Run smarter. Train smarter.
Buy smarter. The ZR8000 delivers all the benefits of a treadmill…but better. Totally unique on the cardio floor, the ZR8000 generates buzz by combining the best of a treadmill and an elliptical for standout workouts that replicate real running. And for clubs, the ZR8000 offers valuable advantages: no electricity costs, quiet operation and minimal maintenance and service needs, unlike a treadmill.
Lower cost of operation
Built with a heavy-duty frame for exceptional performance, the ZR8000 offers cordless, virtually silent operation, along with significantly lower cost of ownership and fewer maintenance needs than treadmills. With no belt or motor on the ZR8000, facility owners save on electricity and costly downtime and repairs from the typical wear and tear on treadmills. The Zero Runner eliminates the hassle of equipment maintenance and service. Fuel the cardio floor like never before – club owners and members win big.
Real running motion
Designed to accommodate everyone from experienced runners to beginning exercisers, the ZR8000 incorporates aircraft-grade aluminum legs with lightweight pedals and independent hip and knee joints to customize natural running motion based on user preference. A broad resistance range of 15 levels creates a heavier workload for various challenges, like hill repeats, and contoured handles feature multiple hand positions for an optimal upright posture. Exercisers can start with a walk and seamlessly transition to a jog or full-out run or sprint up to a 58” stride length.
Smarter than a Treadmill
Treadmills subject the entire body to significant repetitive stress. And the moving belt throws the feet so that exercisers do not activate the hamstrings like they do outside, which can negatively impact performance. The Zero Runner eliminates the weight on the joints so users can walk, jog or run comfortably, without repetitive harmful impact. Also, with stride tracing technology on the Smart console, individuals can monitor the health of their stride throughout workouts for stronger form and better results.
Zero Runner v.
Treadmill The video shows how the stride on the Zero Runner matches the stride of the exerciser on the treadmill. The one critical difference is that the exerciser on the Zero Runner is not subject to stressful, repetitive impact. Plus, running on a treadmill with a moving belt doesn’t match running outdoors, as exercisers do not sufficiently engage their hamstrings and glutes, and their form changes to accommodate the belt.
