A fitness company has launched an innovative way of making running literally out of this world. Dubbed an ‘Imax for the treadmill,’ the ZONE dome by Running Unlimited takes the indoor sport to another level.
The free-standing ZONE dome features a 1.5 metre wide hemisphere which will help the runner totally immerse themselves in the experience. The screen features some of the world’s most inspiring locations as joggers run on the treadmill either from the comfort of their home or in selected health clubs. This can all be done at the touch of a button.
With running fast becoming the most popular form of exercise – there are over 5 million recreational runners in the UK alone – it may help relieve some of that boredom when pounding the treadmill. Individuals can imagine sprinting past elephants, giraffes and hyenas in Tanzania’s Serengeti, through the awesome structures of America’s Monument Valley or over rolling grasslands of Mongolia’s Himalayan foothills. Additional five-film bundles are available to purchase for £500 (plus VAT).
The ZONE dome, which is compatible with any brand of treadmill, comes complete with five destinations installed as standard, and is being launched at an introductory price of £3,940 (plus VAT).
