Innovations: Octane Fitness

Octane Fitness, LLC, has introduced 
the innovative Zero Runner, a unique 
cardio machine that replicates natural
 running, but without producing any
 impact. The unit’s mechanical hip and
 knee joints mimic the human biome
chanics involved in running, and its
independent pedals allow users to 
employ their natural gait, just as if
 they were outside, and provide support
 throughout. The Zero Runner also 
measures gait and analyzes each step,
 helping runners to maintain and perfect
 their form—particularly when fatigue 
begins to set in. The machine is ideal to
 supplement training for half or full marathons, for active recovery, and for cross-training. For more information, contact the company at 888-628-2634 or go to
