The Zero Runner cracked the code to replicate real running motion with zero impact. Incorporating the Zero Runner into your training schedule allows you to continue to add the miles but without the impact on your joints.
The pedals are independent so you have free motion and flexibility to create a customized running stride that feels best to your body. The ingenious hip and knee joints on the Zero Runner facilitate this custom motion and natural stride – just like running outdoors.
Four Phases of the Runner’s Gait:
- Initiate – transfer weight to the lead foot
- Pull Through – acceleration that requires a strong hamstring contraction
- Lift – knee flexion with hamstring curl for kick phase (heel to glute)
- Extension – hip flexion, then knee extension to start the next stride
