Technogym launches new solution for athletic performance training
Technogym, the leading producer of design and technology-driven fitness equipment and solutions, has launched the SKILLMILL, an innovative non-motorised product that combines power, speed, stamina and agility training.
The SKILLMILL’s MULTIDRIVE technology (patent pending) enables users to select different levels of reactive resistance, from zero to maximum and by simply shifting gear, it’s possible to switch quickly from resistance-free running to an all-out sled push.
The use of the Multidrive technology results in two main benefits for the SKILLMILL user:
• Increased Metabolic Rate
By shifting gear to increase the resistance then even power walking on the SKILLMILL will significantly increase the metabolic rate of the user due to the extra effort required to move the treadmill.
• Maximum Muscle Activation
According to EMG (Electromyography) - studies conducted by Sports & Rehab Engineering Lab, University of Padova, Italy - there is a “significantly higher activation of the posterior chain, in particular glutes and hamstrings, compared to traditional treadmills”. The sled pushing exercise on the
SKILLMILL delivers greater activation of the hip extensor muscles and the same level as glute-targeted exercises.
SKILLMILL epitomises the Athletic Performance Training methodology:
• Expand Work Capacity – to achieve the most effective results and benefits for the main physical skills of Power, Speed, Stamina and Agility, this principle focuses on using SKILLMILL for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
• Enhance Abilities – this new training discipline also improves the body’s ability to carry out complex and difficult movements that require neuromuscular coordination, from basic gradual progression, to advanced fundamental movements.
• Ensure Full Safety – preventing injury and avoiding health risks through poor posture, incorrect form and wrong movements is a critical aspect of the Athletic Performance Training methodology and is embraced by SKILLMILL’s ergonomic design and also the on-board console that displays vital health statistics.
SKILLMILL is operated and controlled by the force applied exclusively by its users. To speed up, they move to the front of the surface and to slow down, they move to the back. It accelerates quickly from a cold start and goes the same pace athletes go. The ideal solution for a sustainable facility, it helps reduce electricity costs and carbon footprint.
Performance Monitoring and Tracking
SKILLMILL offers a range of connectivity options to maximise performance and results in full safety.
SKILLMILL is fully integrated within mywellness, the Technogym cloud based training platform. The solution includes a variety of training programs and tools to offer users training guidance, to monitor and track their results. Users can access training programs by scanning Skillmill QR code or by downloading the mywellness app, can monitor training parameters in real time from the on-board console. Alongside the possibility to follow the programs specifically designed, SKILLMILL is ideal for athletic training inspired classes or small group sessions.
Dual Hand Bar
Used in combination with the MULTIDRIVE resistance, the DUAL HANDLEBAR enables users of different body sizes to assume the correct position for performing high pushes and low pushes, maximising muscle activation.
Users can choose from a set of virtual training video programmes both individually or as part of a class.
High Quality Design and Materials
SKILLMILL has been designed to enable users to push their body to the limits in full safety. By using the best quality components and materials we have created a product that goes well beyond the normal usage to ensure maximum durability and reliability.
