How did you first hear of ElliptiGO? I read a few articles from injured runners using an ElliptGO as their preferred form of cross training. I loved the idea of being able to get outdoors to exercise and my interest took off from there. Now, I have four ElliptGO bikes and it’s the perfect replacement for running.
As a former professional distance runner and Olympian, Breeda Willis has been an avid ElliptiGO rider since 2018. Compared to biking, the ElliptiGO provides an experience much more like running, but with the benefit of traveling longer distances with less wear and tear on the body. She enjoys weekend long rides on the rural roads and rail near her home in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.
Breeda also enjoys the versatility of the ElliptiGO in her coaching business. As she works with groups of runners, she is able to ride back and forth checking on her athletes as they are spread out on training runs. All the while, she is able to get some of the training benefits herself. She firmly believes that every cross country program should have at least one ElliptiGO for their coaching staff.
How Do You Use Your ElliptiGO For Fitness/Exercise? I use my bike everyday in my personal training business. I can easily follow my athletes on the trail as they complete their workouts. It is great to zip around and see all my athletes no matter what pace they run, all the while getting a mini workout in for myself. During the week, I use the 8C and the stationary trainer to add variety to my own workout routine. On weekends, I enjoy long bike rides on gravel trails with my MSUB or long fast hilly rides with my RSUB. Each bike is totally different and working my muscles in different ways, which prevents overuse injuries.
What do you love most about riding an ElliptiGO? What I love most about riding an ElliptiGO is I get a great workout in a short amount of time. It is time efficient and there is no floating or coasting.
What is your favorite ElliptiGO bike?
I love my MSUB for riding on gravel trails.
What is your longest or most memorable ride?
My favorite local ride is the Green Circle Trail in Stevens Point. On summer mornings and cool fall afternoons, these rides do my mind, body, and soul so much good.
