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.
A dynasty running program has emerged in Temecula, California. Since 2010, the Wolfpack of Great Oak High School has claimed seven state championships in cross country. At the helm of these juggernauts is Doug Soles, head coach for both the girls’ and boys’ teams – and a strong believer in training on ElliptiGO bikes.
When Jane LeGore’s doctor told her, “Stop running now and don’t run any more. You need a total hip replacement,” she quickly researched options. Fortunately for our January Rider of the Month – and the ElliptiGO rider community – she soon found another outlet to rebuild her fitness and psyche.
Each month, we bestow “Rider of the Month” honors on one or more people. These riders have typically accomplished a big personal goal, raised money for charities, or set new standards for speed or endurance while riding their ElliptiGO elliptical bike. As we wrap up the 2015 year, we’re looking at the larger body of work and accomplishments, rather than zeroing in on just one. We are happy to announce the 2015 Rider of the Year – Carol Galgano. Supportive, energetic, enthusiastic and innovative all describe Galgano.

Bill Pinnell loved to ride his road bike, until a bulging lumbar disc made it too painful. He tried a recumbent, but that was no good for him either. Then, by chance, he spotted an ElliptiGO elliptical bike. That was more than 23,000 miles ago, and he's still smiling while racking up hundreds of miles a month. He earned more "Get on the Map" points in 2015 than anyone, earning him Rider of the Month honors.
