I feel the workout is very similar to running.

I still have my recumbent bike, although I have not used it in over a year. I have my ElliptiGO as well, but the Bionic Runner gives me a workout that feels closer to running, which is why I use it most of the time.

I feel the workout is very similar to running.

“I feel like I can get my heart rate up and yet, even after a long run, I do not have discomfort in my feet or legs, let alone my neck. It lets me run again without the running.”

Another advantage of the BR is that it promotes spontaneous interval and Fartlek training.

I find that I tend to push hard until I get breathless and then coast for a while and then repeat the cycle rather than just hold a simple steady pace with less overall exertion.

It is well known that interval and fartlek running improves your fitness faster than any other exercise mode. My fitness has noticeably improved as a result.

I always found that interval training while running was tedious at best. Not so on the BR. It just comes naturally.

It could revolutionize how runners train.

It’s potentially brilliant; it could revolutionize how runners train. I see it as an opportunity to add training volume without adding to the likelihood of injury.

Breakthroughs in athletic performance come from trying and doing things that, at the time, might seem strange to others.

Bionic Running is not exactly the same as running, but it’s a different, unique and fantastic way to improve my vitality and condition, physically and even mentally.

It’s a very good complement to my regular running training sessions, as I’m still strongly driven, enthusiastic and I have some hard goals set for myself.

I use the Bionic Runner now foremost to strengthen my core and because I really enjoy running on it. Discovery of Bionic Running has not only changed me physically, it has changed my mind-set, as well.

I probably cannot live without the Bionic Runner now.

Like most valuable things in life, you have to give the BR time to know you. As you get more familiar and fitter, the relationship can grow and blossom.

I probably cannot live without the BR now and I plan to buy one of the next generations as well, so I have a spare and a machine to share.

I try to do as much run training as possible without actually running.

At this point. I like to take the BR out for a 30-minute run to complete my training day. I try to do this three or four days a week.

By training seven days a week, early in the morning, it just becomes part of my routine. I do not have to think about it. It does not impact other family obligations.

He also appreciates the unique style of the Bionic Runner – “A great way to get running exercise with lots of folks turning their heads saying, ‘What was that?’” The best aspect of the Bionic Runner is that it lets Dave – who is not a competitor, mind you – continue to compete with himself …and a few other people.

“I do love to race to just see what I can do myself, let alone at the moment, since I can still run fast, love to pass the younger folks, but I know my days are numbered.”

I’ve run all my life. The BR is comfortable but intense, and for me it is better than running on a regular basis.

I don’t need as much prep time (i.e. stretching, eating or lack thereof, etc.) for a Bionic Run as opposed to a normal run.

I train on a measured 13-16 mile out and back course that I would consider moderately hilly (7-9% grades each way). I GPS and time (with heart rate) all of my workouts. I incorporate 2-3 hill repeats (7-9%, 1/2 mile bursts) in each workout.

It is the only way to get this running sensation back with no impact to my knee.

I was the third person in the world to purchase the Bionic Runner in a Kickstarter project. It is the only way to get this running sensation back with no impact to my knee. You feel the passion the owner put in it when he designed it.

On the weekend, I ran a personal record for the 10km.

I've been using the Bionic Runner mainly as a supplement in my 18 week marathon running plan.

I have left hip arthritis and a labrum tear that acts up periodically, so controlling impact is very important if I want to continue running late in life (I am 50).

I have used it to fully replace long runs at a 2-1 ratio. 50 k= 25k. I tested this by doing Bionic Runner long runs 3 weeks in a row and then doing an actual long run. My performance was exactly as it was last year on the same plan when I ran the whole four weeks, but recovery is now much faster.

In the beginning, I used it to do brick sessions as a long run supplement (8BR-4Run 8BR 4 run), which would be a 16 k run equivalent. I use it to warm up for speed workouts instead of running.

I've also used it to replace speed work outs. Instead of a 8 x 800m interval, I have done 8 x 1600m. I have also done easy runs with it. I love the freedom of having options when I'm feeling at risk of injury. On the weekend, I ran a personal record for the 10km.

The Bionic Runner seemed like it was going to be a preferable mechanical motion for me.

Once he tried the new device, David found it to be “a pleasure and a great workout” which he could incorporate into his busy city schedule. He was impressed immediately by the toughness of the Bionic Running workout.

“I was very impressed with the intense quad burning,” he remembers of those early rides. Turning things around, David says that another good thing he will do is to spread the good news about the Bionic Runner through his community.

“I am fortunate to be able to work with some of the top runners in the world,” he says. “I always like to learn from them things they incorporate to reduce the likelihood of injury. I am delighted that I can share with them my first-hand experience of the Bionic Runner.”

The Bionic Runner seemed like it was going to be a preferable mechanical motion for me.

“For the past 10 years and counting, I have had the good fortune to work with professional runners who come to New York City for road races. Sometimes you can tell from their body and the nature of injuries what they may or may not be doing to compliment their running. ”

I tend to go pretty hard on my Bionic Runner, especially on hills. I always incorporate hills.

But there are also times I just cruise and enjoy the breeze. I try to do ten to twenty milers, depending on time constraints.

When it comes to Bionic Running, “there’s no bad place to do it. But my longest ride, and one of the most pleasurable, was a 45 miler I did along the bike path from Torrance Beach to Will Rogers State Park.

I tend to go pretty hard on my Bionic Runner, especially on hills. I always incorporate hills.

“The standing position is probably my favorite aspect to it, and the visibility that affords. It’s also great to catch the breeze. Wind resistance is not only pleasurable but it enhances the workout.”

“The regular hard workouts during injury downtime made me a stronger runner.”

I was searching for a cross training tool to compliment my running. I am a huge fan of marathon runner Meb Keflezighi and knew he cross trained with an ElliptiGO. I was researching that product on Google when I stumbled upon the Bionic Runner.

I immediately joined the Bionic Runner Facebook group, read every word ever posted there, and never looked back.

The ElliptiGO didn’t compare to the Bionic Runner. After comparing both I considered the BR would provide me with a more intense workout than the ElliptiGO and was much closer to mimicking the running motion.

“The regular hard workouts during injury downtime made me a stronger runner.”

“I started a 14-week half marathon training program just before buying a BR. A week into the program, I had a slight knee injury that sidelined me for two weeks. One week after resuming training I had back-to-back calf injuries that prevented me running for five weeks.

The Bionic Runner was my savior during this dark period.”

I only got 12 runs in before the Berlin marathon. I did the rest of my training on the Bionic Runner.

I was recovering from a torn plantar fascia and subsequent stress fracture of a metatarsal. I could only manage to get 12 runs in before the Berlin marathon, and the rest of my training was done on the Bionic Runner.

I can honestly say that it got me over the line. I ran 3.51, which is 3 minutes faster than my NY time last year after having trained all year for that race. Thanks!

I run a half marathon each day during the week and I can feel the improvements coming through from using the BR on the weekends.

I am currently using the BR mainly at weekends for long runs and I’m often completing 50 miles on each day; that way I have all the benefits of running those distances without the impact.

I run a half marathon each day during the week and I can feel the improvements coming through from using the BR on the weekends. Sometimes if I’m itching to get more miles into my legs during the week I’ll go out for an hour or so on the BR.

It’s a great looking machine and one that far exceeds expectations. It’s so specific to running, and I believe it is making me a better, stronger runner.

Running Specific

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.

Avoid Injury

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.
