The bearable lightness of being

Posted by on February 6, 2014 | 0 comments

Have you ever wondered what the sensation would be to fly like Peter Pan or take high leaps like Nureyev ?  Well that is the feeling you get on an AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.  Years ago I attempted running and just didn’t enjoy it and a little voice kept whispering inside my head “you’re gonna blow your knees out darling” . . yet I secretly yearned to be a runner.  Thanks to the AlterG I can experience not only running without discomfort and the risk of injury, I can get a runner’s high in the process. Love that.

My usual treadmill time is 4.2 mph at 5 incline, today I did 8mph at a 4 incline and barely broke a sweat. Using advanced NASA technology, the AlterG provides up to 80% body weight support to reduce the impact and stress on your body.  This is a great rehab tool for injured athletes. Both of the other treadmill users today were marathoners recovering from pulled calves.

You can schedule a trial run at The Finish Line, on East 23rd St NYC  212.486.8573
