This morning I was watching GMA like always, and saw a piece on the ElliptiGO – an outdoor elliptical bicycle. Lara Spencer rode through the streets of New York – having a blast! The ElliptiGO basically combines an elliptical trainer and a bicycle – so instead of sitting and pedaling, you are standing and “running” without the impact on your knees or ankles… or in my case – shin splints.
I have GOT to get one of these –
According to their website there are three different versions of the Elliptigo – the ElliptiGO 3C, ElliptiGO 8C, and the ElliptiGO 11R which range from $1,799 to $3,499. In September of last year they released a limited number of PINK ElliptiGo’s in honor of Breast Cancer Research… oh how I would love a pink one.
It’s like running on air! Get your fun cardio workout without the jarring impact of running or the discomfort of traditional cycling.
I have submitted for a test drive as I would love love love to check one of these out. At the gym I warm up on both the exercise bike and elliptical before hitting the treadmill, and I think it would be so cool to ditch the gym and take my ElliptiGo out all around Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, and the Beach.
You can see if there is a retailer near you – which naturally there is not one anywhere NEAR Pensacola – or you can order online and have it shipped directly to your door. After the GMA segment this morning I bet we are going to start seeing a LOT more of these things pedaling around this Spring.
Have you ever seen this before or test driven one?
Hmm…. I do have a birthday coming up… 😉
