"The Alter G permits me to over speed train and taper, helping me get to the next level", Crystal Burnick, after running the half-marathon championships.

Beginning today, the Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute (PTW) will be offering runners and aspiring athletes concerned about the health of their bones a reduced rate package to get ready for the spring running season, partnering the NASA technology of the Alter G anti-gravity treadmill, and the experience of one of the most elite runners in the tri-state area, Crystal Burnick (West Norriton, Pa).

Ms Burnick states, “The anti-gravity treadmill is a must for all elite runners looking to shave a few minutes or seconds of their PR. After a run, I train on the anti-gravity treadmill at 70% of my weight, and work back up to 100% over a period of a few weeks or a month to allow my joints to recover. As the race approaches, the Alter G permits me to over speed train and taper, helping me get to the next level. With all the running I do, the Alter G is a must in my training routine”. In the recent past, Crystal has won her age group for the Philly Rock and Roll half-marathon, placed third American in the Broad Street Run, and ran the half-marathon championships in Minnesota.

The Alter G ( provides runners an added advantage of ‘unloading a joint”, ideal for sore ankles, knees, hips, or the back. In addition, faster recovery time, increases in speed, achievement of personal record (PR), and increases in VO2 help you build mileage safely.
