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.

It stands for Zealously Improving People with Fitness
I’ve had two passion for as long as I can remember, Entertaining and
Fitness. I’ve always believed that I was put here to make a positive
impact on mankind.
I’ve made a living now for over 20+ years entertaining at events
across the country. My friends and family know about my fitness
passion and would often ask advice on training. I began coaching
friends and family, they responded fantastic making great strides in
their fitness goals.
One evening I was sitting watching my little
girls’ cheer leading practice and another parent ask my advice on
losing weight. As we started talking I realized that most of these
parents were sitting around for a couple hours a night eating
concession stand food, so I organized a “Free” Fitness Group, it cost
nothing, heck I had NO EQUIPMENT. I wish I could say that I was hooked
that first night, but truthfully most the mom’s complained and moaned,
I just kept encouraging them. Watching someone do more, become more
than they think they’re capable of, that what life is all about.
Check out the Rob Snyder Trikke Workout
We use exercise gear that engages the body and excites the mind. Sure
the ElliptiGo, RowBike, Trikke and Jump Stilts are futuristic looking
machines and a blast to ride. Unlike their counterparts which keeps
you locked in a gym, usually with a TV mounted directly in front of it,
you to keep the mind occupied rather than engaged in the exercise.
The people powered contraptions we use here at ZipFit fully engage the
participant in the activity, thus giving a more intense workout i a
shorter period of time. Besides these things are really cool, a blast
to ride and I never tire of seeing smiling faces that point,
smile and laugh as I blow past. You just don’t get that at the gym!
