With the opening ceremonies of the Rio 2016 Olympics now less than 45 days away, excitement is rapidly rising in the track and field world. For USA Olympic hopefuls, their biggest opportunity to date begins with the Olympic Team Trials, July 1-10, in Eugene, Oregon. ElliptiGO will be in “Tracktown, USA” supporting scores of athletes who train on ElliptiGO bikes and providing opportunities for the community to experience elliptical cycling.
Juan Reque, a physical therapist and long-time runner, suffered a torn meniscus that limited his running. After a patient described the ElliptiGO bike, Reque took one for a test ride. Immediately, he knew it was a good workout. To test the efficacy of ElliptiGO training, he devised an experiment comparing ElliptiGO and road bike cycling with running.
Say “stress fracture” to an elite runner and chances are you’ll elicit a wince. The rigorous demands of training and competing at a world-class level can bring a finely tuned body to its knees. Amanda Eccleston knows that all too well. Fortunately, she discovered how an ElliptiGO bike can keep her in top condition while reducing the pounding and chance of injury.
ElliptiGO elliptical bicycles are the cross-training tool of choice for scores of elite runners participating in the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials held in Los Angeles on Feb. 13. This year, nearly 80 runners – 56 women and 22 men – racing in the trials use ElliptiGO bikes to build strength and aerobic capacity, and to reduce or recovery from injuries.
