Train like an Olympian with Technogym’s Skillmill
With Rio 2016 just around the corner it is finally to time to shed all that “bulk” you’ve been building up over the New Year and reveal the Olympic physique that we all know you’re hiding underneath. The most tried and tested method to reducing fat is of course good old-fashioned cardiovascular fitness. This isn’t ground-breaking news. One of the most popular forms of cardio is going for a run, and hey, a treadmill’s a treadmill, right? Wrong.
Fortunately for us all of us gluttons for punishments, there’s a new cardiovascular ass-kicking kid on the block and its name is the Skillmill. Created by Technogym, who have been an official supplier to six Olympic Games (meaning they know a thing or two about how the top athletes are training), the Skillmill is a completely non-motorized product that combines power, speed, and stamina to give you what they claim to be the ultimate full-body workout. Devoid of any unnecessary namby-pamby technology, the Skillmill is not only cleaner for the environment but can also give you that perfect primal form of exercise you’ve been searching for.
Despite its name, the Skillmill is accessible to even the most unskilled of you out there, with its primary focus being on incorporating the relatively simple concept of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). You know HIIT. It’s that thing your personal trainer has been telling you to do for the last six months. Even if HIIT isn’t your cup of tea, access to numerous training programs can be made by scanning the Skillmill QR code or by simply downloading the mywellness app.
What makes the Skillmill so different from your bog standard treadmill is that it uses your body’s own mass against itself, allowing you to switch from resistance-free running to an all-out sled push in a moment’s notice and instantly regret all the extra helpings of complimentary bread you’ve been eating the past year.
Even if you’re a little hesitant to do it alone, the Skillmill is also ideal for athletic training classes and small group sessions. As we all know organizing a Zumba class with the guys at work may not go down very well, but an intense session on the Skillmill has the potential for just the right amount of friendly competition.
With a starting price of AED 40,000 the Skillmill is now ready, waiting and available to beat you into shape across Technogym outlets in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
