This week we had a workout programmed with a 3 mile run. It happened to be very cold that day in the morning, only 7 degrees, so there was no way I was going to run this outside. So I decided to hop on my TrueForm Runner.
If you’ve never run on a TrueForm Runner, then you are in for a tough workout. I first used one at Arcanum Games about three years ago. Then, during the pandemic, I had the opportunity to pick one up for half off, so I did.
The premise of the curved track of a TrueForm runner is that you work more muscles of the leg and you burn more calories doing so. It also forces you to run in a better position for your body and the impact is less than running on a flat surface, which protects the joints. Plus, you supply the power; there is no motor.
Let’s just say I got my butt whipped — and bad. I had a really hard time running three miles on this machine, but I did it. And it was hard. And it was DEFINITELY worth it.
