Now available for campus recreation centers, the Zero Runner from Octane Fitness replicates walking, jogging and running – but without any stressful impact to the body. Unlike a treadmill, the new ZR7000 does not inflict repetitive pounding during workouts. The beauty of this innovative machine is that it enables virtually everyone to run – whether an aspiring runner, a cross training runner, an injured/rehabbing runner or an aging runner.
Suitable for all fitness levels, the ZR7000 uses independent hip and knee joints to mimic human biomechanics without a fixed stride, so exercisers can walk with a shorter stride or run with strides up to 58 inches, using the same muscles as running. Live stride tracing – smart console only – offers real-time information so users can maintain consistent form, and handlebars facilitate a natural arm swing.
A broad range of 15 resistance levels accommodates individual preferences, and several programs, such as interval and distance goal, add motivation. Exercisers can check intensity at any time with the digital contact heart rate sensors on the stationary handlebars.
Plus, with Octane’s exclusive CROSS CiRCUIT, the ZR7000 facilitates valuable cross training by combining intervals on the Zero Runner with strength and stretching exercises adjacent to the machine. The smart console features video demonstrations of the exercises, along with coaching tips. Fitness centers can utilize CROSS CiRCUIT for small group training, with trainers designing customized workouts.
Better than a treadmill, the ZR7000 is quiet and hassle-free. It does not need constant maintenance or service, or incur downtime, due to a simple design that does not include a belt, deck or motor. With heavy-duty construction, the Zero Runner is built to handle rigorous use and deliver superior operation.
