An End of Year Message From Our CEO

Bryan Pate

The end of 2023 caps off another fantastic year here at ElliptiGO. It is amazing to look back on how far we have come from the hand-built prototype Brent created 18 years ago. As good of an idea as we thought it was and as good of a product as we were able to create, it was not a guarantee that ElliptiGO would still be thriving in 2023 and heading into its 15th year of operations as a business next year. Since we started taking deposits for the 8S back in 2009, we’ve overcome a lot of obstacles, enjoyed truly incredible successes and persevered through many challenging times.

ElliptiGO would not be here without two extremely important groups of people: first, our dedicated team of employees, most of whom have been with our company for more than a decade, and work tirelessly to move us forward every day; and second, our wonderful community of customers, who have supported ElliptiGO through thick and thin from the beginning, and have made innumerable contributions to our success. What we have accomplished together in creating the elliptical bike industry and building this company is something all of us should be proud of.

We just received the photo to the right this week and I think it captures the spirit of ElliptiGO. There’s something about riding an ElliptiGO that brings a smile to your face. We don’t ever want to lose sight of that feature. 

Looking forward to 2024 and beyond, I could not be more enthusiastic about ElliptiGO’s future. We have completely revamped our test ride system to do a much better job of enabling our customers to help people in their communities experience the ElliptiGO. If you’d like to learn more about that and see how you can get involved, please check out our Enthusiast Program. We think this new approach to test rides is going to make experiencing our bikes much more convenient and fun. 

In addition, just over a year ago, we launched a completely new product called the GiBoard. We believe it is the best balance training tool on the market and its success in 2023 has generated a tremendous amount of energy here at ElliptiGO. More importantly, adding the GiBoard has given us another way to help people around the world perform their best for as long as possible. That’s why we come to work every day – to accomplish that mission. 

Thank you for being a part of this journey with us. All of us here are honored to have the privilege of supporting the best community of customers and athletes we could have ever hoped for. We are committed to our customers, our company, and our mission. I hope that 15 years from now all of us will be looking back on the first 30 years of ElliptiGO and feel proud of the contributions we made to improving the health of our society.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a joyous New Year!

      ElliptiGo Rocks! The community rocks! Keri super rocks!!! Best outdoor cardio bar none. Former runner with degenerative lower back. ElliptiGo has kept me in the road, trails and even able to run now and again. Have owned 5 of them and still have two. Been riding since 2016 and plan to until the legs no longer move. Thanks for such a great company that really cares about their product and customers.

    As I’ve said numerous times, the ElliptiGo is the absolute best piece of cardio equipment I’ve ever had and I’ve tried them all.
    I’m on the trail 4 days a week down here in Sarasota, FL and get asked multiple times per week about it.
    Bryan, I highly praise you and your company for producting such high quality products and I can tell you how much I appreciate people like Keri that has helped me any time I ask. I hope you, your family and your company have a very Happy New Year and many prosperous years to come !

    Thank you for the wonderful product. I bought my 8 speed Elliptigo in 2013 in Charlotte N.C. I am an 82 year old competitive road runner . I have been running since junior H.S. In addition to weight lifting it is an excellent source of keeping muscles strong to prevent joint injury. It is “a runners best friend”. This is a hot bed of running but I never see any marketing for the Elliptigo. I wonder why. Continued success. Thank you for printing my article and pictures concerning the Elliptgo and avoiding bicycle caused injuries. David A. Nachamie M.D.

    Thanks for your end of the year message. In that vain, I am about to break my personal record of GOing over 7,391 miles in a calendar year. I was even lucky enough to ride some of those miles with you! Thanks to you, Brent, and all those at ElliptiGO for a GO-reat product (and service too.) Here’s to 2024!

    Avid 57 yr old marathon runner who just had total hip replacement 2days ago. Looking forward to using my Elliptigo/on stationary during my road to recovery.

    Hey Bryan,

    I just wanted to add my thanks to you, Brent, and the rest of the ElliptiGO team (especially Keri and Erin!! 😊🥰 ) for such an amazing product and company! You all make each and every one of us feel like we’re part of a much bigger (and WAY more fun) family!! Since I had to give up running because of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and WAY too many spinal fusions and foot surgeries, my “Screamin’ Red” 8C and my 11R (“Sirius Black”) have helped me keep the little bit of sanity I have left! 😂🤣
    I also want to thank you for offering the e-assist kits!! With my degenerative condition (who knew I’d one day live up to being a genuine degenerate??) I don’t know if I would still be riding my GO if it wasn’t for that addition. Well, I guess I’d probably still be riding, but I wouldn’t be able to ride the way I want to, which is longer distances spent wandering around…the way I used to run!

    All kidding aside, I DO want to issue a very heartfelt “thank you” to each and every one of you out there at ElliptiGO HQ!! You’re a wonderful team and a wonderful company. Thank you, thank you!!

  9. Katie Blau says:

    I wouldn’t be in shape today if it weren’t for the ElliptiGO! It’s so much fun to ride. I have made lifelong friendships in this wonderfully supportive and fun community❤️ Finally, the employees at HQ are top notch and you can tell they really care about their job and the community as a whole!! Thank you Bryan and Brent for sticking to your dream and making a difference for the better in the lives if many people around the globe!

  10. Susan Elias says:

    I absolutely love my 8C! I’m on my second one! I rode my first 8C into the ground! I ride it in MS150s and other charity rides! People think I’m crazy and I make so many friends! I’m a long distance runner and my 8C offers amazing cross training! Plus it’s so much fun! I would love to be a road rep for ElliptiGo!


  11. Bill D says:

    After 35 years of competitive handball, running and other sports I was forced to look elsewhere for my exercise “fix”. I needed something fun but with the cardio and the Eliptigo was it. This is the best investment in my health and the most enjoyable I’ve ever made!

  12. Idai says:

    Well done Bryan and the team at ElliptiGO. The ElliptiGO is the best thing since sliced bread 😉 Wishing you all a prosperous new year!

    I ride or at least think about riding my Elliptigos everyday since I got my first one in 2018. I appreciate all your efforts in bringing us this great product and even more important is the continued support provided by Elliptigo’s staff. A winning combination. Happy New Year.
