Benefits of Impact-Free Running and Exercise
Exercise without impact has a number of benefits to the body that you simply cannot get from running outdoors or hitting a treadmill.
Reduces pressure on your joints
As a result, it helps to radically reduce the chance of injury from your higher impact training. Add miles, avoid injury.
Helps condition your body
Too much pounding on the pavement or treadmill wears your body down. Zero impact exercise allows you keep your body conditioned. A great form of active recovery, you can give your joints a rest and protect your body, while still building endurance and working the same muscle groups.
As a supplement to your higher impact exercise, low or zero impact training can help you perform more effectively and efficiently. For example, if youre an outdoor runner training for a marathon, you can supplement your outdoor training or treadmill workouts with a cardio machine such as the Zero Runner. Removing all impact, you can train more without the stress on your body but achieve better results.
Increases overall strength
Low or zero impact exercise is a great way to engage your core and condition all muscle groups. This conditioning helps to strengthen your body, rather than wear it down so you can achieve heavier training in the future.
Same results as higher impact workouts
No impact exercise will still provide improved cardiovascular ability, metabolism, muscular strength and vitality. Ideal for all abilities: Due to the lack of pressure on your bodys joints, no impact exercise can be enjoyed by all fitness abilities. Whether youre new to exercise, recovering form injury or a seasoned marathon-runner, no impact exercise is of benefit to you.
