ElliptiGO elite track and field athletes were stars at the USA Track and Field Championships, and many earned berths to the World Champs.
Steph is an ElliptiGO-supported athlete and was one of the first pro athletes to start integrating the bike into her training. Through many of the obstacles that she has encountered since then, the ElliptiGO bike has been particularly useful for her. With the excitement of representing her country at the upcoming World Championships, we asked her for some perspective on her journey.
ElliptiGO owners love riding their bike! But sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate, or maybe it's a great day to stay inside and focus on the workout (or catch up on some TV shows). Whatever the reason, ElliptiGOers have found many creative ways to ride their steed indoors. Check out these setups.
Kyle Merber is a professional middle distance runner whose primary goal for the 2016 season was to qualify for the Rio Olympics in the 1500m. But when he suffered a sacral stress reaction that took him away from running for a full five weeks, he began cross-training on an ElliptiGO elliptical bike. The fitness he built up allowed him to salvage the season and still qualify for and compete in the Olympic Trials final.
In the 40th running of the TCS New York City Marathon, three ElliptiGO athletes finished in the top 10 and six placed in the top 20, cheered on by Rio Olympians and fellow ElliptiGO athletes Meb Keflezighi and Jared Ward, who were co-Grand Marshalls of the race.
In the 2016 Chicago Marathon, after making ElliptiGO rides an integral part of his training, Brian Pilcher rewrote the record books as he passed through nearly every major checkpoint, establishing new U.S. 60–64 marks for the half marathon, 25K and 30K.
A new study conducted by researchers from leading universities and hospitals in the United States found that just 30 minutes of moderate exercise, done five times a week, can save you $2500 a year.
Cross-training has been demonstrated both by academic research and by elite masters athletes to maintain running fitness while reducing the occurrence and severity of injuries. We provide here two new research studies and a video of a discussion between four-time Olympian Meb Keflezighi and the former president of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Annual Meeting.
