AT IHRSA 2017 TECHNOGYM LAUNCHES SKILLROW, THE NEW SOLUTION FOR INDOOR ROWING

AT IHRSA 2017 TECHNOGYM LAUNCHES SKILLROW, THE NEW SOLUTION FOR INDOOR ROWING

TECHNOGYM, the world leading producer of design and technology-driven fitness equipment and solutions, is announcing new products, digital innovation, and technology integration at the 36th edition of IHRSA 2017 (March 8-11), Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall, Booth #1522

 

Following the great success of SKILLMILL, the first all-round product for power, agility, stamina and speed training launched during the Rio Olympic Games, TECHNOGYM launches at IHRSA 2017 the new SKILLROW, the first indoor rowing equipment capable of improving anaerobic power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular abilities in a single solution. SKILLROW represents the second product of the SKILL LINE, created for athletic performance training. This unique piece of equipment is designed to provide an unparalleled feeling that simulates the actual act of rowing on water: AQUAFEEL: SKILLROW resistance follows the natural curve of the stroke in the water, and with AQUAFEEL the resistance is gradual, making the movement fluid and avoiding the backlash effect on the lower back.

At the heart of SKILLROW is TNT – TECHNOGYM Neuromuscolar Training, a new methodology developed by TECHNOGYM’s Scientific Department that helps create high intensity workouts aimed at improving sports performance. Thanks to the MULTIDRIVE technology (patent pending), users can add a further resistance on top of air resistance, changing the equipment mode from cardiovascular training to power training by simply adjusting the resistance level. Users can also enjoy a more motivating digital experience thanks to the dedicated SKILLROW APP, which includes a variety of training programs and tools to monitor and track results, and to get real time bio-feedback on the training metrics to improve performance, and even challenge friends.

Furthering the brand’s reputation for innovation and growth, TECHNOGYM is also announcing an initiative with IBM to build, within the Technogym Mywellness cloud platform, next generation’s Watson Artificial Intelligence-driven cognitive coaching platform for health and wellness. The goal is to create a Technogym “human-like” virtual coach able to interact with people using natural language and to offer them personalized training programs based on their goals and context conditions (such as weather, agenda, health conditions, food intake) in order to enhance a healthier lifestyle. Wellness and fitness industry operators and personal trainers will also benefit from the new cognitive coaching platform, as it will allow them to continue to provide coaching to clients who may be traveling or training outside the facility.

In line with its mission to reinvent the way people access wellness, fitness and health, TECHNOGYM will be furthering its footprint in the technology sector by introducing an outstanding series of new digital products at IHRSA 2017. These developments will include, among others:

  • MYWELLNESS APP, that has been completely redesigned based on the feedback of thousands of users and operators to enhance their experience both inside and outside the club
  • the new TEAMBEATS™ solution, an innovative format for group activities and classes that combines variety, efficiency and fun
  • the new SKILLROW APP, allowing trainers to organize races of individual participants or crews, with a virtual coach always available
  • the new evolution of the GROUP CYCLE APP for UNITY SELF to manage video and music content while displaying TECHNOGYM Group Cycle equipment in real time
  • the new RACES APP for UNITY TREADMILL that allows users to challenge other runners in the facility in real time competitions, either in an Olympic arena or on the New York or Rome marathon routes.

With education for trainers and professionals, TECHNOGYM is furthering its partnership (announced in 2016) with NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) to create educational content for the fitness industry. The first of a new series of NSCA approved TECHNOGYM Product Workshops that will qualify for CEUs, will launch this month.

Finally, TECHNOGYM ARTIS continues to maintain its central role among TECHNOGYM’s offerings with a collection of 30 top of the range product for cardio, strength and functional training.  ARTIS brings together the very best in style and design, with biomechanical engineering and interactive technology. ARTIS is also the only collection of environmentally friendly wellness equipment, with unique patent-pending technology that allows people to reduce, recycle and even renew energy generated during their workout. With ARTIS, gym members and operators alike can contribute towards creating a sustainable gym and a more sustainable planet.

