Getting the right treadmill for your body and budget!


Cancelled Race Wasn’t Going to Stop this Star Runner From Shining! 

When most of us hop on our treadmill, we aren’t planning to set a world record. A personal best, or maybe just a butt-kicking session, yes. But an actual world record, probably not.

Except that is exactly what Zach Bitter did. Now to be clear, he didn’t just set out to break a world record. He did it!

If you’ve ever watched the Tour de France, the peloton is the big group of riders that usually sticks to the center of the pack. When they group together it allows them to conserve energy and perform better because they are working as a team.
