Why LightSpeed is Good for Beginners
Want to see what LightSpeed can do for you? Check out our six case studies of real people who have gotten back to running with LightSpeed.
Have you ever promised yourself you’d get back into running again, but then had a hard time keeping it up?
“With this system it allows you to get that feeling of quickness back. It’s no fun just slamming along.”
Whether you used to run in your college days but haven’t put on the old shoes in awhile, or whether you’ve never really gotten into running, starting out can be less than pleasant. There’s that sluggish feeling, where you’re trying hard but still feel like you’re barely moving. You’re sore in strange places the next day—your knees, your back, your feet. But perhaps worst of all is the pounding. With every step you take, you slam down with a force of up to five times your body weight on your feet. It’s a jolting, jarring feeling and it’s not a very enjoyable way to start.
With LightSpeed, all that is in the past. The LightSpeed system takes off 20 to 30 pounds, just enough to reduce those impact forces and allow you to run without pain. You can run right from the very beginning with good postural alignment, and keep good biomechanics through a full range of motion. The LightSpeed system decreases injuries, helps with your running form, and allows you to run faster so you have quicker turnover. If you have tender or arthritic joints, it will help you avoid overuse. It keeps you centered on the treadmill, which helps with balance problems. Most importantly, it will make running fun again. Physical therapist and LightSpeed inventor Malcolm Macaulay says that the best part of the machine is that it lets you enjoy the sport.
“If you stop running for even a few months and start again, it’s tough,” Macaulay says. “With this system it allows you to get that feeling of quickness back. It’s no fun just slamming along.”
