Our members want to train hard, but they’re also looking for quality, style and a unique experience. This is why Technogym and its incredible SKILLRUN represent the perfect fit - James Balfour, 1Rebel

he evolution of the Technogym SKILL LINE continues with the launch of its third product – SKILLRUN.

Shattering all expectations of what a treadmill can be, SKILLRUN boasts a host of innovative features, making it one of the most versatile pieces of equipment on the market and able to meet the training requirements of both elite athletes and demanding fitness enthusiasts.

Unique features
The SKILLRUNs innovative MULTIDRIVE TECHNOLOGY – a characteristic feature seen across all SKILL LINE products – enables users to perform running sessions and resistance workouts on the same piece of equipment, providing a well-rounded cardio and power training workout.
SKILLRUN is the only treadmill that incorporates resistance/power training exercises: SLED for maximum sprint and acceleration; PARACHUTE for top end speed and; RUN AGAINST RESISTANCE for lower body and core strength.

With a top end speed of 30km/h and gradient from –3 per cent up to an impressive 25 per cent, SKILLRUN offers a varied running session that can include hill sprints, rolling hills and decline work. Users can also change speed and gradient in an instant with QUICKPAD – a feature where a whole range of gradients and speeds are shown on the screen and changes can be selected at the click of a button.

“SKILLRUN gives the ability to provide total body, high intensity and varied workouts that involve both cardio and power modes," says Mauro Fabbri, Cardio and Format Product Manager at Technogym. "This provides maximum results in minimal time; ideal for all members, but especially those who are goal driven, but time poor. These types of exercise modes require high-quality, advanced technology and give members variety as well as new engaging ways to help meet and challenge their goals”.

Maximise training efficiency & improve performance
SKILLRUN provides live analysis of the user’s performance with the unique BIOFEEDBACK feature which provides colour-coded feedback on the main running parameters: running power, cadence, step length, ground contact time, propulsion and flight time.

The CADENCE TRAINING feature also allows users to find their ideal running cadence to maximise their training efficiency. Users can practice different cadences at a set speed to improve their performance.

“Following user feedback from both members and trainers, we see a growing interest and demand for biofeedback as running continues to grow in prominence and members get more educated through applications and wearable devices. SKILLRUN responds to this with the introduction of BIOFEEDBACK and CADENCE TRAINING to meet this demand for members and fitness coaches to maximise during sessions,” comments Mauro Fabbri.

Skillrun classes
For members demanding a more effective and motivating group running workout, SKILLRUN can offer a totally new class that is seamlessly integrated from class booking to results management. A dedicated professional SKILLRUN App for operators, allows users to reserve their preferred treadmill in advance of the class and follow the class run profile with instructions on the UNITY console. As an operator, the class can be prepared in advance by selecting a profile from the library or by creating their own. Music and audio is sent directly to members’ headphones giving operators the flexibility to run classes on the gym floor with no impact to other gym users.

Skillrun bootcamp
The BOOTCAMP interface combines cardio and power training, allowing users to quickly switch between gradients and speeds, as well as the three training modes: SLED, PARACHUTE and RUN. The vision is that SKILLRUN can be combined with other functional products to create a full class experience based around full movement patterns and used with TEAMBEATS Heart Rate training solution.

Successful launch at 1Rebel
Iconic boutique fitness brand, 1Rebel, utilises this function in its high intensity class, Reshape, at its new South Bank club.

The versatility of SKILLRUN allows 1Rebel instructors to deliver a varied body-sculpting experience that never gets dull. The top speed and gradient options also allow Reshape participants to challenge themselves to reach new performance levels for the first time.

Esmee Gummer, Head of Fitness at 1Rebel comments: “The SKILLRUN is a powerful piece of equipment from an instructor programming perspective – its response time means that our Rebels are sprinting within seconds of pressing a button, making the sessions even more challenging.”

“Another personal favourite feature is PARACHUTE mode – at the end of each sprint you can see how far or fast you pushed the belt, which is proving to be a great motivator for clients,” adds Esmee.

James Balfour, 1Rebel co-founder says: “Our members want to train hard, but at the same time they’re looking for quality, style and a unique experience. This is why Technogym and its incredible SKILLRUN represents the perfect fit for 1Rebel to deliver the ultimate performance-focused classes in a premium environment.”

SKILLRUN will be the product of choice in all new 1Rebel sites – up next is the launch of Bayswater, followed by Victoria. “Technogym understands our brand, needs and quite simply matches our commitment to delivering the best customer experience on the market.”
