SKILLRUN allows TOUR players to perform traditional cardiovascular training and instantly transition to lower body power training. The Biofeedback feature provides the Player with real time feedback on their running efficiency to maximize results and minimize lower body overuse injuries. Sled pushing allows for lower body power development without the need for high risk exercises while simultaneously creating core activation.
Additionally, there is an extreme incline feature allowing Players to train in a wide range of inclines. This helps with lower body strength and power development, while increasing the cardiovascular demand, and training up to a -3% decline simulating the downhill undulations they face on the course.
SKILLTOOLS are a variety of performance tools that create a wide range of training modalities for the players, for total body mobility, stability, and power development within their workouts, before a round of golf, or for recovery after a round of golf.
"Since the original fitness centers were introduced on TOUR more than 30 years ago, we have seen how fitness has advanced our players’ performance and extended their careers," said Monahan. "Today’s unveiling of a new fitness center is another landmark moment in the growth of the PGA TOUR® and our ongoing efforts to best serve our members. As our sport grows, so do the expectations and the preparation needed to compete at the world-class level we see every week."

The fitness centers are part of the Player Performance Centers that travel to 62 events between the PGA TOUR® and PGA TOUR® Champions each year. The Centers are made up of two sets of semi-trailers (four total) that navigate the mainland and Canada each year, representing a considerable investment with a goal of providing a consistent and trusted training center for the players. In addition to two fitness centers for performance and training, players have access to two wellness centers dedicated to therapy and recovery. Each unit logs more than 24,000 miles annually.
