SKILLMILL™

SKILLMILL™ is a non-motorised treadmill from Technogym capable of training all the body’s energy systems in a single solution, from sprinting to power development, for efficient metabolic conditioning. Depending on what your goals are, it can be used to complete exercises around power, speed, stamina and agility.

Workout possibilities are endless thanks to the Multidrive resistance system offering different levels of reactive resistance, and the dual handlebar which lets you assume different positions like high and low pushes.

You control the SKILLMILL™ exclusively with your own force. To speed up, place your weight on your toes and move to the front of the surface. To slow down, place your weight on your heels and move to the back.

By simply shifting the Multidrive system, you can quickly switch from resistance-free running to an all-out sled push. Try a variety of positions on the dual handlebar to work different muscle groups, and use the console to track your performance using time, speed, wattage, and distance parameters.

For some exercise ideas, take a look at the workout panel on the right arm of the SKILLMILL™. You can also talk to one of our personal trainers to understand how you can use the product to achieve your personal goals.

SKILLMILL™ is now available in the following clubs: Aldersgate, Bank, Broadgate, Canary Riverside, Chiswick Riverside, Islington Angel, Kensington, Mayfair, Merchant Square, Moorgate, Northwood, Royal Berkshire, Swiss Cottage and Walbrook.

Woodway Curve

The Woodway Curve is a world first. There are no motors or buttons, it works by your own effort. You could say it runs on sweat and determination. Which makes it the closest thing to running outside, inside. 

Burn 30% more calories as you power the Curve. Simply walking on this self-powered treadmill gives you the same cardio workout as running on a conventional motorized machine. No excuses now.

Wattbike

This is the indoor bike for cyclists. Feel the road under your feet and push yourself harder than ever with the latest technology providing all the data you need to make structured training easy. 

Wattbikes measure the progression of your foot 100 times during one single pedal revolution, and the data collected offers unparalleled accuracy to help you reach your fitness goals. 

Loved by Olympic champions, endorsed by British Cycling, it’s no wonder you feel like you’re riding a proper road bike. Burn calories, build stamina and get a brilliant cardio workout, whatever the weather.
