It is constantly in my thoughts although I take a day to rest.
It sure gets the heart rate up consistently.
It has let me get back on the road.
I've had the BR for just under a year. It's been amazing
I just did my first workout and i liked it very much.
Exhilarated! Just back from my first test ride! Wow!
I'm so thankful to have a low impact cardio option equivalent to running
It’s much more intense than cycling.
Made my strides and landings more efficient.
It improved my cadence from 188 to 193 and made me far stronger in the hips.
Absolutely love the BR, thanks for designing such a well built machine!
No back issues with the BR
..really helps with running stamina and strength
It might sound corny, but the BR has changed my life.
..the BR's impact on my dodgy knee has been transforming
The BR gives me legs of steel.
Made my strides and landings more efficient.

It is the key to injury prevention
It has help me continue to do what I love, to run.
It does replicate the ‘feel’ of running quite well, it appears to exercise most of the running muscles, and it provides an excellent hard workout.
I'm overjoyed that I can use it to get a proper non-impact lunchtime workout in 35-40 minutes

The BR work is really demanding training with a direct transfer to running
Since training with the BR my knees have improved.
Five months’ in, we’re noticing a tremendous difference in our legs. Without question, the BR is extending our mileage and improving our running economy without the overload injuries
My BR has allowed me to increase my mileage without the injury risk

An hour on the BR leaves me feeling as if I ran for an hour
The BR has totally transformed my training.
The challenging workouts not only benefit my running but my cycling as well.
Received my Bionic Runner 2 on Fathers Day 2016 ... Have been addicted to riding it every day since.
All told, it supplements my mileage in a way that lets me stay competitive while avoiding the pounding, and it has made me stronger! I love it
I followed the BR Facebook page for quite a while before I took a leap of faith I love it!
I love the bionic runner. My goal was to run again without impact on my knees and the bionic runner solved that problem
There are thousands of cross trainers claiming all sorts of things, but they all have one common flaw:
They are based on 50:50 swing/stance timing. They are neither like walking nor running.
The patented Bionic Runner mechanism has a timing and motion based precisely on running.
This sets the Bionic Runner apart from old school cross trainers and ellipticals.
It specifically recruits and stresses the same muscles as running, improving running-specific fitness and stride economy. You’ll love it.
Get Your HR Higher Faster
In a research article published in the ASCA Journal, The Bionic Runner was able to reach maximum heart rate achieved on an elliptical in half the time, making it perfect for both Fartlek and HIT.
The unique, dual-action of a non-impact landing and a closed kinetic chain combine to protect you from the two major causes of injury: impact fatigue and over extension.
This is something the best running shoe on the market can never match.
We believe that by separating running-fitness-training and running-form-training, you will arrive at race day fast, fit AND uninjured.
Fartleks are proven to increase speed. It involves alternating unstructured higher intensity bursts with lower intensity. Now you can do them when and were you like, but without the worry of overextension injuries. A simple way to do this is to pick a course with some hills. As you climb the hill your heart rate will peak. Use the other side to recover.
Long Session Cardio
Long Slow Cardio builds strength and endurance, but can often lead to fatigued muscles and tendons. Performing these types of sessions on the Bionic Runner will help protect you from injury as you tire.
Resistance training increases overall strength. But the law of specificity says that the closer it is to running, the better effect it will have on running. Now you can include resistance training anytime. Infact you can dynamically switch between resistance, Fartlek and low intensity training, simply by using the gears on the Bionic Runner.
Swap out recovery runs for Bionic Runs. Your body will love the extra rest from the repetitive impacts, and your cardio will love you for the exercise. And the variation makes training that much more fun.
Bionic Bricks are the secret to building volume with less chance of injury. Lets say you normally run 10km, but are building for a marathon. You’ve got a lot of distance to cover. So start with a distance you know you can run well, 10km, and at the end of running the 10km, jump on the BR and do a 5-10km Bionic Run.
The BR will protect you from impact fatigue and overextension when you are tired, yet you will be getting extra cardio and strength training. You will get the benefits of training adaptions that will lead to you being able to run further sooner.
Intervals are short highly intense workouts, followed by recovery periods. Performing intervals on the Bionic Runner protects you from over extension and impact related injuries that are common in interval work.
The unique 60:40 swing/stance timing of the Bionic Runner helps create core running strength. You will feel your core activated throughout a session.
Tempo runs are all about pushing your body to the max. Staying at a level just below your lactate threshold. Now you can perform Tempo runs, but without the worry of over extension injuries.
What Type Of Training Can I Do
Bonus: Free Endorphins
And if you’re an endorphin junkie, you’ll get the rush,
that feeling of euphoria after a hard-earned training run.
After all, you’ve earned it.
It works with your existing GPS and heart rate monitors
to leverage the investments you’ve already made.
