This year’s Columbine Classic will feature the opportunity to try out Octane Fitness’ new Zero Runner courtesy of HeatlthStyles Exercise Equipment, the revolutionary machine now used by professional athletes like Olympic distance runner Kara Goucher.
Brief ongoing clinics at HealthStyles’ booth will cover Zero Runner basics as well as novel training techniques to help improve running performance like better mechanics, turnover speed, and proper muscle recruitment, all without impact! All visitors will have a chance to try the machine.
Featured in the Wall Street Journal, Runner’s World, Shape, Fitness, and countless other media, the Octane Fitness Zero Runner is the first zero-impact running machine allowing runners to add strength and conditioning without impact and accompanying injury.
Goucher – a Boulder resident and a mom – was quick to add the Zero Runner to her training program. Octane launched the product, which is sold through HealthStyles Exercise Equipment in Colorado, in summer 2014.
“The Zero Runner is an amazing tool for runners,” Goucher said.
“Whether you are coming back from an injury, or wanting to add cardiovascular fitness without pounding your legs, it is the perfect workout to compliment running.
“I have tried endless different types of exercise equipment over the years, but the Zero Runner is the closest to actual running that I have ever experienced.
“It is now a part of my routine and it is helping me get stronger and faster without adding unnecessary stress to my legs.”
Goucher was the 10,000 meters bronze medalist at the 2007 World Championships in Athletics. She represented the United States at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics. She made her marathon debut in 2008 and finished third at the Boston Marathon. Collegiately, Goucher competed for the University of Colorado and was a three-time NCAA (twice in track and once in cross country) champion.
