SAN DIEGO, CA (September 22, 2014)— ElliptiGO Inc., creators of the world’s first elliptical cycle, today announced the hiring of former professional distance runner and nine-time All American, Nicole Blood, to their expanding Sales Team. As the Commercial Sales Representative for the Sports Performance sector, Blood will focus on the high school and collegiate markets, introducing ElliptiGO training to more institutions and helping them integrate it into their running programs.

Blood brings a great deal of energy and her lengthy experience within the running community with her to this new position. She was a standout on her high school team in Saratoga Springs, New York. Then in college she ran at Oregon, where she was also a four-time PAC 10 Champion, three-time Academic All American, and two-time Team Captain. After college she ran professionally for Nike through 2012 and represented the NJ-NY Track Club. Since 2012, she has been the Assistant Cross Country/Track & Field Coach at Columbia University.

“My first experience with the ElliptiGO was back in 2012 when I was injured,” stated Blood. “2012 Olympian, Julie Culley, and I used the ElliptiGO for cross training and I was so grateful that it allowed me to get outside to train. Now, I’m excited to join the ElliptiGO team and use my connections to the high school, college and professional running communities to bring this incredible cross-training tool to more people. More cross-training should mean fewer injuries and better performances, which will make both the athletes and their coaches happy. So I’m thrilled that I get to help these teams learn how to integrate ElliptiGO into their programs.”

“We’re really excited to welcome Nicole to the team,” remarked Bryce Whiting, Chief Enthusiast at ElliptiGO. “The ElliptiGO brand is growing rapidly within the high school and collegiate markets, and we feel Nicole’s exceptional running background and coaching experience makes her uniquely qualified to help us bring the ElliptiGO to more of these teams. In addition, her personal experience with the product as a professional athlete make her an ideal ambassador for the ElliptiGO. We’re extremely happy that she will be helping us reach more runners at an earlier stage in their careers and teaching them how to use the ElliptiGO to run faster with fewer injuries.”
