Full body exercise, low impact, safe, and green
Accelerate much faster than motorized treadmill
You are the motor, and much better than the electric motor! The acceleration speed of BodyEnergy is ten times that of an electric treadmill, and it will stop immediately when you stop.
The major problem with motorized treadmills is the powerful motors - typically between 2-5 HP. That amount of power on a treadmill hurts your knees and is unsafe for users regardless of exercise level. You can't stop the electric treadmill in the living room from harming your child.
BodyEnergy treadmills can provide comprehensive fitness training for all ages. BodyEnergy burns twice as many calories as electric treadmills at the same speed, and can be fully controlled and driven by the user's arms and legs, thus replacing traditional electric motors. You can perform a variety of exercises, from easy walking to high-intensity exercise. It can easily promote ordinary people's HIIT exercise (High Intensity Interval Training), but it can also accommodate beginners and the elderly to improve their strength and cardio exercise. For advanced training, running at speeds higher than 6 mph can bring you outstanding accomplishments. It is completely self-driven; when you stop, the machine also stops. The target audience of BodyEnergy treadmills is 55 million treadmill users, 32 million elliptical users, and 65 million senior citizens in the United States, much more people all over the world. In addition, users of bodyEnergy treadmills no longer need to worry about user and child safety issues.
Every few decades there seems to be a breakthrough in fitness equipment that substantially changes the way people workout. In the past, there were stair climbers, elliptical machines, exercise bikes, cross trainers, cam weight machines, treadmills, et al. The common goal was for the user to get the maximum fitness results in the shortest amount of time.
As the industry progressed through decades of new fitness products, we saw the introduction of moving arms on upright bikes as well as ellipticals, thus inventing the “cross-trainer.” The goal was to provide an upper- as well as lower-body challenge for a complete workout. The engagement of the upper-body muscles also increased calorie expenditure compared to using just the lower body. Despite these innovations and modifications of tried-and-true devices, the treadmill is still the predominant weapon of choice in homes and health clubs throughout the world. No one has successfully integrated arms into a treadmill … until now. Following six years of development, the BodyEnergy treadmill emerged with a patented arm-drive system to replace the electric motor and integrated resistance arms to work in consort with the running surface.
Motorized treadmills are driven by strong electric motors ranging from 2 to 5 HP. While an average person’s sustainable mechanical output power is about 0.1 HP. Therefore, to efficiently drive a treadmill without the help of gravity force is a very big challenge. For last several decades, people around world had tried to invent a practicable hand-driven treadmill, but all failed because of the insurmountable difficulties. BoldEnergy’s treadmill patented drive mechanism solves the fundamental problems and enables it to run smoothly with limited human power. Previous human-powered treadmills are all based on gravity force to drive the tread belt (use tilt to slide down, including the curved treadmill with slat belt sliding on two rows of bearings). The gravity-force based treadmills have been on the market for more than 50 years. Since these types of machines can’t meet most people’s needs, the user’s numbers are still very small. BodyEnergy’s efficient and controllable hand-drive system will make this human-powered treadmill more popular than motorized treadmills in the near future. The patented drive system also allows the user to drive the treadmill with their hands as well as by feet.
Using technology that is now more than 50-years-old, the classic motorized treadmill, between 2018 and 2020, contributed to 17 fatalities, one of which involved a five-year old child. In 2019, U.S. emergency departments treated an estimated 22,500 treadmill-related injuries, about 2,000 of which were to children under eight years of age. In 2014, motorized treadmill injuries sent over 24,000 people to the emergency room, accounting for 40% of all indoor fitness equipment injuries in the United States that year. Over the years, the call has grown from the medical community, health and fitness professionals, and the public at-large for a change, but the government and the fitness industry has been slow to respond. Unless families stop using treadmills equipped with powerful motors, the treadmill related tragedies may not be avoided.
BodyEnergy was one of the talked-about new product at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), earning the Runner’s World Editors’ Choice Award for ‘best running tech product.’
Driven fully by the power of your own body’s energy, the BodyEnergy treadmill uses your hands to replace the electrical motor. Activating muscular movement in both the arms and legs simultaneously on the BodyEnergy produces a higher intensity workout for maximum calorie and fat burn.
No electric motor is needed to drive the belt. With the use of the body instead of a motor, the BodyEnergy treadmill prevents injury during workouts and has a low impact on your joints over time. BodyEnergy is truly passionate about keeping you safe and healthy for years to come.
BodyEnergy's first debut at the CES tradeshow in 2020 drove enthusiasm amongst all users, and received the Runner's Magazine Editor's Choice Award during the show. BodyEnergy is proud to have developed a treadmill that has long-term health benefits, while still being fun to use for all ages!
