Skillathletic training: three factors to consider when planning your training

The world of fitness is, although with many facets, basically divided into 3 large sectors:

  • Athletes: they train to improve performance in relation to their sport. They certainly achieve results in terms of sports performance by sacrificing what is the recreational side of the training or at least more engaging.
  • Cross-trainers: people who train with the intent to work and sweat as much as possible. They practice multiple disciplines but often their technique of execution leaves something to be desired. It is in this group that there is the greatest number of injuries that can lead to a subsequent removal and abandonment of physical activity.

  • The Wellness/Fitness Addicts: people who train exclusively to improve their state of psychophysical well-being are very careful to the proper execution of the technical gesture that often goes to the detriment of the intensity and volume of training. You create engaging and safe workouts that, however, do not always lead to the desired results.

Until now, such different types of people were only connected by the desire to train, but because of the great difference in objectives, they could never share a training session. Until today.

Skillathletic training - inspired by Champions

Skillathletic training is a completely new training methodology, with the aim of developing athletic skills (called skills) of its participants, improving their sports and athletic performance. This training, which draws deep inspiration from the sporting tradition, is not only reserved for elite athletes but allows all those who enjoy competition and challenge to increase their efficiency and performance in every sport.

Skillathletic, with the variety of exercises, equipment, and training techniques used, will ensure that each participant comes out of the session tired, satisfied and motivated to always give something more session after session.

The trainer explains the exercises before the session
The strength of Skillathletic is based on competition and the desire to belong to a community: SKILLATHLETIC classes often involve the formation of groups, with the aim of motivating, socializing and bringing out the team spirit in each of the participants. All this is helped by precise monitoring systems for tracking biometric data, in a state-of-the-art and highly technological environment, designed with the precise aim of maximizing efficiency during each training session.

The Skillathletic training exercises have a functional background, based on the 7 fundamental movements. The balance of movements, which in any session of SKILLATHLETIC involve all the muscle chains, avoids excessive strain on only one muscle group, helping to reduce and sometimes correct various postural issues.

The simplicity of the seven fundamental movements allows training within all four Skillathletic pillars to be progressed or regressed to the needs of the individual: POWER, AGILITY, SPEED, STAMINA (P.A.S.S.). Following these four pillars, each person can choose whether to train and develop the ability that best suits him/ her, or whether to alternate the various workouts to adequately increase the potential that each of the 4 pillars is able to offer.

Skillathletic, the workout designed for efficiency and technique

Why is it that training often doesn't achieve the desired results? At first, especially if a person is new to exercise, anything they do leads to improvement. Subsequently, the improvements will always be lower, until a plateau of performance is reached, in which the training maintains the existing level of fitness. This is due to three training errors:

  • Poorly structured programming of the workouts
  • Inappropriate technical skill level required by the sessions
  • Failure to meet work thresholds

1. Poorly structured programming of the workouts

It is not easy to see workouts, especially outside the sport, based on a long schedule over time that considers periods of higher and lower intensity and volume of load. To overcome this, Skillathletic classes consist of structured training programs, which consider the biometric values of the user and can be varied according to the needs of the class by the trainer.

2. Inappropriate technical skill level required by the Skillathletic sessions

Planning a lesson for a mixed class can be complicated even for the most experienced trainer. The use of progressions and regressions of the various exercises that exist in SKILLATHLETIC makes the deployment of a training session suitable for all abilities. It will no longer be necessary to propose different sessions for advanced or beginner participants, everyone can do the same training, develop the same skills, train the same energy systems, simply following the principles that govern the difficulty of each exercise. With Skillathletic is no longer necessary to propose advanced training or for beginners, everyone can perform the same training, develop the same skills, train the same energy systems, simply following the principles that govern the difficulty of each exercise.

The word "difficulty" has not been used at random, because what you often see is varying the intensity of exercises, acting in this way always and only on the same parameter of progression and regression (the overload or volume). To vary the difficulty of an exercise means to create new motor awareness making people more skillful, in a way relevant to their sport and daily life.

3. Failure to meet work thresholds

Often an individual will enter the gym and focus on performing the prescribed exercises as correctly as possible. All this can be fine, but it is not always enough: they risk working at a training intensity that is too high or too low compared to their individual capacity.
Often, in gyms and classes, the trainer has no way of monitoring the level at which each of the participants in the training. This is where Technogym decided to supply Skillathletic with a dedicated cardiac telemetry platform, able to show real-time information about the heart rate response to training. In this way, trainers and participants can immediately see if the intensity of the training is in line with that plan and adjust their effort to achieve the required results.
Skillathletic uses other innovative equipment like SKILLMILL, SKILLROW, and SKILLBIKE, together with the various Skilltools (mobility stick, slam ball, foam rollers, etc.). With each product, it is possible to train and develop the various energy systems with efficiency and safety.

In conclusion, Skillathletic is a unique training methodology that develops the body in a fun, safe and effective way, it will show everyone the true meaning of the word functional and will finally unite the various types of people who like to train. Training can and must also be intelligent, not just tiring.
