Aims to make ‘zero impact running’ a reality for Indian consumers, leading equipments retailer ACME Fitness systems has brought a one of its kind technically advance running system to India.
ACME Fitness, one of the leading players in Indian fitness space to bring world class fitness systems from across the globe, has introduced an exclusive Zero Runner training solution, which has been creating rave reviews in USA.
The Zero Runner equipment is manufactured by Octane, the world leader in Elliptical equipment segment.
Delivering the powerful conditioning benefits of running without stressful pounding on the joints, the Zero Runner is the only machine that replicates real running motion without any impact to the body.
Commenting on the need to introduce the product to Indian fitness space, Ramesh L Raja, Founder & Managing Director of Acme Fitness said, “We have never compromised on making quality equipment available and the ‘Zero Runner’ is yet another example of our continuing commitment. We have been able to distinguish ourselves from the others by making sure that our post sales service is of the highest order to ensure that there is no downtime on any equipment purchased by our customers, where they may have to forego even a day’s work out.”
The users control their motion throughout their run, and the Zero Runner follows the runner’s movement through the initiate, pull-through, lift and extension phases. The resulting mechanism mimics a runner’s natural gait without the foot touching the ground, thereby creating no impact at all on the joints like running in the air.
Meanwhile, Dan Codling, Sales Director, Asia Pacific, Octane Fitness said, “The innovative Zero Runner backed by extensive R&D, is the perfect training solution for runners and offers multiple benefits apart from reiterating our position as the world’s leading zero impact cardio- vascular equipment makers. We are optimistic that Indian consumers will love the Zero Runner and we expect to garner about 1 per cent of the market in the next 2 years.”
The non-motorized elliptical-looking equipment uses mechanical hip and knee joints that replicate human biomechanics in running, with independent pedals allowing runners to replicate their natural running gait, just like outside.
