Combining running & cycling without impact

PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Are you a runner who is maybe looking to experience the benefits of elliptical training in a different way, or are you looking for a new way to work out in general?

There are plenty of places to see in South Florida, and plenty of ways to get there. Now, there is something new for getting around. It's called the 'ElliptiGO'. "It's definitely slightly awkward the first time you ride it," said one rider.

Although, it may look a little bizarre, the bike promises riders all the best elements of running and cycling in one machine with reduced impact.

It's being advertised as an elliptical machine that burns a lot of calories. The main selling point is that it combines the best of bicycle riding with running and doesn't strain muscles.

When we were testing it in Palm Beach, Andrew Richardson walked by, and we asked him to take a spin. "It really made me feel like i was going 35 mph," he said.

But young James McKenna was less than impressed. He said he wouldn't pay the $2,400 for it.

The ElliptiGO rolled into the Palm Beach Bicycle and Tail shop a few months ago, and the owners say it's been selling well.
