Aquabilt Underwater Treadmill PAT 302
Operator friendly, the Aquabilt Underwater Treadmill is totally powered by the user. As much or as little effort desired may be expended and still sustain maximum workout benefits. The speed can be varied by the user either by slowing down to a leisurely stroll or by speeding up to a running or jogging tempo which provides higher resistance for a serious workout. Walking on an Aquabilt Underwater Treadmill allows the user to fully exercise ALL the muscles of the leg, both front and back; whereas, traditional pool water walking exercises the front leg muscles only. This is because when the heel strikes the pool bottom, the surface is stationary, as compared to the resistance gained when the heel strikes the moving treadmill. This makes aquatic exercise even safer for rehabilitating injuries and for older and/or poorly conditioned individuals.
The PAT 302 is designed for the individual who is highly active in physical training. The 302 provides a baseline resistance which is at the upper level of the 201, but allows the individual to exert sustained high energy output while permitting the intermittent bursts of effort followed by recovery, emulating speedwork, which are necessary to produce superior performance.
