Bill Clinton lauds Italian fitness equipment firm

MILAN (AP) — Former U.S. President Bill Clinton lauded the Italian company Technogym for its cooperation with his foundation to promote health, diet and fitness programs in American schools.

Clinton gave the keynote speech Saturday at the inauguration of the Technogym Village in the northern Emilia-Romagna region, the company's new headquarters.

The Clinton Foundation has targeted childhood obesity among its programs to improve personal health, and Clinton said Technogym "has been a great partnership ... promoting health, diet and fitness programs for our kids, starting from the push to eliminate sugary drinks readily available in our schools to offering exercise programs."

Technogym calls itself the world's leader in the wellness and fitness sectors. It is has been an official Olympic supplier, and has supplied equipment to U.S. schools and colleges.
