A great example of using the AlterG to achieve your goals when weight loss is an aim is how it was used in The Biggest Looser. Marc Boff, Director of Sports Medicine for the NBC’s The Biggest Looser, used the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill to help contestants train through injuries and achieve their weight loss goals.
“We are extremely fortunate to have the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill in our Sports Medicine Department on the set at The Biggest Loser. With its precise ability to control and manipulate weight-bearing forces, it has become one of the most utilised modalities for not only its therapeutic benefits but also for its continues weight loss results.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill was also extremely beneficial as a weight loss tool not only for our injured athletes but also for the healthy athletes. The challenge for our cast is always the reintroduction of the impact forces associated with jogging and running. The AlterG facilitated a faster adjustment to these forces than pool running, and it offered a safe and effective way to train with less stress on the body
In fact, two of our injury free contestants chose to continue running on the AlterG as part of their daily workout regime through the majority of the season.”
