Technogym launches SKILLMILL
Fitness equipment producer Technogym has taken the treadmill concept to the next level with its new SKILLMILL, the first non-motorised product that combines power, speed, stamina and agility training.
As official supplier to five Olympic Games, and partner to many high performing teams and athletes, Technogym has first-hand experience in the training methods and systems of thousands of sports champions in over 100 different disciplines. This know-how is the basis of the company’s new Athletic Performance Training methodology, which has been developed to help create high intensity workouts that will improve sports performance.
The Multidrive technology enables users to select different levels of reactive resistance, from zero to max – i.e. resistance-free running to all-out sled push. This results in two main benefits of increased metabolic rate and maximum muscle activation (according to electromyography (EMG) studies conducted by Sports & Rehab Engineering Lab, University of Padova, Italy.
Because it is operated and controlled by the force applied by its users, SKILLMILL may well appeal to facilities looking to reduce electricity costs and carbon footprints.
