http://unweightedtrainingequipment.com/index-2.html Try looking into the Glidetrak, it's only $3249.00 and does the same thing as the Alter G-seriously. Good blog.

My PT has the treadmill also and when he got it there were only 2 in Arizona. Now, I'm sure there are more. It was awesome being able to run while injured.

A recent podcast on Endurance Planet with Dathan Ritzenheim quoted him saying "I bought one for my house...now that they are about $30k, it's something a two elite household can justify".

Sounds like it's quite a bit cheaper these days.

$75K? For that price I would want cable tv and a foldout mattress since I would need somewhere to live after having sold my house to afford one.

Unfortunately many people have not been told that running on a treadmill can actually interfere with the bodies ability to run outside. This article explains how:

I heard about this machine a while ago when an recovering basketball player was using this to get back into shape. I guess it takes all pressure off and makes you lighter? I'm not really sure, but it looks really fun to run in..



wow. I want one! $75k ouch.

2008-01-01T22:08:00.000-08:00

I don't know about the energy usage (good question!), but I do know they cost as I just inquired about it myself.

$75,000

If anyone has that much money they don't know what else to do with, I'm extraordinarily interested in getting one of these. ;)

We have just purchased an Alter G G-Trainer for our Phoenix facility. Any athletes in the area are welcome to come try it out.

2007-10-10T09:50:00.000-07:00

Come see what elite runners have known for the past year and a half, the G-Trainer (from Alter-G) anti-gravity treadmill will be exhibited at the New York Athletic Club from 10-23 through the NY marathon/Olympic Trials Marathon to 11/16.

If you were following the recent world championships in Osaka, you saw Alberto Salazar’s runners (under the Nike Oregon project) do amazingly well. Kara Goucher won Bronze in the women’s 10K. Adam Goucher, Galen Rupp, Dathan Ritzenhein and Shalane Flanagan all qualified for the finals. And all use the G-trainer.

(learn more at www.alter-g.com)

Alberto Salazar will be doing a seminar on the G-Trainer on Friday the 2nd with a presentation on how he's used and incorporated the G-Trainer as part of his training/condition and injury prevention routines. Nike runners and elite/professional runners will be training in the G-Trainer live. So can you.

Watch for press releases, e-mails and blog entries for more details. Come see, and try the future of training and conditioning. The G-Trainer, from Alter-G.

2007-09-04T11:21:00.000-07:00

The G-Trainer is quickly becoming "the" training tool. Nike Oregon Project runners, under Alberto's tutelage, have really done well.

Kara Goucher won bronze in the 10K at the 2007 Osaka world championships, and Dathan Ritzenheim, Galen Rupp, Shalane Flanagan and Adam Goucher all qualified for the finals and showed well (top 10 all). We're pleased to be a part of their training programs.

Thanks for the link, Lloyd. The more who know about Alter-G, the sooner we can get one!

Great post, Scott. I want to share this one with my peeps, so I linked it to my site.

An aside: I grew up in Hayward and Garin Park was practically my backyard. Every time I return to visit, I make sure to get a run up in those hills.

Thanks!

2006-08-18T11:03:00.000-07:00

Yes, they are that comfortable. I was pretty surprised myself.

They are compression shorts; the thin neopreene shorts often used by pro NFL linebackers. The felt like cycling shorts when I first put them on. I zipped in around the waist, and it supported uniformly across the shorts.

One of the founders told me they just tried to break the 3:43 mile record by setting their weight at 127 lbs (the weight of El Guerrouj when he broke the record). He came up a few hundred meters short, but I thought it was a great way to test the system!

Something about this sounds funny to me...

I am a runner and an aerospace/mechanical engineer...

You aren't being supported by buoyancy you are being lifted by the top of pressure vessel... Are you serious when you say that the shorts are comfortable when they are supporting more than 40 lbs of your body weight?
