The Woodway treadmill has replaced the traditional machine as a high-performance alternative. Crafted to work the way our body naturally moves when running outdoors.
3 benefits of running on a Woodway treadmill
1. Smaller impact on joints
Traditional treadmills can be jarring on the joints, hips and ankles, absorbing a lot of your energy. The surface of a Woodway is comprised of shock-absorbing slats to lessen the impact of hitting the surface and prevent injury. This will give you a lot more vigour to train more effectively – especially on an incline.
2. Less time on the machine
According to its makers, a Woodway treadmill torches calories faster. With a quicker heart rate, Woodways raise your need for oxygen and burn more calories than aerobic exercise.
3. Go barefoot
Our feet – the most precious body parts that allow us to walk, run, skip, jog and jump – are too often imprisoned in padded-out, usually ill-fitting footwear for years. Going barefoot enables more natural movements, but traditional treadmills are awful to run on without shoes. You end up with blisters from the rubber belts and sharp static shocks. Woodway treadmill replaces the belts with slats that welcome bare feet without the burning.
At EVO, we support the barefoot movement – our members can train without shoes if they wish. Try walking on a Woodway barefoot to begin and read our barefoot guide to get started with the movement.
