“Because of the ElliptiGO, I’ve experienced that euphoria after not being able to run for 5 months, being able to get back out on the trail and feel the wind in my hair.”

Amanda Rego

“I picked up my first ElliptiGO to help stay fit while I recovered from my stress fracture foot injury. I found that the ElliptiGO didn’t cause my foot any grief, and I could ride 2-3hrs without feeling beat up the next day”

Katy Jermann

“The ElliptiGO was even more fun than I expected. It seemed to melt the years away and made me feel like a runner again. I was really able to get my heart rate up with no lower leg issues.”

Steven McChesney

“My fight is against time. At 73, I still don’t feel old yet and I love doing things like the ElliptiGO! I’ve always loved a challenge, and I love to push myself, and having something like this is exciting!”

Kevin Maloney
What the experts are saying
“I feel that overall fitness actually increases when doing a majority of aerobic work on the ElliptiGO. I find that I can push myself harder and maintain a higher heart rate for a longer period of time than I can by running or any other form of cross training.”

Steve Spence Olympian and College Track & Field Coach, Shippensburg University

“We have the ability to implement exercise which replicates the body's normal running motion perfectly minus the impact. A device which allows runners to improve their running fitness even while not running.”

Coach Pete Rea Professional Running Coach, ZAP Endurance

“ElliptiGO training can be done almost anywhere. It is the most enjoyable cross training our athletes do. We often replicate the exact workout someone is doing on the ElliptiGO, simply by converting the interval distance to time.”

Coach Joe Compagni College Track & Field Coach, Monmouth University

“We have injury-prone athletes that just can’t run the mileage it takes to compete at a national level. With the ElliptiGO, we can have them run a safe mileage, and then supplement those miles with extra workouts on the GO”

Coach Doug Soles High School Track & Field Coach, Great Oak High School

Our Bikes

Our two product families provide different riding experiences:

Elliptical bikes have a gentle long-stride motion that feels like running on air.

Stand up bikes have a circular pedaling motion and offer a more comfortable and superior workout compared to a traditional bike.

Both deliver a low-impact, full-body workout that burns 33% more calories than a traditional bike. Which family is best for you depends on how much you’ll benefit from the elliptical pedaling motion.
