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 elliptical cross trainer facilitate this custom motion and natural stride – just like running outdoors.
8 miles outside, 8 miles inside
Instead of simply adding additional miles — get more out of every mile by supplementing your training with the Zero Runner so you
stay strong and prevent injuries.
Whether you’re an experienced marathoner or starting a running career, you will benefit from the zero impact on your body,
ultimately resulting in superior running performance.
Build your endurance, strengthen your muscles and look forward to your next long run outside by combining the best of both worlds
with the Zero Runner and outdoor running.
The Zero Runner is a great option for runners who struggle to take days off. It is ideal for active recovery days because you’re still
working on your running muscles and building endurance, with the added benefit of zero impact on your body.
Plus, undo some of the stress that running inflicts with CROSS CiRCUIT programs, such as flexibility and yoga routines.
One of the best ways to stay injury-free during your running program is to cross train. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or ultra runner,
all runners can benefit from cross training on the Zero Runner to reduce the risk of getting injured.
Cross training varies the stresses to the body so that overall conditioning improves and you strengthen your weak links.
Plus, cross training can decrease the tendency to overtrain by incorporating balance and variety, so you can fuel your running addiction
and run for the rest of your life.
Master Your Gait
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
Create Your Gait
By suspending the body, the Zero Runner frames your physique and protects your joints while you run.
No limitations, no moving belt and no fixed path. You create the movement and pace so it's uniquely yours.
It's unlike any fitness machine ever, the Zero Runner facilitates the ultimate freedom.
Master Your Gait
Want to run more efficiently and get faster? The Zero Runner features technology that displays your gait so you can monitor
your stride length and height for consistency throughout your run.
As you add miles, you are equipped to track the health of your gait and ensure that you are performing just as strong at mile 10
as you did at mile one.
Doing too much, too soon or too fast can cause an injury, sideline you and delay your training. Incorporating cross training with the
Zero Runner has never been easier with the CROSS CiRCUIT program and the SmartLink app.
CROSS CiRCUIT combines cardio intervals on the Zero Runner with strength training or stretching exercises next to the machine for
the ultimate in effectiveness and efficiency.

Zero Runner vs. Traditional Cardio Options
The video shows how the Zero Runner has a much larger range of motion compared to a traditional elliptical machine.
It also shows how the stride on the Zero Runner matches the runners stride on a treadmill.
Although treadmills have impact-absorbing surfaces, they still don't eliminate joint stress entirely, and each step results in significant
pressure on the body. Plus, your form on a treadmill is different than outside because you must adjust due to the moving belt.
The Zero Runner removes the weight on your joints so you can get your run in but without the impact. And, on the Zero Runner,
your running form is truer to what you do outside.
Stay as strong on mile 20 as you did on mile one with the Zero Runner.
