Smarter Training

Zero-impact running

The Zero Runner cracked the code to replicate real running motion with zero impact. Incorporating the Zero Runner into your training schedule allows you to continue to add the miles but without the impact on your joints.

The pedals are independent so you have free motion and flexibility to create a customized running stride that feels best to your body. The ingenious hip and knee joints on the Zero Runner facilitate this custom motion and natural stride – just like running outdoors.
4 miles outside, 2 miles inside

Instead of simply adding additional miles — get more out of every mile by supplementing your training with the Zero Runner so you stay strong and prevent injuries.

Whether you’re an experienced marathoner or starting a running career, you will benefit from the zero impact on your body, ultimately resulting in superior running performance.

Build your endurance, strengthen your muscles and look forward to your next long run outside by combining the best of both worlds with the Zero Runner and outdoor running.
Four Phases of the Runner's Gait

Initiate - transfer weight to the lead foot

Pull Through - acceleration that requires a strong hamstring contraction

Lift - knee flexion with hamstring curl for kick phase (heel to glute)

Extension - hip flexion, then knee extension to start the next stride
Cross Training

One of the best ways to stay injury-free during your running program is to cross train. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or ultra runner, all runners can benefit from cross training on the Zero Runner to reduce the risk of getting injured.

Cross training varies the stresses to the body so that overall conditioning improves and you strengthen your weak links.

Plus, cross training can decrease the tendency to overtrain by incorporating balance and variety, so you can fuel your running addiction and run for the rest of your life. 

Treadmill Comparison

Zero Runner vs. traditional cardio options

The video shows how the Zero Runner has a much larger range of motion compared to a traditional elliptical machine.

It also shows how the stride on the Zero Runner matches the runners stride on a treadmill.
Treadmill Comparison

Although treadmills have impact-absorbing surfaces, they still don't eliminate joint stress entirely, and each step results in significant pressure on the body. Plus, your form on a treadmill is different than outside because you must adjust due to the moving belt.

The Zero Runner removes the weight on your joints so you can get your run in but without the impact. And, on the Zero Runner, your running form is truer to what you do outside.

Stay as strong on mile 20 as you did on mile one with the Zero Runner.

Hit the road running

Model Number: Zero Runner 

I sprained my ankle and was able to run on the Octane Zero Runner. When my ankle felt better I was able to go to the trail as if nothing happened - picked up my trail mileage right where I left off!!


An amazing machine

Octane's Zero Runner is an amazing machine. If you are a runner, would like to be a runner or looking to get back into running you really need to check out Octane's Zero Runner. The no impact is incredible as well as the workout you are able to get from using the Zero Runner.
The difference the Zero Runner has made for me is hard to put into words. You would need to have a brief background of my physical challenges I face as a runner. First of all let me say that i love running even though I have never run in a race or competed against anyone but myself. At the age of 12 I was in a farming accident that almost completely severed my right foot and ankle from my leg. The result is an ankle with very little movement, atrophy of all my lower leg muscles as well as basically a club foot. Add to that two joint surgeries. Knee surgery in 2012 for torn cartilage due to a horseback riding injury years earlier and in 2013 surgery for impingement syndrome in my hip. I have run on nothing but treadmills for the past 17 years in hopes that it would somehow protect my joints from further damage.
The Octane Zero Runner is a God send and an answer to my prayers. For the first time in many, many years I am able to run virtually pain free due to the fact that it is "no impact"! Also for the first time in 17 years I feel like I am finally using all my leg muscles as if I were running outdoors, again, with no impact. I get a much better overall workout than I ever did on a treadmill. The differences I can physically see and feel is amazing. I can't stress enough how everyone needs to give the Zero Runner a try! It just may be your answer!


Zero Runner Miracle Machine

Model Number: ZR7 

I have had 2 hip resurfacing surgeries and 2 total replacements in 5 years. I have struggled with pain on every machine and land causing pain in latest surgery hip. I tried the ZR7 yesterday and actually felt no pain for the first time in a year. I actually felt better post jog than before. I want one today! Thank you Octane Fitness for this. I now believe I will be able to run again.

The Zero Runner is fantastic. I had hip re-surfacing surgery 6 years ago. Any running for more than 15 min causes intense hip pain. Yesterday did a
3 hr 53 min marathon on the Zero. NO HIP PAIN!! Never thought I'd run that fast again since surgery and without pain. Boston marathon qualifying time for my age (60) is 3:55. This is a miracle machine!!


Running again

I have a bad knee that has kept me from running for years. Doctors said I'd need a knee replacement if I wanted to run again but then I tried the Zero Runner. Thanks to Zero Runner I don't need a new knee and can run again without pain.
