Moreover, users can a more motivating experience by connecting with the dedicated SKILLROW App (available on smartphones). By placing the smartphone in the integrated phone holder, the app offers four different ways to train:
Set a pace boat target or compete against a friend’s personal best in different challenges.
Real-time feedback on performance metrics, helping to improve stroke force and length.
Row like a champion with guidance from top coaches including Alexia Clark, Kenny Santucci, Scott Durant and Omri Rachmut.
A library of programmes from goal-oriented (time, distance, pace), to interval training and Technogym Neuromuscular Training (TNT) programmes developed by exercise professionals.
Beginners can access a library of videos from top coaches to assist them with the correct rowing machine technique, whilst data-obsessed gym-goers will enjoy a detailed results summary through the app at the end of each session, enabling better analysis and understanding of their performance.
Facilities can use a large screen to run competitive team races, individual performance classes or intensity-based classes in a dedicated room or studio, or simply on the gym floor. This exciting and engaging experience motivates participants, whether they are driven by their individual performance feedback or competing with others thanks to the real time display of training data on a large screen.
Competitive races can be set up between individuals or team boats in a truly immersive 3D environment to create a huge amount of energy in a class. For team-based races, participants must attempt to row in total synchronicity as a real crew, or they will slow down.
For individual performance classes – designed to appeal to participants looking to improve or simply track their own performance – the trainer sets a focus for the class, such as SPM, power, heart rate, or calories. Individuals’ results display in real-time, providing motivation for participants.
Intensity-based classes are based around a predefined class profile set by the trainer. After the class, participants can look at their compliance index as part of their performance data in the mywellness app to compare their performance with the expected class intensity. This is a really powerful way for participants to measure progress over time.
