Cycle + run = ElliptiGO

A new form of exercise is available for hire exclusively at the Channel View Leisure Centre.

The ElliptiGO is an elliptical cross trainer and bicycle in one, allowing you to ride outdoors on two wheels.

A popular route is the Cardiff Bay 10km Trail which goes through the International Sports Village.

It uses the running-like motion of a cross trainer to propel the rider, promising to deliver a high intensity workout without the jarring impact of running or the discomfort of cycling.

Assistant manager at Channel View Leisure Centre, Tom said, “You actually burn quite a lot of calories. It doesn’t quite feel like you’re working hard because it feels like you’re on air.”

“The elliptical works a lot of your lower body,” he said, “It is non-impact so you can use it if you are rehabilitating from injury.”

There are no future plans for the ElliptiGO to be available for hire anywhere else in Cardiff.
