The Excellence of Technogym at the University of Houston



That’s what drew the University of Houston to use Technogym in its Campus Recreation and Wellness Center.

Andrew Jones, the assistant director of fitness, had experience using the company’s equipment in another fitness center. “We decided to move forward with Technogym because of the unique performance oriented capabilities associated with the SKILLMILL and SKILLRUN, such as the ability to train aerobically and anaerobically on the same machine,” said Jones.

It’s been nearly a year since they started partnering with Technogym, and unique isn’t the only word to describe the partnership – excellence and effective have come to dominate the conversation as well. Jones shares what their partnership with the company has looked like and the benefits they’ve seen.