SKILLMILL wins the “2017 iF Design Award”

SKILLMILL wins the “2017 iF Design Award”

The new training solution by Technogym, launched at the Olympic games in Rio, adds another award to its Palmares

 TECHNOGYM SKILLMILL, has been awarded with the German prestigious design prize: “2017 iF Design Award”.

Since 1953, each year the iF International Forum Design GmbH organizes one of the world's most celebrated and valued design competitions: the iF DESIGN AWARD. Recognized as a symbol of design excellence around the world, the iF DESIGN AWARD welcomes over 5,500 submissions from 60 countries every year.

The IF award international jury selected SKILLMILL, the perfect solution to train, feel and perform like an athlete. SKILLMILL defines a completely new product category: the only non-motorized product that combines power, speed, stamina and agility training.

SKILLMILL is the ideal training solution for sports professionals and for those every day athletes who are dedicated to their fitness and improving their sporting performance; it allows users to experience the full speed-resistance spectrum by offering the possibility to switch from resistance-free running to an all-out sled push.

This experience is fundamental to Athletic Performance Training, Technogym’s complete training methodology which was created with the Wellness brand’s Olympic heritage at its heart.

This completely new and highly effective training discipline, epitomised by SKILLMILL, has been designed to improve the performance of everyday athletes and gym-goers by allowing them to:

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. The on-board console also displays vital health statistics.

SKILLMILL is capable of training all the body’s energy systems in a single solution, from sprinting to power development, for efficient metabolic conditioning and it 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.

Technogym Spotlighted on SHOWTIME Original Series “60 Minutes Sports”

Technogym Spotlighted on SHOWTIME Original Series “60 Minutes Sports”

Exclusive interview with President and Founder, Nerio Alessandri, who transformed the wellness company from garage start-up to Olympic Games

The TV show “60 Minutes Sports,” which airs on CBS's sister network, SHOWTIME, highlighted Technogym, a world leading wellness company, and its President and Founder, Nerio Alessandri, in the premiere episode of the new year.

For Technogym, to be featured on “60 Minutes Sports,” the sports journalism spin-off of the CBS Sunday night staple "60 Minutes," is a very important recognition as the company was founded in Cesena (Italy) in 1983 by Nerio Alessandri in his home garage. Today, Technogym is a world leader in the fitness, wellness, and rehabilitation fields, and has equipped more than 65,000 wellness facilities and over 200,000 private homes worldwide. Technogym currently exports 90% of its production to over 100 countries.

The success of Technogym is not only due to the quality and innovation of its products, but for also having defined a totally new vision – wellness, a profound Italian way of living, dating back to the “mens sana in corpore sano” (a healthy mind in a healthy body) principle of Ancient Rome based on regular physical exercise, a healthy diet and a positive mental approach. This new philosophy has moved the focus of fitness from looking good to feeling good.

The SHOWTIME original series tells the story of Technogym and the company’s approach to embody wellness by going above and beyond the actual product and offering additional services (personal training, interior design, education, etc.) and content creation for each individual user.

Thanks to technological innovations today, Technogym offers the “internet of things” through the Technogym Ecosystem, which consists of cardio, strength training and functional equipment connected to the mywellness cloud, the industry’s first cloud-based open platform, offering users a personalized wellness experience on Technogym products, at the gym and on mobile apps in daily activities.

Throughout the world champions train with Technogym. For years, Technogym has been   working closely with the Ferrari and McLaren Formula 1 teams. As far as European football is concerned, Technogym is the official supplier to Juventus, Inter Milan, A.C. Milan, Paris Saint Germain and Chelsea F.C. Technogym has also been the official equipment supplier to the last six editions of the Olympic Games: Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Turin 2006, Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.

The U.S. market is one of the most important for Technogym as sales have increased by 29% in 2016.
