The Run attack, curved treadmill is designed for natural human movement. Its modern concave-shape makes it very similar to running outside as it allows you to run with a natural style. The treadmill is powered solely by your legs, not electricity. It has no top speed and with its curved, slatted running surface, runners create a momentum to turn the treadmill belt by using the balls of their feet.
The Run Attack allows you to increase your power, speed, endurance and agility by using High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). This training methodology alternates short but intense phases of anaerobic exercise with a low-intensity recovery.
The Run Attack offers more core engagement due to the need to run at an ergonomically correct angle. This forces people to maintain a correct posture otherwise they will feel off-balance which will affect their run. The rubber surface of a curved treadmill helps absorb the impact on their joints and connective tissue, preventing injuries often associated with running on hard surfaces.
