The Skillmill is a new breed of treadmill which is non motorized, operated and controlled by the force applied exclusively by its users.

It offers a range of connectivity options to maximize performance and results in full safety.
Skillmill is fully integrated within Mywellness, the Technogym cloud based training platform.Users can access training programs by scanning Skillmill QR code or by downloading the Mywellness app, can monitor training parameters in real time from the on-board console. Alongside the possibility to follow the programs specifically designed, Skillmill is ideal for athletic training inspired classes or small group sessions.
The Multidrive technology (patent pending) enables users to select different levels of reactive resistance, from zero to max. By simply shifting gear, it’s possible to switch quickly from resistance-free running to an all-out sled push.
Used in combination with the Multidrive resistance, the dual Handlebar enables users of different body sizes to assume the correct position for performing high pushes and low pushes, maximizing muscle activation.
The Users can choose from a set of virtual training video programmes both individually or as part of a class. The machine has been designed to enable users to push their body to the limits in full safety.
