NOW AT ST. PETE RUNNING COMPANY: ELLIPTIGOS January 19, 2016 13:05 1 Comment

Ride an ElliptiGO and See What the Fuss is All About

For the first time, St. Pete Running Company is renting ElliptiGO cycles. The Arc is the newest ElliptiGO product that is lightweight, providing a nimble, responsive workout that's easy on your joints. The other model we carry is the 8C ElliptiGO cycle which gives the feeling of “running on air” from the long, smooth elliptical stride.

Both models are also for sale. The 8C model is $2499 and the Arc model is $1299. Your purchase will also apply toward Perkville points.



What is an ElliptiGO?

The ElliptiGO is an outdoor elliptical cycle that combines the best of running, cycling, and the elliptical trainer to deliver a low-impact, high performance workout outdoors.


What is the Cost to Rent an ElliptiGO at St. Pete Running Company?

Cost per person: $15 for one hour or $50 for the day. If you don't bring your own helmet, we will provide one for you.

The Pinellas Trail is directly behind our store. The employees at St. Pete Running Company will help you get started with a quick lesson in the back parking lot.


Why Should I Rent an ElliptiGO?

Are you a former runner with joint issues? An athlete who desires low-impact exercise? A person who likes cross-training?

Then you'll love testing out an ElliptiGO! The ElliptiGO is for anyone who wants low-impact, high-intensity exercise outdoors. 


Can I Try Out Both Models?

Absolutely! St. Pete Running Company has two ElliptiGO cycles in store, and they are both available to rent. The Arc and the 8C cycles have subtle differences. Two people can rent each model to take a ride together (one person per cycle).

The Arc ElliptiGO Cycle

The Arc’s sleek aluminum frame, eight gears and compact stride give you a nimble, responsive workout that’s easy on your joints. And the natural “stand up” position reduces neck, back and seat pain while giving you better visibility to see and be seen.

Whether you want to cruise comfortably, sprint off the line quickly, or hammer the hills, the ElliptiGO Arc will get you there with a smile on your face.

Price to purchase: $1299

The 8C ElliptiGO Cycle

The 8C ElliptiGO Cycle is the most popular model. Fitness enthusiasts and cross-training athletes alike enjoy the long, smooth stride, wide gear range, and running-like motion of the 8C. And the natural “stand up” position reduces neck, back and seat pain while giving you better visibility to see and be seen.

The 8-gear range helps you climb hills, sprint the flats up to 25 mph, or cruise leisurely. Price to purchase: $2499
