This powerful machine will get you exhausted and drained (in a good way) but will help you achieve all your dream goals like slapping someone and patting them on the back all at the same time. 

It is with good reason t​he AirRunner came out on top when we compared it against all the other ​models in our roundup post of the best manual treadmills on the market, which can be found here: https://traininghardcore.com/manual-treadmill

Keep reading to see all the great features of the AirRunner.

“Like running on air, but with a powerful amount of punch”. That’s how Assault Fitness describes its AirRunner treadmill.

AirRunner is one of the most natural feeling curved treadmills out there, among only a few other companies who create those curved treadmills.

The AirRunner isn’t your regular treadmill; it’s a motor-free running machine where you’re the boss!


What We Love About the Assault Fitness AirRunner

The Assault Fitness AirRunner is truly a very comfortable machine; you can walk or run on it smoothly and burn 30% more calories than the average motorized treadmills.

The reason curved treadmills burn more calories is that ​there is no motor helping to power you along whilst running. 

Also, curved treadmills allow you to run on the balls of your feet, which is a more natural and correct way of running, leading to a certain momentum that keeps the treadmill belt turning.

This whole process increases the number of muscle groups you use while running and you ultimately get the best results out of your workout. 

As soon as you start walking or running, the timer starts going and it starts to track a whole lot of aspects in your workout through the onboard monitor. Here’s a little secret for you, the AirRunner doesn’t have a maximum speed, so you can run until you feel like running on air!

One of the best features of the AirRunner is its wonderful upgraded display.

Here are some of the best readings you can get on the display:

  • Syncs to various monitors
  • Has built-in interval programs
  • Has target programs
  • Monitors heart rate
  • Shows you the distance (in meters, kilometers, and miles)
  • Tracks your wattage
  • Tracks your speed and pace (in km or miles per hour)
  • Tracks your calorie output
  • Tracks the time you spent on each workout session


Do all these things sound overwhelming to you? Well, don’t worry. AirRunner has got a very easy and simple operating system to use. Just try it out once and you’re ready to go!

The AirRunner has zero electrical consumption (because it runs on your own energy). This makes it an environment-friendly machine. 

It’s also got a durable 150,000-mile belt life, which is pretty smooth and doesn’t require you to self propel as much. It has a ​very lightweight body of 33-inch wide treadmill.

The AirRunner is considered lightweight in comparison to other curved treadmills. It has built-in transport wheels to facilitate its movement.

Other than that, there’s a nice side ramp and steady poles. Everything is quite sturdy and even looks pleasing to the eyes as well!

AirRunner is made of a corrosion-free durable steel frame, so don’t be afraid to use it as a heavy-duty machine. 

Mounting everything together is pretty easy and not very time-consuming. So are the cleaning and maintenance processes.

​Less Attractive Features

In comparison to other curved treadmills on the market, the Assault Fitness AirRunner is a bit less resistant, meaning that it runs a little faster. ​

The AirRunner is a bit on the expensive side, but in return you get a treadmill that is going to last a very long time.

​Who Would Benefit from Assault Fitness AirRunner?

AirRunner is suitable for almost everybody. It’s created to serve everyone from beginners to pros.

Some other manual treadmills are not really up to the rigours of everyday running but the AirRunner will have no such problems.

Whether you’re a beginner-level runner, a pro athlete or someone who is looking for a great calorie-burning exercise, you can’t go wrong with the Assault Fitness AirRunner.

It has nice built-in programs that can guide your workout sessions, a display that has many nice features that are simple and easy to use and a great curved treadmill that you’ll just get addicted to.

So, if you have a strong will and clear goals, the Assault Fitness AirRunner will help you achieve them all and make you run for your life, I mean, run ‘all’ your life!
