Entry Description

The first zero-impact running machine, the Octane Fitness® Zero Runner® ZR8 is
unprecedented in replicating natural walking, jogging and running motion while eliminating
stressful, repetitive impact. Combining the best of a treadmill and elliptical, the ZR8 is
equipped with independent hip and knee joints so users can customize their stride – up to
58 inches – and use a full heel kick to activate the posterior leg and hip muscles, just
like they do outside.

Now exercisers of all ability levels can participate in a highly effective activity
without excessive pounding on the body. Users can monitor and adjust their form throughout
workouts with unique stride tracing technology. The exclusive CROSS CiRCUIT® program
combines cardio intervals with strength and flexibility exercises, and the SmartLink™ app
creates customized 30-60-90-day training plans. Enabling virtually anyone to run, the ZR8
is a valuable training option for exercisers, fitness walkers, aspiring joggers, aging and
injured runners.
