5 Benefits Of A Kaesun Curved Sprint Treadmill
No complicated apps, no engine powered by space age tech or a fancy computer screen in sight. Just straight up human powered grit. That's what makes the Kaesun Curved Sprint Treadmill so interesting. It completely bucks the current trend with cardio equipment. Don't get us wrong, quality builds will set apart the good from the bad when it comes to the minimal design of sprint treadmills, but the benefits for you and your clients are plentiful.
Here's our top 5;
Form - This self powered style of treadmill means your clients will run with a more natural style on the balls of the feet. This style of running allows the user to utilise more muscle groups in comparison to the traditional heel strike used by many runners. The arc of this type of treadmill also forces more activation of the posterior chain making the glutes, hamstrings, calves to work harder.
Endurance - Some research has shown that using a sprint treadmill boosts cardiovascular output by upwards of 20%. The effort required to keep the belt moving will ultimately boost Max V02 compared to running on a normal treadmill.
Expenditure - A curved treadmill recruits more muscles during the run. As previously mentioned, we're talking about the glutes and hamstrings here. This is because of the technique required to propel or drive the running belt forward. There's also more trunk engagement involved on a curved treadmill as the user is forced to run at a more ergonomic angle. Simply put, more muscles used, more calories burned. Not to mention the 'perceived output' of your clients. Got that one client who never says they get worked hard enough? Chuck em on a Kaesun Curved Runner and you won't hear a word after!
Easy to use - Once your clients get the hang of it, it's pretty straight forward to use. No buttons or confusing tech involved.
Service life - As there are no motorised components sprint treadmills have a healthier service life and they don't use any electricity!
One more thing we love! They're limitless in terms of speed!
