Tonight at 6 p.m.: Running for Life

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Alter G makes you feel almost weighless when you run. The results that come from using it are almost miraculous. It is a treadmill that was invented by NASA.

Physical therapist  Ernest Ledesma brought the first one to the Savannah area just a few months ago.

The machine lets the user take as much as weight off his or her joints as they want. For example, if someone weighs 100 lbs. and took off 50% of that body weight.

Dawn Baker is covering how the Alter G works on THE News at 6 p.m.
