The ElliptiGO, is the best of running and cycling combined delivering you a low impact, high performance workout while enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
The ElliptiGO is a hybrid between a bike and elliptical trainer that comes in several models. Its creators, two Ironman triathletes, claim that the ElliptiGO burns 33 percent more calories than a bike.
The equipment, which looks kind of like a bicycle that’s missing a seat, has up to 11 speeds, can reach 15-25 miles per hour and can even convert to a stationary bike.
The ElliptiGO was built with current, past and injured runners in mind, says co-founder Bryan Pate.
The ElliptiGO first became available in stores in 2010. The product has quickly grown in popularity, even without heavy company sponsorships.
Popular ultra-marathoner Karnazes is perhaps the best-known ElliptiGO user. The New York Times best-selling author, who in 2006 ran 50 marathons in all 50 U.S. states in 50 consecutive days (finishing with the NYC Marathon, which he ran in three hours flat) is an early investor in the company and has been an avid user for more than two years. As you can imagine, he puts in some serious miles.
