Promotional feature: Technogym

As official supplier to six Olympic and Paralympic Games, Technogym has helped create thousands of champions in over 100 different disciplines worldwide, and has first-hand knowledge of the training methods needed to be the best. SKILLMILL™ is the newest power tool in its portfolio

INTRODUCING SKILLMILL
SKILLMILL was born from Technogym’s Olympic heritage, putting Athletic Performance Training at its heart. SKILLMILL is the first ever product capable of training all the body’s energy systems in a single solution. From sprinting to power development right through to efficient metabolic conditioning, it enables every day users to elite athletes to improve their Power, Speed, Stamina and Agility, and enjoy the benefits of professional sports training in a safe, engaging and effective way.

MULTIDRIVE TECHNOLOGY
The MULTIDRIVE technology (Patent Pending) enables users to select different levels of reactive resistance, from zero to max. In one simple motion users can switch from resistance-free running to an all-out sled push. MULTIDRIVE technology significantly benefits SKILLMILL users in two ways:

Firstly, it boosts metabolic rate. Increased oxygen consumption thanks to SKILLMILL’s resistance function results in raised energy expenditure for users when power walking with resistance, compared to walking at the same speed on a traditional treadmill or non-motorised treadmill without resistance.

Secondly, it encourages maximum muscle activation. According to electromyography studies carried out at the Sports & Rehab Engineering Lab at the University of Padova, Italy, the maximum resistance sled pushing exercise on the SKILLMILL delivers “significantly higher activation of the posterior chain, in particular glutes and hamstrings, compared to traditional treadmills.” SKILLMILL offers greater activation of the hip extensor muscles than traditional treadmills, and the same level as glute-targeted exercises.

SPORT–SPECIFIC DESIGN
SKILLMILL’s sport–specific design accommodates any athlete, no matter the discipline or level of the user.

The dual handlebar design enables users with different body sizes, shapes and goals to assume the correct position for performing highly effective exercises such as high and low pushes, maximising their muscle activation and increasing their workout variety.

Thanks to its non-motorised design, SKILLMILL is operated and controlled exclusively according to the force applied by the individual user; it goes the same pace as the athlete, putting them in total control.

BUILT TO RESIST
Designed and engineered for Athletic Performance Training SKILLMILL is built to endure the heavy usage of professional athletes, ensuring maximum durability and reliability for any facility.

Enhance your facility’s offering with SKILLMILL’s easy to implement range of training solutions.

BOOST YOUR BUSINESS WITH CLASS TRAINING
The Class Training Solution is ideal for operators of high-energy fitness studios looking for innovative performance-orientated programming. Members are organised in large groups and work together as a team, bonding over the rigor of training like professional athletes. Under the trainer’s supervision, participants perform complete functional sessions that help them become stronger, faster, leaner and more agile.

PERSONALISE WITH SMALL GROUP CIRCUIT TRAINING
The Small Group Training solution allows a higher level of personalisation and is therefore ideal for smaller groups such as PT, strength and conditioning, and rehabilitation. Trainers can deliver a varied training experience aimed at improving sport performance, power, speed, stamina and agility in a motivating environment.

MAXIMISE YOUR INVESTMENT WITH VIRTUAL TRAINING
The Virtual Training solution is ideal for operators wanting to increase their service offer and maximise SKILLMILL usage during non-supervised hours. Users can choose from a set of virtual training video programmes either individually or as part of a class and can access these by scanning the QR code on the SKILLMILL product.

TRAIN ALL THE BODY’S ENERGY SYSTEMS

SKILLMILL allows users to expand their work capacity by reinforcing the main physical skills – Power, Speed, Stamina and Agility.

POWER
Using the high resistance mode SKILLMILL users can dynamically increase their lower body power using exercises such as low, high and lateral pushes and pulls

SPEED
The ability to quickly accelerate from walking to full sprinting capacity without any adjustments allows SKILLMILL users to carry out speed work tailored to their ability

STAMINA
SKILLMILL allows users to increase both aerobic and anaerobic capacity by performing specific workouts for speed and stamina

AGILITY
Using agility drills SKILLMILL users can improve neuromuscular co-ordination and specific sports skills, perfecting ability
