Smarter Training

Run smarter. Train smarter. Buy smarter.

The ZR8000 delivers all the benefits of a treadmill…but better. Totally unique on the cardio floor, the ZR8000 generates buzz by combining the best of a treadmill and an elliptical for standout workouts that replicate real running.

And for clubs, the ZR8000 offers valuable advantages: no electricity costs, quiet operation and minimal maintenance and service needs, unlike a treadmill.

Lower cost of operation

Built with a heavy-duty frame for exceptional performance, the ZR8000 offers cordless, virtually silent operation, along with significantly lower cost of ownership and fewer maintenance needs than treadmills. With no belt or motor on the ZR8000, facility owners save on electricity and costly downtime and repairs from the typical wear and tear on treadmills.

The Zero Runner eliminates the hassle of equipment maintenance and service. Fuel the cardio floor like never before – club owners and members win big.
Real running motion

Designed to accommodate everyone from experienced runners to beginning exercisers, the ZR8000 incorporates aircraft-grade aluminum legs with lightweight pedals and independent hip and knee joints to customize natural running motion based on user preference.

A broad resistance range of 15 levels creates a heavier workload for various challenges, like hill repeats, and contoured handles feature multiple hand positions for an optimal upright posture. Exercisers can start with a walk and seamlessly transition to a jog or full-out run or sprint up to a 58” stride length.

Cross training made easy

Strength and flexibility training for exercisers is simple with CROSS CiRCUIT®, which combines cardio intervals on the Zero Runner with strength and stretching exercises off the machine to address weak links, correct muscular imbalances, build overall strength, boost flexibility and improve core power.

Based on specified individual goals, the ZR8000 provides customized regimens to maximize results, and video demonstrations and coaching help ensure proper exercise execution (Smart console only). Plus, trainers and clubs can optimize cardio floor space by offering small group training on the Zero Runner with CROSS CiRCUIT.

Treadmill Comparison

Zero Runner v. Treadmill

The video shows how the stride on the Zero Runner matches the stride of the exerciser on the treadmill. The one critical difference is that the exerciser on the Zero Runner is not subject to stressful, repetitive impact.

Plus, running on a treadmill with a moving belt doesn’t match running outdoors, as exercisers do not sufficiently engage their hamstrings and glutes, and their form changes to accommodate the belt.
Smarter than a Treadmill

Treadmills subject the entire body to significant repetitive stress. And the moving belt throws the feet so that exercisers do not activate the hamstrings like they do outside, which can negatively impact performance. The Zero Runner eliminates the weight on the joints so users can walk, jog or run comfortably, without repetitive harmful impact.

Also, with stride tracing technology on the Smart console, individuals can monitor the health of their stride throughout workouts for stronger form and better results.

Smart Console

Dual Stride Trace Technology

The smart console features valuable technology that traces an exerciser’s left and right stride and displays it on the console. Users therefore can monitor and correct their imbalances so that they are more efficient both inside on the Zero Runner and outside on the road.

The dual stride trace makes it easy to see activation of the glutes and hamstrings by the height of the heel kick, so runners can focus on getting the best workout that fully engages these important muscle groups.

Exercisers today want the ability to multitask during workouts to maximize their time and productivity. With the smart console, they can choose to surf the Internet, stream web videos or choose web applications – all while enjoying an effective workout. In fact, engaging entertainment helps exercisers work out longer and more consistently – all for better results!
Asset Management

Now it’s easier than ever to maximize the performance and life of cardio equipment, thanks to Octane’s smart asset management program, provided by EcoFit Networks.

This software records valuable data from cardiovascular equipment that club owners can evaluate to optimize equipment placement, ensure equal usage, schedule timely preventive maintenance and minimize downtime with service needs.


Small group training

Small group training is now easier than ever with CROSS CiRCUIT, which lets exercisers capitalize on effective, efficient, custom regimens. CROSS CiRCUIT combines cardio intervals on the Zero Runner with strength training and flexibility exercises on the floor, with adjustable PowerBlock dumbbells stored on the machine for a compact, convenient workout system.

Octane supplies all the marketing tools and launch materials, so CROSS CiRCUIT is an easy-to-implement, turnkey solution for a club’s small group training needs. Facilities and trainers benefit from a complete cardio and strength training center and a valuable opportunity to create a new revenue stream on the cardio floor.

More Variety

The beauty of CROSS CiRCUIT is its endless options when it comes to workouts, and the ability to constantly customize, progress and vary regimens. Incorporating additional accessories, such as stability balls, BOSU Balance Trainers, medicine balls, kettlebells and resistance bands, offers change and challenge.

Plus, trainers can select different strength exercises, change the exercise order, emphasize upper body or lower body exclusively, alter the duration of cardio intervals and vary the duration and number of strength sets. No two workouts ever must be the same, and CROSS CiRCUIT delivers powerful results for exercisers of all levels with its efficient, effective sessions.
