Perform Better and Recover Faster with the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.
Sometimes, gravitational pull is the best trainer. In order to succeed despite it’s mighty force, you have to lift, move, and run harder.
However, when you’re rehabilitating from injury, hitting a plateau in the middle of a sports season, or training for an endurance event, repeated impact due to the effects of gravity can slow your ability to move and completely ruin your mood, your athletic progress, or your waistline.
