The very concept of Wellness proposed by Technogym and the Wellness Foundation is a combination of physical activity, diet and positive mental approach. In fact, gymnastics and more broadly speaking any kind of physical activity, if combined with a balanced diet and a positive mental approach towards life are the key components to a healthy lifestyle. This balance has been graphed out in the Wellness Pyramid, a simple and effective scheme that displays the requirements of physical activity necessary to carry out a specific diet.
