Technogym's Centre of Excellence at Loughborough University

Technogym has been awarded a five year contract to supply its state of the art equipment and digital software to the world’s number one sporting university, Loughborough.
Creating a new Centre of Excellence within the already sector-leading Powerbase strength and conditioning gym, Technogym’s first step was to refurbish the facility. Powerbase, one of the country’s largest strength and conditioning gyms, provides an environment where training, recovery and rehabilitation can all be accessed under one roof. Everyday Olympians, Paralympians and Loughborough University’s elite squads from a multitude of sports train in the facility.

Supported by Loughborough’s team of strength and conditioning coaches there are several current world record holders training as part of the Loughborough setup, with Powerbase also home to British Weightlifting. The gym features over 100 Technogym stations including 11 Olympic Power Racks and Pure Strength plate-loaded equipment. There is also a dedicated cardio mezzanine floor overlooking the strength area, housing Technogym’s latest innovation, SKILLRUN – the first treadmill to combine cardio and power training in a single solution. The area is also equipped with SKILLMILL - the only non-motorised product that combines power, speed, stamina and agility training - and EXCITE Treadmills, Varios and Bikes. All SKILL LINE and EXCITE products are connected to mywellness, the first comprehensive platform in the industry connecting fitness equipment, apps and wearable devices, allowing people to seamlessly manage their personal lifestyle anywhere and anytime.
