Have you ever asked yourself, why do we use electric treadmills? They are expensive, dangerous, power hogs that force us to run at their speed, not ours. Well, now there is an alternative to the classic power treadmill, the Pro 6 Arcadia Air Runner Non-Motorized Treadmill.
The Arcadia Air Runner Treadmill features an innovative curved deck that is completely controlled by the movements and force of the runner using it. The manually operated design helps train and promote technically-sound running posture, balance, and cadence.
The Arcadia Air Runner is also one of the only non-motorized treadmills on the market that offers adjustable resistance. With 6 levels of resistance you get an easy, high-speed run, all the way to a heavy sled power training feel.
The non-motorized design of the Arcadia Air Running requires very little maintenance and zero electrical consumption. It’s also much safer than a traditional power treadmill, stopping when you stop and going when you go.
The Pro 6 Arcadia Air Runner Treadmill is a great addition to any home gym. With no power needed you can place it anywhere. Pick one up today and feel the difference.
Muscle-powered: You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. It is likely that you will expend more calories per mile. You control the speed by putting in more effort rather than trying to keep up with a moving belt. On a curved-belt treadmill, you speed up by placing your feet further forward and slow down by striking closer to the center of the belt.
No electricity needed: You can use a manual treadmill anywhere and aren't dependent on placing the treadmill near an electrical outlet.
Safety: A non-motorized treadmill stops when you stop; you don't have to wear a safety cord to stop it if you slip and fall as you should with a motorized treadmill. This also makes it a little safer around children and pets.
High-intensity interval workouts: Athletic trainers use curved-belt manual treadmills as part of workouts that alternate high and moderate intensity. Many professional sports teams use these models for training, doing sprint intervals on the curved-belt treadmill.
