            The Positives

            • The stride is much more similar to a regular running motion than an elliptical while still providing a low impact training method.
            • I could easilly and naturally lengthen or shorten my stride throughout the run.
            • The console is intuitive, and the ledges hold my iPad/Tablet at an ideal height for watching shows while working out.
            • Natural motion that replicates running, walking & jogging
            • Optional Cross Circuit Pro Kit that combines cardio with strength training and stretching exercises.

            The Negatives

            • On your first run, it takes a few minutes to get the movement and become comfortable with the stride.
            • To get the proper motion, you need to hold the handles or grip the center handlebar, you can not run and pump your arms while staying balanced.

            The Conclusion

            The Octane Fitness ZR8 Zero Runner is really a game-changer for those 5-7x a week runners because it is very difficult keep that sort of frequency of runs without having joint and overuse injuries…but now it is possible to run 5-7x a week without join pain with the Octane ZR8 Zero Runner.

            The Octane Zero Runner has the running-motion, variable stride, and allows those people that desire to achieve the ‘runner’s high’ without the pounding impact of an outdoor or treadmill run.

            Being an experienced runner both outdoors and on the treadmill I have acquired several injuries including shin splits and runners knee. These types of injuries would prevent me from running for weeks, however, since discovering the zero runner, I experience less pounding on my knees/joints and can finally enjoy a relaxing workout without worrying about future repercussions that my exercise may cause.

            The only issue I came across with the Octane Fitness ZR8 Zero Runner is the initial trial and error of working the product. Many first time user’s will have trouble initially working into a comfortable stride, however, after a few minutes of working on the product you will be running/jogging/walking in no time!

            As I know many can relate, it is truly amazing how after years of suffering from running injuries that there is now a product out there that allows me to continue to do what I love, pain free. There really is nothing like the Octane Fitness ZR8 Zero Runner. If you love to run, walk, or jog but are restricted by the harsh pounding placed on your joints or even if you are looking to add a challenge to your running routine, the Octane ZR8 Zero Runner is perfect.
