If you’re looking for an innovative way to enhance your training, improve your performance, or assist in your rehabilitation and recovery routine, a Boost microgravity treadmill might be just what you need. Using advanced technology to simulate a low-gravity environment, it can help you exercise with reduced impact on your joints and muscles. If you’re new to microgravity treadmills, on the fence about buying in, or simply just not familiar with the technology, we’ve outlined how you can make the investment worth it. 

The Benefits

One of the main advantages of a microgravity treadmill is that it can help you exercise more comfortably and with less strain on your body. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or simply looking for a way to minimize joint pain, the reduced impact on your body can make a significant difference in your training routine.

Another benefit of a zero gravity treadmill is that it can help you enhance performance, including speed, power and endurance. By reducing the impact on your body, you can exercise for longer periods of time and at higher intensities, which can help translate to increased performance. This can be especially useful for athletes who want to maintain their fitness levels while recovering from an injury or even those who want to supplement their current training routine with things like overspeed training.

In addition, microgravity treadmills can be an effective tool for weight loss and management. This can be especially beneficial for individuals carrying excess weight that may have difficulty with traditional exercise. Additionally, it can be helpful for older adults or those with chronic conditions such as arthritis who want to stay active while reducing pain and without putting too much stress on their joints.

Why it’s worth it


If you’re a coach or athletic trainer, you can incorporate zero gravity training into your athletes’ training programs to…

  • Boost individual and team performance
  • Reduce injury rates

Injuries not only cost your team in terms of performance and success potential, but also have a significant financial impact. However, by keeping your athletes healthy and returning to sport faster, you can help to reduce those injury costs for both individual athletes and your institution while also enhancing your team’s overall success. An added bonus is that by helping reducing burnout, it has the ability to promote a general improvement in mental health and overall outlook for the athlete which can also have a significant impact on performance.

Physical therapy & rehabilitation

If you’re a physical therapist, you can incorporate the Boost into your patients’ rehabilitation programs to improve patient outcomes while also increasing revenue for your practice. It can be effective for really anyone who comes into your clinic, from individuals with orthopedic injuries to neurological conditions to chronic conditions, and even older adults (read more on how here). By helping to reduce recovery times it not only can save your patients money but also increase your patient turnover as well. 

Although the Boost Microgravity Treadmill™ is a financial investment, we believe it’s important to also recognize the positive effects it can have for you as a user, trainer, or practitioner and the possibilities it can open up that ultimately make it a worthy investment.
