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.'

- I tried the Carrera Impel im-2 – the best cheap ebike so far
- E-Trends Trekker is a cheap E-MTB that is better off on roads than mountains
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.
