Fitness in 360° | Cosmic Kiss
You’ve heard of spacewalking astronauts but how do astronauts run? Join ESA’s Matthias Maurer for a workout on the International Space Station’s T2 treadmill and explore Node 3 in 360°.
Astronauts living and working on the International Space Station exercise for around two hours a day six days a week to stay fit and healthy in orbit. This helps counteract muscle and bone loss caused by life in microgravity.
The T2 treadmill is attached to the wall in Node 3 and astronauts secure themselves using a harness and bungies. This creates a feeling like running on a treadmill on Earth. This clip is just a snapshot of the exercise Matthias performs in space. A typical T2 session is around 30-40 minutes in length.
Matthias was launched to the International Space Station for his current Cosmic Kiss mission on 11 November 2021. In his approximately six months on board, he will support over 35 European experiments and many more international experiments in orbit. For more on Matthias and his mission, visit the Cosmic Kiss mission page.

How many minutes do the astronauts usually run in space? At which speed? Looking for motivation for my training;) Best, Jasan
I'm just picturing it in my head, walking on the ground against the wall. This must be a dream
I wonder, do you miss gravity? running like that is the closest activity to feel it? I love yoga because the postures work with gravity, though if I were an astronaut, then probabily I would wear a magnetic diving suit, I would be like a souvenir fridge magnet and the mat would be like the refrigerator door. My admiration to you all astrounauts with the challenge of being out there.
Is there any research on how much weight and perhaps muscle mass in particular are astronauts losing while staying in zero G?
Siempre es muy interesante poder acceder y compartir experiencias tan únicas e inimaginables!!
Guauuuu! Se ve impresionante! Y hacen su ejercicio tan natural! Saludos!
Great video !
Wow, I mean in 360° it's looks emazing. The station is very complex I think it's time to add a ring to test artificial gravity.
These 360 vids are so cool. Keep them coming ESA!!
