I feel the workout is very similar to running.

I feel like I can get my heart rate up and yet, even after a long run,
I do not have discomfort in my feet or legs, let alone my neck.
It lets me run again without the running.

The BR is the ultimate tool for building aerobic base without risk of injury.

“You find out just how effective the Bionic Runner is at training your ‘running core.’ Within a few minutes into your first ride you find your abs, quads and glutes are really working quite hard.”

Dr. Anthony
Upstate NY, USA

Another advantage of the BR is that it promotes spontaneous interval and Fartlek training.

“I find that I tend to push hard until I get breathless and then coast for a while and then repeat the cycle rather than just hold a simple steady pace with less overall exertion. ”

Dave C.
Auburn CA, USA

I try to do as much run training as possible without actually running.

“I had seen the ElliptiGO advertised for years, but at the cost, had not looked more closely.”


I decreased my time in the Prague 10km Grand Prix night event from 38:21 to 36:24, finishing 79th place out of 5,542 runners.

“After two months of commuting to work, I decreased my time in the Prague 10km Grand Prix night event from 38:21 to 36:24, finishing 79th place out of 5,542 runners.”

It is the best stand-up training and transportation machine available on the market!

“It’s a different type of running training which saves my legs and joints from repetitive pounding on the ground. It is the best stand-up training and transportation machine available on the market! ”

Glen L.
Sydney, Australia

It is the only way to get this running sensation back with no impact to my knee.

“I was the third person in the world to purchase the Bionic Runner in a Kickstarter project. It is the only way to get this running sensation back with no impact to my knee. You feel the passion the owner put in it when he designed it.”

Tom R.
Los Angeles, USA

I tend to go pretty hard on my Bionic Runner, especially on hills. I always incorporate hills.

“The standing position is probably my favorite aspect to it, and the visibility that affords. It’s also great to catch the breeze. Wind resistance is not only pleasurable but it enhances the workout.”

John R.
New Jersey, USA

I’ve run all my life. The BR is comfortable but intense, and for me it is better than running on a regular basis.

“I don’t need as much prep time (i.e. stretching, eating or lack thereof, etc.) for a Bionic Run as opposed to a normal run.”

Ken H.

The Bionic Runner provides one of the smoothest and most effective low impact experiences in the world of stand up bikes.

“No wonder the Bionic Runner has been kicking my butt. I love the great workouts I get on the BR, even on a short ride with minimal hills.”

Hector G.


“At the world Masters Athletics in Lyon, France, I clocked 11 min 38 sec in the 3000 steeplechase, ranking me 15th in the world for my age group.”

Dr. S. Olitsky

I feel the workout is very similar to running.

“I feel like I can get my heart rate up and yet, even after a long run, I do not have discomfort in my feet or legs, let alone my neck. It lets me run again without the running.”

David. N.
New York, NY USA

The Bionic Runner seemed like it was going to be a preferable mechanical motion for me.

“For the past 10 years and counting, I have had the good fortune to work with professional runners who come to New York City for road races. Sometimes you can tell from their body and the nature of injuries what they may or may not be doing to compliment their running. ”

Nicole D.

Bionic Running is not exactly the same as running, but it’s a different, unique and fantastic way to improve my vitality and condition, physically and even mentally.

“I’m definitely a competitive runner. In a race, I have a very strong need to win, to run faster than my competitors, to play with them and to reach the finish line first. A beautiful game.”

Ian G.
Edinburgh, Scotland

I probably cannot live without the Bionic Runner now.

“Like most valuable things in life, you have to give the BR time to know you. As you get more familiar and fitter, the relationship can grow and blossom.”

Bob K.

The result has been a successful marathon in September 2015, where I once again qualified for the Boston Marathon for the 13th time!

“Because I was able to get such a good, intense workout on it, I used it in place of my usual running interval workouts, saving my body from the pounding.”

S. Powell
Brisbane, Australia

I only got 12 runs in before the Berlin marathon. I did the rest of my training on the Bionic Runner.

“I was recovering from a torn plantar fascia and subsequent stress fracture of a metatarsal. I could only manage to get 12 runs in before the Berlin marathon, and the rest of my training was done on the Bionic Runner.”

Rod E.

It could revolutionize how runners train.

“It’s potentially brilliant; it could revolutionize how runners train. I see it as an opportunity to add training volume without adding to the likelihood of injury.”

Pamela D.
Pennsylvania, USA

I loved the Bionic Runner from my first ride.

“I immediately felt like my heart rate went up in a way comparable to going on a run. I also felt like my quads were instantly engaged and working, similar to running. I noticed too that if I went out for just a half hour, I had the same calorie burn and exertion as running a half hour.”

Running Specific

There are thousands of cross trainers claiming all sorts of things, but they all have one common flaw:

They are based on 50:50 swing/stance timing. They are neither like walking nor running.

The patented Bionic Runner mechanism has a timing and motion based precisely on running.

This sets the Bionic Runner apart from old school cross trainers and ellipticals.

It specifically recruits and stresses the same muscles as running, improving running-specific fitness and stride economy. You’ll love it.


Get Your HR Higher Faster

In a research article published in the ASCA Journal, The Bionic Runner was able to reach maximum heart rate achieved on an elliptical in half the time, making it perfect for both Fartlek and HIT.

Avoid Injury

The unique, dual-action of a non-impact landing and a closed kinetic chain combine to protect you from the two major causes of injury:
impact fatigue and over extension.

This is something the best running shoe on the market can never match.

We believe that by separating running-fitness-training and running-form-training, you will arrive at race day fast, fit AND uninjured.
