Technogym launches new performance treadmill; opens Melbourne office
December 15, 2017

Leading technology-driven fitness company Technogym has announced the launch of SKILLRUN, a unique performance training treadmill offering a complete solution for both cardio and power workouts.

The first treadmill to combine cardio and power training in a single solution, SKILLRUN has been designed to meet the training requirements of both elite athletes and fitness enthusiast – setting a new benchmark in performance running that answers the needs of all runners, from sprinters to marathon runners and triathletes. 

Featuring the interactive UNITY console –the same platform and interface offered throughout the entire Technogym range - users can access a completely customised workout experience, engaging and motivating them through digital content, personalised training programs and data tracking. SKILLRUN also includes exclusive features specifically designed for athletic and performance training:

• Fast Track Control: adjust speed and incline on the fly while exercising
• Maximum Training Space: a wide belt (55cm/22”) and streamlined frame
• Speed and Incline: up to 30km/h (18.6 mph) speed and incline ranging from -3% to +25%
• QUICKPAD: change speed and gradient with just one touch thanks to dedicated buttons
• Speed-shift: create on-the-fly interval training profiles and switch from one speed to another with a simple touch of the Fast Track Control

SKILLRUN allows the user to perform a variety of unique cardio and power workouts, such as:

• Running Session: the exclusive interactive technology Biofeedback (patent pending) tracks and monitors the main running parameters in real time, providing colour-coded feedback that enables the user to improve their performance.
• Parachute training (patent pending): users can strengthen the resistive power and top-end speed with parachute training that reproduces the feeling of outdoor running with a parachute. Resistance is minimal at the start and increases as the user gains speed.
• Sled training: allows users to train their power, and can reproduce the feeling of pushing a sled on grass. Resistance is high at the start and decreases to a constant rate.

SKILLRUN is also ideal for group training sessions in a class or studio environment.

Located minutes from the Melbourne CBD, the impressive office complex boasts spectacular views over Port Phillip Bay and Albert Park Lake.

With a state-of-the-art connected Technogym Wellness Centre available to all residents, the regional office is home to all Victorian staff including the Key Account Director, Digital Sales Specialist, three Account Managers, National Head Engineer and Service Technicians.

Technogym Australia Managing Director Claudio Bertozzi comments “2017 marks a milestone for Technogym’s presence in Australia, a strategic market for us globally.

“Of particular relevance are our aquatic and leisure accounts in Victoria, along with other medical, residential and high performance facilities in the state. With the Victorian team growing steadily in the last couple of years, we wanted to be closer to the heart of Melbourne’s business district and open an office in addition to our Sydney Head Office.”
