A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Technogym SKILLROW
A representative from Technogym shares insight into the company’s newest piece of equipment — the Technogym SKILLROW — that launched at IHRSA 2017.
CS: What’s unique about Technogym’s newest product, the SKILLROW?
TG: The SKILLROW is the first indoor rowing equipment designed to improve anaerobic power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular abilities alongside TECHNOGYM’s state-of the-art technology in one solution. SKILLROW is the ideal machine for interactive and unique class experiences. In a group setting, the SKILLROW offers users the chance to row together in total synchronicity as a crew for a truly engaging experience. Users can receive individual feedback on their own performance or compete against each other with the real-time display of training data on a large screen.
CS: What are some of the most innovative aspects of the Technogym SKILLROW? What makes it stand out from other rowers?
TG: Two features to pay attention to include:
- AQUAFEEL: The SKILLROW has been designed to provide an unparalleled feeling that simulates the actual act of rowing on water using AQUAFEEL technology. Following the natural curve of the stroke in the water, the SKILLROW’s resistance is gradual, making the movement fluid and avoiding the backlash effect on the lower back.
- TNT – TECHNOGYM NEUROMUSCOLAR TRAINING: Technogym’s Scientific Department worked alongside professional athletes and research institutes to develop this ground-breaking methodology for improving sports performance with high intensity workouts. By stimulating both the neuromuscular and the metabolic components of performance, the SKILLROW offers safe and effective fitness routines fit for the world’s top athletes.
CS: What else should club owners know about the Technogym SKILLROW?
TG: Technogym is leading the race in a connected world by launching digital offerings specifically for the SKILLROW. Using the SKILLROW app in UNITY SELF, trainers can organize races of individual participants and even crews of participants. Alternatively, the SKILLROW app can be used to create intensity profiles and display each participant’s performance in order to create classes that are focused on providing individual feedback and personal progress.
