How did you first hear of ElliptiGO? I had the privilege of meeting dean Karnazes, an avid ElliptiGOer. During our chat about ultra running, Dean recommended that I try the ElliptiGO. This stand-up bike not only would help me cross training, but it would be less impactful on the hundreds of miles I was putting on my joints. I was sold! In 2014, for a birthday gift, my wife and daughter purchased an ElliptiGO Long Stride for me.
Steve Hernandez has been running for several decades now; training and racing from 5ks to 100 mile ultra marathons. Steve has been an ElliptiGO Enthusiast for several years in Colorado, and wants to continue spreading the ElliptiGO love. In 2019, after suffering a severe back injury, Steve was unable to run, but was still able to jump on his 8C. Later in the year, his goal was to run the EC 100 Urban Ultra Marathon in California. Steve did not want to miss this race. This would be his 5th year running this legendary race. The mission behind the race is enough to get behind; raising money for kids to join their local 100 Mile Running Clubs associated with their school.
Steve's Journey with ElliptiGO
How Do You Use Your ElliptiGO For Fitness/Exercise? I use my ElliptiGO for training and racing from 5ks to 100 mile ultra marathons. My 8C is the only training I need for these races.
What do you love most about riding an ElliptiGO? I love my ElliptiGO 8C because it helps me cross train. Also, it is less impactful on the hundreds of miles I was putting on my joints. The ElliptiGO has the same dynamic training as running itself.
What is your favorite ElliptiGO bike?
All of the ElliptiGOs give a great workout based on their designated terrain; but if I had to choose one, I would choose the Long Stride.
What is your favorite local ride?
My favorite local ride is a 20 miler on the bike path in Boulder.
What is your longest or most memorable ride?
For 2019, I put in my training miles for EC100 on my ElliptiGO 8C Long Stride. On race day, I felt like I was prepared; and sure enough, I was. Not only did I finish the 101 Mile Urban Ultra Marathon RUNNING, but I PR’d that race by several hours! With only training on my ElliptiGO Long Stride!
