The all-new ZR8 was built with one goal in mind – performance. And performance means many things – power, speed, endurance, efficiency, versatility and recovery. With the ZR8 premium zero-impact running machine, you’re equipped to take your running program to the next level.
What makes the ZR8 so unique are the aircraft-grade aluminum legs that facilitate a faster cadence, the lightweight pedals, higher resistance range, performance grips for progression training and technology that helps correct imbalances. Unlike anything available to runners, every detail of the ZR8 is engineered for unprecedented futuristic performance, efficiency, power and speed. Are you ready to run faster?
Benefits of Zero-Impact Running
The Zero Runner is a hybrid of a treadmill and an elliptical so you get the best of both – a true running motion without the impact. It is a powerful tool that enables runners to better manage repetitive impact forces that over time that can damage the body.
Replicate real running motion by fully extending your lower leg and kicking up your heel – just like you do outside. Whether running outside or inside, one thing you get is jarring impact. Run smarter on the Zero Runner by supplementing high impact outside runs with lower impact.
By eliminating stress on the joints and muscles, the Zero Runner helps runners manage recurring issues, avoid future injuries and extend their running career.
Zero Runner v. Treadmill
Watch this video to see how the Zero Runner stride is the same as that used on a treadmill – only without the repetitive pounding and ground forces on the body.
That's why the Zero Runner is better than a treadmill. It provides you all the same benefits of a treadmill workout but the Zero Runner also provides protection for your joints. Incorporate the Zero Runner into your routine for greater efficiency, more strength and avoid injury.
Made of aircraft-grade aluminum and redesigned lightweight pedals, the ZR8 boasts light legs and a fast cadence. With the smooth, natural motion, the Zero Runner is running…only better…so you can focus on greater efficiency and enhanced performance.
And with the reinforced frame, the rock-solid ZR8 is built for maximum stability and to take a beating, over and over, to the finish line.

Be a Healthy Runner
Runners like to run. A lot. And sometimes that’s all they want to do, which can cause an injury and sideline them – resulting in bad news for race preparation. But cross training helps strengthen the entire body for greater fitness and better overall balance.
CROSS CiRCUIT makes cross training simple. It combines cardio intervals on the Zero Runner with strength training or stretching exercises next to the machine for exceptional effectiveness and efficiency. Runners still get to enjoy their runs – but now complement them with valuable strength and stretching work to address weak links, build the core and attend to the upper body. Not only is cross training good for you now, but can ultimately extend your running career.
