When I made my initial inquiry into the ElliptiGO I was a little hesitant since I had never tried one before and was concerned about the performance I would get from the 3C. The ElliptiGO 3C is exhilarating to ride! Pros: It’s mechanically well designed and very capable for moderate hills. The ElliptiGO workout is much more intense than what a regular bike can offer. I typically run 3 to 5 miles/day and would love to run more but my body just can’t take the bone-crushing impact that running causes. With the ElliptiGO I can literally run all day without the pain I get from running! It really is like running on air. The only pain is pure muscle burn. Cons: No shock absorbers. If your existing bike has them then you’ll need to adapt. The gliders do require regular cleaning. No big deal. I use a damp Scotch-Brite sponge that I cut to size so it easily fits into the glider slot.

I absolutely love the ElliptiGo 3C. It is so much easier than running (on the body) and so much more fun to do. The only place I ride is around my community, but it is really enjoyable. One main difference between the 3C & running. If one needs a break, they can always coast. Can't coast when running. I ride as often as possible 4 - 6 days per week at minimum for 1/2 hr. each time.
