How did you first hear of ElliptiGO? In 2015, I saw a video of my brother riding an ElliptiGO, and I knew right away that I had to have one. It was exactly the type of exercise I was looking for. My first long-stride was an 8C. Since then I have purchased a 3C, two other 8C’s and an 11R.
About Tom Ruffolo
Tom Ruffolo has been a practicing physician for over 30 years in North Carolina. He enjoys the outdoors. Despite the knowledge that exercise is essential, he has always disliked the idea of exercising indoors. “As I “mature” in age, I have found that traditional bicycles were becoming harder for me to ride with aches in my back and neck. The ElliptiGO combines my need for exercise and my desire to be outdoors with no muscular or skeletal strains on my back, neck, or knees.“
His home base is in Greenville, North Carolina. But, spends a lot of time at the Crystal Coast of North Carolina including the towns of Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, Emerald Isle and Beaufort. Tom is able to demonstrate the ElliptiGOs in any of these areas.
How Do You Use Your ElliptiGO For Fitness/Exercise? The ElliptiGO is perfect for an after work activity. It helps me to unwind after a busy day and the exercise reinvigorates my energy for the evening. My routine varies from short leisurely neighborhood rides to all out work outs. I hope to be able to coordinate some group rides as well in the near future.
What do you love most about riding an ElliptiGO? Being outdoors and knowing that I am doing something positive for my health is the most rewarding aspect of riding an ElliptiGO.
What is your favorite ElliptiGO bike?
The 11R is my favorite. It allows for easier ascent on hills and faster speeds on level pavement. It is also easier to transport and lighter in weight.
What is your favorite local ride?
My favorite ride is along our greenway in Greenville, North Carolina. The bike trails on the Crystal Coast are also special.
What is your longest or most memorable ride?
I typically ride 10-15 miles at a time, sometimes longer. It depends on my work schedule and the weather.
