FUNCTIONAL

Functional training attempts to allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and injury free through exercise. For athletes, functional training is a way to improve a person’s repetitive motion, allowing them to perform at a higher level and more efficiently in their given sport.

 

ATHLETIC

Channel your inner athlete with the award-winning TECHNOGYM SKILLROW™ and SKILLMILL™ cardio pieces. Developed with the help of Olympic rowing champion, the SKILLMILL™ the first gym rowing machine capable of improving anaerobic power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular abilities in a single solution.

is the first fully connected indoor rowing equipment that trains both cardio and power at athlete’s level, thanks to its sport-specific design, exclusive technology and performance-oriented workouts. The resistance is more gradual, making the movement fluid throughout and avoids the backlash effect on the lower back.

SKILLMILL™ is the first product allowing everyday athletes to improve their Power, Speed, Stamina and Agility, and enjoy the benefits of professional sports training in a safe, engaging and effective way. A unique solution offering a huge variety of workout routines to train all the body’s energy systems and turn each member into a peak performer.

Check out this video to see for yourself.

 

STRENGTH

Functional strength training involves performing work against resistance in such a manner that the improvements in strength and stability directly enhance the performance of everyday movements. Our members will be working with dumbbells, kettlebells, slam balls, TRXs, and much more to correct imbalances and turn weaknesses to strength.

 

TEAMWORK

There is no better way to see amazing results and have fun while doing it than with a team of likeminded people. Our intimate group settings will provide you with the extra drive and motivation to push through those final reps with your teammates sweating it out right beside you.
