How did you first hear of ElliptiGO? I worked at Leisure Fitness, and we started to sell them.
About Mitchell Trent
Hello, my name is Mitch. I have enjoyed exercising my whole life. I am also a cancer survivor, which I attribute to my exercise routine. I worked in manufacturing for the first half of my life and then landed a dream job as the Director of Operations at Leisure Fitness. My friends and family told me it was the perfect job for “Mr. Fitness”. I was there for 17 years and recently I retired in October 2021. I have a full gym in the basement of my house to continue my workouts which I thoroughly enjoy. I was a runner enthusiast most of my life, running 3 – 5 miles every other day. I would mix in some rollerblading for 10 – 20 miles at a time. Over time, I started to feel some pain in my knees and back and Leisure Fitness started selling ElliptiGO’s. I tried a riding an ElliptiGO one day at work and I have never stopped riding them. As weather permits here in Maryland & Delaware, I ride up to 10+ miles a day. I usually ride with my wife and friends on either bikes or friends that I have talked into buying an ElliptiGO for themselves. I also enjoy pulling my grandkids in a 2-person cart with my ElliptiGO along the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal. That’s a great workout!
How Do You Use Your ElliptiGO For Fitness/Exercise? I ride my ElliptiGO’s 30 - 50 miles per week to try to stay in decent shape.
What do you love most about riding an ElliptiGO? I love to get a good workout without hurting my knees and back.
What is your favorite ElliptiGO Bike?
I have an 11R and an 8C. I love them both, but I prefer the 11R. I now have an Aqua MSUB that I’m starting to ride.
What is your favorite local ride?
My favorite local ride is the Ben Cardin/Michael Castle trail. It’s a 15-mile paved trail between Delaware City, Delaware and Chesapeake City, Maryland. It’s along the C&D Canal and there are no motorized vehicles allowed which makes it much safer than the road to ride. It’s 3 miles flat on one side and 8 miles flat on the other with some hills in the middle. There is a restaurant/bar on each end and in the middle. Benches and bathrooms along the way. 90% of my rides are there.
What is your longest or most memorable ride?
My longest ride was 2 rides. I rode the whole 15 mile trail up and back and then rode 15 miles with a friend. My most memorable was a ride from Wilmington, Delaware to Chesapeake City, Maryland with my wife. Approx. 100 yds of the road were flooded out and we continued onward.
