State-of-the-Art Equipment

High-Speed Unweighted Treadmills

Unweighted treadmill training is a method of supporting the body to facilitate walking and/or running patterns in the forward, backward and lateral directions while remaining in a full functional upright position. Unweighted high speed treadmill training improves the neuromuscular system and speed of athletes. It is also an effective solution for clients with conditions that affect their knees, ankles and back by improving gait, balance and posture.


Whole body vibration has many benefits when used in conjunction with well-developed fitness or training program. Vibration can enhance muscle fiber firing patterns, core strength, flexibility, stability and range of motion, which can lead to an increase in metabolism and blood circulation. Additionally, vibration is extremely effective in injury prevention.

Incline Strider Treadmills

Voted as one of the best pieces of exercise equipment in Pittsburgh’s Best Magazine, this treadmill is unique to the area and can be found at FASTER. These self-powered treadmills build athlete’s strength and conditioning through resistance training. The treadmill’s resistance can be adjusted depending on training desires allowing users to build proper running form, forward speed, lateral power, cardiovascular conditioning and ultimately reach peak performance.
