Our Engineers set out to develop a safe and comfortable running surface for people that also reduced the friction and wear associated with the conventional conveyor belt style treadmill. To do this, they started with a ball-bearing transportation system and then created an entirely new slat style running surface.
This combined system provides a running surface of 38-43 type A shore hardness, which was found by the Deutsche Sporthochschule in Cologne, Germany to be the ideal softness to eliminate the harmful shock to connective tissue while not changing proper biomechanics. Additionally, the low friction ball bearing transportation system alleviates the forces to all mechanical and electrical parts, resulting in less wear, less maintenance, fewer repairs, lower electric bills, and a longer overall treadmill life
A WOODWAY truly is the World’s finest treadmill. Woodway Treadmills are specifically requested by competitive sports teams, medical and rehabilitation facilities, and high-usage fitness facilities worldwide because of their patented design that provides a superior running surface for users and long lasting-efficiency for owners and operators.
Having just got back into outdoor running, my David Lloyd Personal Trainer decided it would be good to use the Woodway Curve as part of my strength and conditioning programme- I have ‘weak glutes’ so he wanted to use to build ‘glute’ activation, alongside general strength and fitness related specifically to running. I have walked on the Woodway Curve many times, but was apprehensive of running due to balance issues- creating a real lack of confidence. My PT gave me lots of advice prior to my first HI sprint session- which was a huge success! My confidence builds each time, as does my sprint speed, and it’s amazing how just 16 minutes of interval training has increased my calorie burn by 300 per session! My outdoor running speed has improved as a result- in just 4 weeks my quickest speed has gone from 5.19 mins per KM to 4.51mins per KM- which is a huge gain for me! I would recommend the Woodway Curve as an addition to any training program- whether for walking, running, sprinting, HIIT training- the benefits and gains are huge!?
I love the new Woodway CURVE. The big drawback to treadmill running in some people's mind is that the treadmill is doing half the work. Not with the new CURVE. My athletes love it and, we have seen great results with heart rate elevation. This is just a great piece.
The Woodway Curve Treadmill was an integral part of our training regimen for 2010 IGNITION Florida NFL Combine Class. Our combine training was a huge success and it obviously paid off at the NFL Draft. This treadmill was used amongst the Nation’s Top College Football Prospects, so not only was it beneficial to our program but also helped made a difference in the speed and agility of these athlete’s and most likely affect the rest of their lives.
