ElliptiGO and Ride Fit™ Unveil the World’s First Outdoor Live-Action Elliptical Training Video
ElliptiGO and Ride Fit™ today announced the release of the ElliptiGO World Championships training video - the first outdoor live-action training video specifically designed for the elliptical trainer and stationary elliptical bike.
“According to a 2011 survey conducted by SGMA Research, more than 28 million fitness enthusiasts turned to elliptical training and elliptical cycling as their main source for low-impact high-intensity exercise last year,” says Bryan Pate, Co-Founder and Co-President of ElliptiGO. "With the popularity of our indoor stationary solution, we're confident that this video training package will give people a year-round training option that will make their indoor experience even better and help them stick with their workout routine throughout the winter months."
The Ride Fit ElliptiGO World Championships elliptical training video puts you in the middle of the action as some of the world’s top athletes compete to win the 2012 World Championships of Elliptical Biking. From the comfort of your living room you can race legendary Olympians Adam Goucher and Mary Decker Slaney and keep pace with the lead pack as they battle to win the ElliptiGO Founders’ Cup and become World Champion. The grueling 11.7 mile climb up Palomar Mountain provides an engaging backdrop for your ride as you ascend 4,209 feet in just over 70 minutes.
“We were absolutely thrilled to work with ElliptiGO Inc. to film this incredible event and turn the captured footage into a virtual workout video,” says Gary Hawkins, Founder of Ride Fit™. “The ElliptiGO World Championships training video is a unique product that will bring virtual workouts to a whole new segment of fitness participants – those using elliptical machines and the ElliptiGO.”
With the widespread proliferation of devices like the Apple iPad, tablet PCs and smart phones, users can stay focused and motivated while doing their elliptical workout at home, at the fitness center or in the hotel gym. The ElliptiGO World Championships training video combined with either the ElliptiGO/stationary trainer or an elliptical machine is a valuable tool to help rehabilitate injuries, improve fitness, promote recovery, enhance motivation, get a break from formal training and enjoy participating in another sport for all cyclists, runners and elliptical machine users.
