Technogym launches first treadmill combining cardio and power training

Technogym, a global producer of design and technology-driven fitness equipment and the official supplier of the last six Olympic games, has announced the launch of “Skillrun.”
It is the first treadmill to combine cardio and power training in a single solution, all in order to meet the training requirements of both elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
“Skillrun sets a new benchmark in performance running and answers the needs of all runners, from sprinters to marathon runners to triathletes. Thanks to unique multi-drive technology, Skillrun offers both cardio training and resistance workouts to enhance endurance and power,” a press release said.
The company said the interactive UNITY console — the same platform and interface offered throughout the entire Technogym range — allows users to access a completely customised workout experience, engaging and motivating them through digital content, personalized training programs and data tracking.
Skillrun offers a wide range of workouts including high intensity interval training, speed resistance training and neuromuscular training as well as entertaining programs to motivate the user.
Some of its features specifically designed for athletic and performance style training include:
• Fast Track Control: Adjust speed and incline on-the-fly while exercising
• Maximum Training Space: A wide belt (55 cm) and streamlined frame
• Speed and Incline: Up to 30km/h speed and incline ranging from -3 percent to +25 percent
• 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 also allows the user to perform a variety of cardio and power workouts, such as:
• Running session: The exclusive and interactive technology known as Biofeedback tracks and monitors the main running parameters in real time, providing color-coded feedback that enables the user to track and improve their performance.
• Parachute training: Users can strengthen the resistive power and top-end speed with parachute training, which recreates the feeling of running outdoors 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 recreate the feeling of pushing a sled on grass. Resistance is high at the start and decreases at a constant rate.
