ElliptiGO Athlete Profile: Alison Leonard
October 29, 2016
2nd World Youth Champs 2007,
UK 800m Medallist 2014, 2015, 2016.
Represented GB at the European Championships 2014 and 2016, making the semi-final on both occasions.
I am targeting qualification for the World Championships in London 2017 and/or the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018.
The ElliptiGO adds a new element to my training; it’s all too easy to push through a run when you’re too fatigued or have some small injury because the alternative is an hour in the pool or sitting on a spin bike in a sweaty gym.
With the ElliptiGO you’re still able to get outside and complete the same mileage and effort that you would have done on a run, removing the temptation to run when you shouldn’t. I think this will help me prevent overuse injuries and tipping small aches and pains into real long term injuries.
