Dual Stride Trace Technology
The smart console features valuable technology that independently traces your left and right stride and displays it on the console. This allows you to monitor and correct running imbalances so that you're more efficient both inside on the Zero Runner and outside on the road.
The dual stride trace makes it easy to see activation of the glutes and hamstrings by the height of the heel kick, so runners can focus on getting the best workout that fully engages these important muscle groups.
Stay entertained and motivated throughout workouts, and boost adherence and results, with a variety of integrated entertainment options. The smart console fully equips you to select from several popular options, including Internet surfing, web video streaming and web applications. With these interactive choices, you can banish boredom and stay fueled throughout your workout.
Run smarter. Train smarter.
The ZR8000 delivers all the benefits of a treadmill…but better. The ZR8000 combines the best of a treadmill and an elliptical for standout workouts that replicate real running.
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.
Cross training made easy
Strength and flexibility training for exercisers is simple with CROSS CiRCUIT®, which combines cardio intervals on the Zero Runner with strength and stretching exercises off the machine to address weak links, correct muscular imbalances, build overall strength, boost flexibility and improve core power.
Based on specified individual goals, the ZR8000 provides customized regimens to maximize results, and video demonstrations and coaching help ensure proper exercise execution (Smart console only).
This delivers running-specific – but impact-free – training, combined with valuable strength and stretching moves that maximize stamina, help preserve form and create more balanced strength.
Why You Should Replace Your Treadmill with a Zero Runner
Treadmills don't eliminate joint stress, 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 walk, jog or run in but without the impact. And, on the Zero Runner, your form is truer to what you do outside.
Stay as strong throughout your workout with the Zero Runner.
Zero Runner vs Traditional Cardio Options
The video shows how the stride on the Zero Runner matches the runners stride on a treadmill.
Zero Runner also has a much larger range of motion compared to a traditional elliptical machine.
Be a Healthy Runner
Runners like to run. A lot. And sometimes that’s all they want to do, which can cause an injury and sideline them – resulting in bad news for race preparation. But cross training helps strengthen the entire body for greater fitness and better overall balance.
CROSS CiRCUIT makes cross training simple. It combines cardio intervals on the Zero Runner with strength training or stretching exercises next to the machine for exceptional effectiveness and efficiency. Runners still get to enjoy their runs – but now complement them with valuable strength and stretching work to address weak links, build the core and attend to the upper body. Not only is cross training good for you now, but can ultimately extend your running career.
Holistic Approach to Running
Exclusively running is a thing of the past. Now, smart athletes, including professional marathoners, attest to the power of cross training to improve their race times and recovery.
With CROSS CiRCUIT on the Zero Runner, you can help minimize overuse injuries by strengthening the entire body and incorporating different exercises, such as lateral training, plyometrics, core moves, stretching and upper-body work.
Take on your weaker links and watch your performance soar.
With CROSS CiRCUIT, the work is already done for you, so there’s no need to research different exercises and slog through developing a new routine every few weeks. The Smart console includes multiple pre-designed workouts available on demand, including Total-Body Blast, Lower-Body Blast, Upper-Body Blast and Core, so individuals can select routines based on their goals.
Even better, on-screen videos show demonstrations of and coaching for hundreds of strength exercises to help ensure proper form and execution. Users can focus on target areas and capitalize on variety and instruction.
While working on your running muscles is definitely beneficial, one advantage of CROSS CiRCUIT is that it requires you to hit other muscles as well, such as the core and upper body, that can help you power through tough races.
