Atlanta Track Club's AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill Pro 200 is open for use by all Atlanta Track Club members and the general public. We are the only local facility, outside of the Atlanta Hawks, to have this treadmill.
The Alter-G is a treadmill designed for NASA, that allows astronauts to return from space and gradually adapt to gravity over time. For runners, this machine serves two purposes. It is primarily used for athletes with injuries. It can also be used to prevent injuries by lessening impact for those athletes that tend to get hurt easily.
During injury, the Alter-G allows athletes to continue to workout the muscles used for running during most injuries. Athletes can reduce their body weight to minimize the stress and impact on their legs. The training is more specific to the sport than cross training, and it keeps the body loose, so they are less likely to get another injury when they return to outside training.
The Alter-G can also serve as supplemental training for injury-prone athletes. They can get extra mileage, without the impact. This allows them to stay healthy and continue to train and race.
