 Stand Up Fitness Leaders Team Up for Summer Giveaway

Stand Up for FitnessSAN DIEGO, CA (DATE) – ElliptiGO Inc., the pioneer and world leader in stand up cycling, has partnered with ISLE Surf & SUP, a premiere board company and one of the world’s largest online retailers of paddle boards and surfboards, to launch the Stand Up For Fitness giveaway. One grand prize winner and one runner up will receive close to $2000 in prizes. The contest is open to U.S. residents and is now accepting entries at

One runner-up will receive an ISLE prize package including summer essentials like water bottles, polarized sunglasses, backpacks, hats and more valued at $440. The final day to enter the sweepstakes will be July 8, and winners will be selected on July 9.

The contest brings together two sports, as well as two brothers who have become leaders in the stand-up fitness space. Bryan and Doug Pate, CEOs of ElliptiGO and ISLE respectively, are innovating in an age where sitting is considered the new smoking.

“SUBs and SUPs are changing the way people get active both in their posture and their attitude,” says Bryan Pate, CEO and co-founder of ElliptiGO. “Stand up cyclists and paddlers are not only appreciating the more comfortable, upright posture and the full-body workout, but also the pure fun that comes from engaging with the outdoors in a liberating, new way.”

“Stand up cycling and stand up paddle boarding are unique experiences that capture the best elements of summer sports you already know and love,” says Doug Pate, CEO of ISLE. “We’re daring our customers to get out of their comfort zones, engage with this innovative category and enjoy the benefits of standing tall.”
