The Running Center was founded in 1999 by professional running coach Mindy Solkin. The studio is located across the street from Central Park at Columbus Circle in the heart of Manhattan. This one-stop-shop for runnersfeatures an innovative training system and personal attention and offers group training programs and private coaching to runners of all levels from beginners through competitive marathoners. The convenience of Central Park with its access to the broad mix of running courses and terrain, make The Running Center your perfect training place.
Some of the features of this “Rolls Royce of the treadmill industry”:
• Softer Ride It has a 3/8” inch vulcanized rubber surface & SlatFlex™ system which absorbs the force of foot-strike at point of impact. This makes it safer on bones, joints, muscles and tendons. Other treadmills are made of PVC, with a cotton and nylon belt stretched between two rollers, over a wood deck that creates harmful foot-strike shock upon impact.
• Longer Stride The motors on most treadmills are at the front of the machine, causing your foot to hit the plastic covering. The Woodway Treadmill has its motor underneath, giving you all the room you need for a longer stride.
• Faster Speed It has a top speed of 15mph which is a 4 minute mile.
• Backwards Running
It offers backwards running for strengthening of the shins and calves.
• Downhill Running It offers downhill running to strengthen the quads and to increase stride length & frequency.
