STREETSTRIDER HEALTH BENEFITS

FULL BODY WORKOUT

Upper Body

Pulling and pushing the strider poles works your biceps, triceps, chest, shoulders and back muscles.

Lower Body

The lower body motion works your quadriceps, hamstrings and gluteus maximus.

Core

The lean-to-steer turning system engages your core muscles – abdominal muscles, obliques, hip flexors and lower back muscles.

Low Joint Impact

  • The StreetStrider is like running on air – you get the natural jogging motion but without pounding the pavement.
  • Ideal for everyday “easy on the joints” training and great for rehabilitation from stress or injury.

Lose weight

  • The StreetStrider burns 50% more calories than a bicycle and 13% more calories than a stationary elliptical.
  • The high caloric burn rate will help you burn fat while strengthening and toning your muscles.

Cardiovascular
Conditioning

  • The StreetStrider uses almost every large muscle group in your body, including your heart.
  • You will experience increased circulation, decreased blood pressure and improvement in overall heart health.

Weight Bearing

  • The StreetStrider is weight bearing because you are standing on your feet, unlike bicycling or swimming.
  • Helps strengthen bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.

Comfortable and Natural
Upright Posture

  • The upright body position on the StreetStrider is the same as the natural jogging position, but without the impact on your joints.
  • The upright position provides excellent visibility.

Green Transportation

  • The StreetStrider is great for commutes to and from work or running local errands – no gas needed!

Reduces Stress and
Depression

  • Going for a 30 minute Stride will relieve stress by increasing levels of “soothing” brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
  • Research suggests that breaking a sweat and burning calories can treat mild to moderate symptoms of depression just as effectively as antidepressants.

Improved Self-Esteem

  • Regular exercise of any kind is an investment into your mind, body, and soul.
  • When StreetStriding becomes a habit, it will promote your sense of self-worth and make you feel stronger and more confident.

FUN OUTDOOR EXERCISE

  • Nothing puts a damper on your health and fitness faster than a boring exercise routine. The StreetStrider allows you to break free from the boring gym and create your own workout adventure…outdoors! Studies have shown that participants who exercise outdoors feel revitalized, have increased energy levels, and feel more satisfied.
  • The StreetStrider lean-to-steer turning system is safe, stable and best of all… FUN! Carving down the street is a natural feeling people describe as ‘skiing down the street’ and ‘running on air’!
