Jennifer Baybrook, representative for ElliptiGO (http://www.elliptigo.com), explains:
ElliptiGO bikes are important to today’s fitness consumer because they are one of the very few low-impact outdoor exercise options that enables the user to really get their heart rate up whiling having a fun workout experience. It brings together the low impact and high-performance fun of cycling with the workout efficiency of running, so it’s ideal for those exercise enthusiasts who want to love their workout experience, get it done in a short period of time, and not beat up their body.
The ElliptiGO 3C provides an outdoor running-like exercise experience without the impact of running. It’s fun, comfortable, easy to ride and delivers a great workout. As our entry level model, the 3C lacks some of the versatility of our 8C and 11R models in terms of gearing. As a result, it performs best on flat terrain (unlike the 8C and 11R which are great for hill climbs as well as flatter areas). The 3C easily adjusts to accommodate riders from 5’0” to 6’8” and has an adjustable stride length feature to enable stride lengths from 17” to 26”. It can reach speeds in excess of 20 mph on the flats and, most importantly, really get your heart rate up during your workout. All while putting a smile on your face.
The biggest benefit is getting in a great workout in a short period of time without beating up your body. Like running, the ElliptiGO is comfortable and a time efficient exercise. Like cycling, the ElliptiGO is fun, high performance and low-impact. It uses a running-like motion that is similar to the elliptical trainer to combine the best of running and cycling outdoors.
Try one! There are more than 250 retail locations across the country that carry the ElliptiGO and all of them allow for free test rides. It’s one thing to read about it or see it, but the proof is in the pudding. The best thing to do is try one for yourself and then you’ll understand what all of the excitement is about. Once you get one, use it as your primary means of cardio training – if you’re a runner you can use it in place of running to reduce the impact on your body; if you’re a cyclist, you can use it instead of your regular bike to cut down on your workout time (the ElliptiGO burns 33% more calories than a conventional road bike); if you’re a fitness enthusiast, you can use it to get out of the gym and enjoy a gym-quality workout outside. In addition, you can participate on an ElliptiGO in more than 1,000 cycling events across the country or race other ElliptiGO riders in one of our ElliptiGO racing events.
While the 3C is our lowest priced product, the 8C is our most popular product. More than 7,000 ElliptiGOs are now on the road and the users range from everyday folks just trying to lose weight to Olympians trying to set world records. More than a dozen celebrities, professional teams from the NFL and NBA, more than a dozen NCAA teams, and more than 100 elite athletes are using the ElliptiGO as part of their training. ElliptiGOs can be purchased from a local dealer (go to www.elliptigo.com/dealer-locator to find the dealer nearest you) or directly from ElliptiGO Inc. at www.elliptigo.com.
