This one-of-its-kind fitness accessory prevents ‘flying off’ treadmill injuries while allowing the users to swing their arms and carry weights and is compatible with most of the treadmills brands found on the market.

Staying safe from treadmill accidents has finally become a reality with Connect Me Tight™ Treadmill Personal Safety Waist Belt. This uniquely designed, innovative treadmill accessory securely holds the users in position on the treadmill in case of unforeseen events such as slipping, tripping, or loss of control while working out.

Over the years, treadmill has been the most preferred alternative for fitness fanatics around the world. However, according to US Consumer Product Safety Commission, treadmills were responsible for as many as twenty four thousand accidents in 2014, and this popular equipment accounts for an average of three fatalities every year. It has also been observed that the users tend to fall prey to treadmill related accidents regardless of their age and level of expertise. Therefore, even the young and the most experienced treadmill users are not completely safe from these mishaps.

The sad demise of  Silicon Valley entrepreneur and SurveyMonkey CEO, the 47-year-old millionaire Dave Goldberg shook entire America in 2015. While vacationing in Mexico with his wife Sheryl Sandberg (the COO of Facebook), Goldberg fell and hit his head on a treadmill. Fear over the potential danger of using treadmills was brought to light by this tragic incident.

An avid fitness enthusiast and a treadmill user for more than three decades,  The founder had noticed that most of the treadmill accidents take place because of people’s reluctance to use the treadmill auto-stop emergency key/clip. The founder mentions this observation inspired her to come up with the idea of Connect Me Tight™ treadmill personal safety waist belt. Laura claims that her game changing invention stabilizes, fastens, and holds the users in place on the treadmill in case they trip, slip, or lose control. Most importantly, this lightweight and portable treadmill belt allows users to utilize the full capabilities of the treadmill as there is no need for them to hold on to the handrails for safety.  It has been established by research that holding on the handrails reduces workload, thereby reducing heart rate, calorie burn, oxygen consumption, and overall weight loss.
