We LOVE using the ElliptiGO for all of our cross training needs. Whether it be indoor on the trainer or out on the streets & greenways, the ElliptiGO is the best tool to simulate running without the impact. The stride length is longer than that of the Elliptical and unlike biking, it uses the same muscles and muscles patterns as running. We love using it as a part of our training as it mimics the perfect stride!
