your tablet and offers a wide range of  on-demand running and walking workouts. By simply placing a tablet on the MYRUN  console users can choose the on-demand workout by their favorite trainer. 

TECHNOGYM BENCH FOR DIOR 

This innovative bench offers a maximum variety of exercises options in a small space. Its houses a series of dumbbells, elastics and knuckles that let you perform  'over 200 exercises'. An extensive library of on-demand workouts is available on the  Technogym App, natch.

TECHNOGYM BALL FOR DIOR 

Designed to keep you on the move even while sitting, Technogym Ball is both a seat and a  wellness tool, with a complete exercise program for flexibility, toning and balance. 

Technogym founder Nerio Alessandri says, "This shared  goal of excellence gives life to a limited series of innovative Technogym products interpreted  with the Maison Dior’s unique allure. Created to inspire the concept of wellness with new  generations, it also offers people the opportunity to live a unique and irresistible experience” 

That's all the info we have on this collection for now, and there's only the one pick, but Technogym for Dior will be available just in time to get you fit for 2022 and to reinvent your home workout space…

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years, during which time he has attended every event going, apart from Apple ones, as he mysteriously doesn't get invited to them. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. 

Duncan's current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. Duncan also edits T3's golf section because fuck it, someone has to. Dave Usher does all the real work on that bit, though. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
