Full Body Workout
Pulling and pushing the strider poles works your biceps, triceps, chest, shoulders and back muscles.
The lower body motion works your quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes.
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.
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.
The StreetStrider uses almost every large muscle group in your body, including your heart. You can experience increased circulation, decreased blood pressure and improvement in overall heart health.
The StreetStrider strengthens a long list of muscles throughout your body, including muscles in your legs, midsection, back, chest, shoulders and arms. To increase the strength-building benefit of your workout, simply change gears which changes the resistance level. The StreetStrider provides a full body workout, simultaneously working the upper, lower body and core in a controlled and safe manner, leading to more muscle gains in less time.
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.
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 is comfortable and provides excellent visibility.
Have Fun 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! The outdoor elliptical motion is described as ‘skiing down the street’ and ‘running on air’!
The StreetStrider is great for commutes to and from work or running local errands – no gas needed!
Relieves Stress & Anxiety
Using the StreetStrider can 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.
