Workouts on HydroWorx Treadmills helped to bang first step for Olympics Games

Published Date: July 10th, 2012

Oregon Project athletes coached by world-renowned marathoner Alberto Salazar the athletes were practicing in underwater treadmills to keep from missing training days, even when injured. As a result, Rupp recently shattered the United States Olympic Trials record, held by Max Keflezighi since 2004, by more than 11 seconds. Fellow Oregon Project runner Dathan Ritzenhein finished third at the trials, which means both he and Rupp qualified for the upcoming Olympic Games.

Rupp cites his years of good training as a reason for his continued success. “A lot of that is due to running on the HydroWorx consistently and being able to get a lot of miles on there,” he says. Salazar says his athletes used HydroWorx underwater treadmills right up to the trials and will continue to use them throughout the Olympics.

HydroWorx offers underwater treadmill pools, underwater treadmills, and peripheral products and services. The company reports that more than 15,000 athletes and patients use HydroWorx technology to recover from injuries and health conditions.
