American distance running legend Steve Spence has been using ElliptiGO training since 2012, both for his own personal training and for the athletes he coaches at Shippensburg University. Spence grew up in Elizabethtown, PA where he attended Lower Dauphin HS and then stayed in state to attend Shippensburg University.
Just a few months ago, our ElliptiGO team was in Atlanta for the 2020 US Olympic Marathon Trials. Of the over 700 qualifiers, there were close to 100 ElliptiGO athletes competing, many of which were among the favorites to make the team. With some of the deepest fields our sport has ever seen, a record number of qualifiers, and probably the toughest course in Olympic Trials history, there was a tremendous build up to these races that would decide the first Track & Field Team USA qualifiers for the Tokyo Olympics.
The 2020 US Olympic Marathon Trials are being held in Atlanta, GA on Feb. 29, where the US Olympic Team will be selected for both the men and women to compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games this August. As the top runners in the country have been preparing for these trials, ElliptiGO elliptical bicycles have been the cross-training tool of choice for many of these athletes competing.
