As the trainers at Fit for Life know, the pressure of gravity can hinder an effective workout—especially if you're injured. Because of this, they train healthy and injured exercisers alike on the use of the AlterG Anti-Gravity treadmill, which fuses the traditional exercise machine with a zero-gravity simulation device based on NASA-patented technology. Once the machine is activated, an inflating enclosure raises and expands around the runner's lower body. Using differential-air-pressure technology, the container adjusts the air to effectively reduce the runner's weight—allowing them to run, jog, or charleston with reduced joint impact. A touch-screen console, programmable workouts, and varying weight and speed settings help runners take on a different challenge each time they climb aboard.

By combining cardio and strength training with nutritional guidance and motivation, the MAX Fitness team can help participants torch calories, burn fat, and achieve their individual health, fitness, and aesthetic goals.
