ElliptiGO, levitra | Inc. , and creators of the world’s first elliptical bike, check have announced their sponsorship of Team Run Eugene (TRE), a newly-established, non-profit organization formed to help develop middle and long-distance runners for national and international competition.
With the donation of two ElliptiGOs for the TRE runners to cross-train on, ElliptiGO Inc. hopes to contribute to the success of the next generation of elite runners.
Team Run Eugene, a non-pro?t organization, was formed in 2011 to support aspiring professional runners who otherwise would not have the opportunity to continue their training post-collegiately. TRE seeks to provide these runners with the resources necessary to train as a professional athlete, including coaching, pro-bono healthcare, rehab benefits, gear, living assistance and stipends for travel.
“We strive to offer our runners the best training tools out there,” said Robert Wayner, TRE Executive Officer and Director of Rehabilitation Services. “The ElliptiGO has emerged as one of the most innovative and effective cross-training tools for runners that we’ve seen and we’re very pleased to be able to offer it to our athletes.”
Designed by runners, the ElliptiGO is the first outdoor, low-impact, fitness device specifically engineered to emulate the running motion. It allows athletes of all levels to get a high-intensity workout without experiencing the repetitive impact of running. Healthy and injured athletes alike have found it the most effective way to get an outdoor running experience without the usual pounding on their bodies.
Team Run Eugene is not alone in their adoption of the innovative ElliptiGO into their running program. Professional runners like two-time National 5K champion Lauren Fleshman, 50K American record holder Josh Cox, and elite Masters runner Pete Magill, have also incorporated the ElliptiGO into their training with great success. The ElliptiGO’s running-specific motion and low-impact design offers these athletes a comfortable and efficient way to stay in peak form.
Bryan Pate, Co-Founder and Co-President ofElliptiGO, said: “We’re very happy to support Team Run Eugene and help these young runners achieve their Olympic dreams. The ElliptiGO is a unique training tool that has caught on fast in the running community and we hope it will give the TRE runners an advantage in their training. As word spreads, we expect to see more and more athletes from a variety of athletic disciplines use the ElliptiGO to help themselves run faster and stay injury-free.”
