The premiere elite fitness running machine packing an intense workout into a small package.
The Name Says it All
Like running on air, but with a powerful amount of punch. This treadmill is like none you have ever known, burning more calories than the average motorized version and built with intense training in mind.
Tough on You, Easy on the Environment
A remarkable feature, the AirRunner runs on your energy, with zero electrical consumption and a low carbon footprint. You’ll be amazed at what a hardcore workout can come from the power of your own two feet. The AirRunner is also the lightest treadmill available with a 33” width.
Optimal for Interval Training
Because the Assault team knows the effectiveness of interval training, our treadmill was designed with HIIT in mind. Burning more calories than a motorized treadmill, users can change speeds at will. In addition, this badboy has no maximum speed, so feel free to push it as hard as possible.
The AirRunner is well-appointed to kick your a** for years, built with a steel frame and handrails, corrosion resistant hardware, and a slat belt running surface that lasts up to 150,000 miles. That’s right – that’s not a typo: 150,000. There’s no need for you to adjust the belt tension or replace the deck. This treadmill is the easiest to maintain that you’ll find anywhere.
It's a crazy good workout
Just wanting to send this out, and let you know that the assault runner we got is awesome. It's a crazy good workout. People think they are in shape until they get on this thing, and they cannot last, it's awesome!!!
First try - awesome
First, this thing is sturdy/solid, built like a brick. It also means if you have an unconventional path to where you want it, you'll need a couple of people to help. Otherwise, it rolls nicely on two wheels like cart.
Paired easily with my heart monitor (Scotsche 24). Also paired easily with the Zwift smart app (run mode).
It took me a few tries to get use to it, but once I figured it out it was great. I really enjoyed the "trial" runs. Going to be great anytime I don't feel like running outdoors or need to squeeze a quick run in..
As a teenager I used to enjoy running but it hasn't been part of my fitness routine for a long time. I've developed bad posture and a rather duck footed walk. Now a couple weeks into running on the air runner I have noticed my overall posture is better and my duck footed situation has also disappeared. This treadmill is so challenging and fun to run on! I had thought that the manual part would mean the belt would be difficult to spin.. this was not the case. Learning to control your speed and not shoot off the end is really a great feeling and boy do you feel a run on this thing in so many muscle groups! Any treadmill that can do all these things and even leave your lats sore is definitely worth the purchase!
I'm a marathoner, I don't do cross fit (and really thought this was reserved for them, not me), so I was nervous about putting this much money towards the Air Runner.
-This is the smoothest treadmill I have ever run on, no belt slipping, no motor delay--really mimics outdoor running.
-I was more tired the first few times I used it (likely because I was up too far on the curve). Now, however, after getting used to it, I could run on this thing for hours. Once you find the right placement on the curve you can really hit and stay at your pace. Also, unlike other treadmills, the Air Runner requires some mental awareness (need to be aware of your placement on the curve)--which I love and makes it feel less like a treadmill and more like running outside.
-I've done a few tempo runs and love that you can instantly get up to your pace and hit recovery paces too with no waiting for the belt to catch up.
-This thing is hefty (256 lbs) so make sure you know some to help you move it up/down stairs. Pretty easy to wheel around the room, but going up/down would require Magnus McMuscule.
-My only real rub is that the distance/pace calculations seem to be off. Not a huge deal if you run with a GPS cadence watch like I do, but something to be aware of, especially for the cost.
-I do miss the option for an incline, but I figure I'm working harder on this than most treadmills so no biggie so far.
Give it a little time.
We got 2 of them at the Pueblo Athletic Club. Initially they were not liked as they were placed next to the very nice motorized treadmills. Personally I found it uncomfortable. It reminded me of my annual spring adjustment after a winter of powered treadmills. After 3 - 4 months of winter training I have to retrain form and composer when I hit the streets. After a week of painful running on the AirRunner I recorded my gate and discovered several issues. Foot strike, stride and posture had developed undisciplined movements. Not one to throw in the towel, I fought through it broke it down to the basics. Quit running until I could get it right. All it took was three 30 min walking sessions before I felt comfortable. Once I pulled in my hips, straightened my back a natural foot strike returned and the pain diminished. Now I am feeling it again soc cool . I can push HIT and feel good, really good in a 60 - 90 min endurance run. It feels like I am running on the road! Several members have asked me why I look like I am having so much fun. I reply because I am feeling it this AirAssault tread-meal is just too cool. You just have work with it just a bit. I think the AirAssault was design with a purpose that works. Just give it a little time.

I read many online reviews before buying this one. Quick free shipping Is great as well. It’s pretty intuitive but does take some time to get used to.
