“Not really old (53 1/2) but older then for whom they are designed.
I love my Trikke and ride it for 30 minutes every day. I use it for exercise and have found it to be the BEST! I have had 2 stomach surgeries since January and have Fibromyalgia. I was looking for some sort of exercise that had no/minimal impact on my body. The Trikke 6 was the answer. I am not a light weight, in fact when I got my Trikke I weighed about 50 pounds more then I do now. The Trikke is great for burning calories, raising the metabolism and TONING. I have not fallen even once have learned the place the weight in my butt and thighs for speed and it’s not boring like walking. Thanks so much.”
“When I was younger I had a pretty buff body without even trying particularly. These days, at 54, things aren’t so easy. Over the last few years I’ve noticed that inevitable sag in the chest that comes with middle-age. I’ve accepted it cause what else are you gonna do? This, despite nautilus and push ups and a pretty decent workout regimen in general..
This a.m. I was shaving and noticed something amazing.. No chest flab, and that’s only after a few weeks of Trikke-ing…I’m absolutely amazed at the effectiveness of this machine….What an ideal and rare combination…Great fun combined with just a tremendous total body work out.”
“I purchased my Trikke8 after viewing the infomercial on television. It seemed like something that would be a lot of fun and would help me get some much needed exercise. I could not have been more correct. The Trikke8 is a blast and I get quite a good workout. The great thing about it is that you don’t even feel like you are exercising. I use my Trikke in conjunction with a workout routine at the gym and I’ve gone from 210 pounds in mid-February 2005 to now weighing 170 pounds as of April 25, 2005. I contribute a lot of the weight loss to the Trikke and the great cardiovascular exercise I get riding it. Thanks so much to Trikke for creating this magnificent product. ”
“I purchased a trikke about 9 months ago, and I can’t stop raving about it to all my friends and family. I have lost 100 pounds due to diet and your remarkable 3 wheeler to which I use as an exercise machine and i cant tell you how good it makes me feel. I would love to tell the whole world about it if I could but as you know I’m not in charge of advertising. If you like i could send u a before and after photo. I do have a question about my trikke. Because of usage, I find the pad where your feet go are worn off all ready and I find I slip off the smooth surface now what can I do to get that surface that it had when new? I also wanted to say that I started doing 3 miles a day and now I’m up to 30 mile a day body permitting of course and I keep on going. Thanks so much for your invention helping me with my ongoing progress of losing weight.”
“I have been recovering from knee damage and knee surgery and consequently was integrated by the Trikke. I suspected that the Trikke would allow me to stay active and yet not inflame the bad cartilage in my knee which is made worse by bending the knee deeply. I saw the demonstration video on your website and immediately recognized that the Trikke was my ticket to freedom from confinement to a sedentary life. I almost immediately purchased my Trikke 8. That was about 4 weeks ago and I have riding every day for great distances — all with just negligible knee pain. I rode by one of the countless numbers of awestruck spectators who asked me to tell her about the Trikke and demonstrate how it works. She was the wife of a physical therapist who promised to tell my story to her husband. It is hard to hide my enthusiasm for this wonderful invention. Kudos for giving me my freedom back.”
“I am a 49 year old insulin dependent diabetic. I ride my Trikke on the average of an hour and a half every day.
I find it to be an incredibly good way to exercise that helps me to control my blood sugar, plus being extremely fun and invigorating in the process.
While riding, I have about 15 to 20 people on a daily average, stop and talk to me about it, wanting to know where they can purchase one. I tell them how much I love it and explain to them how to order one on the Internet.”
“I ride it 6 days a week now. My oldest daughter and I go out almost every night and ride. She rides a bike and I use the Trikke. Once I get on it I don’t want to stop. I feel like I am gliding. I feel so much better, I can breathe deeper now. I will be starting a new job tomorrow and in November they will be moving about 1 mile from my home. I think I will ride it to and from work.
Thanks for making such a great product.. Even though I’m not skinny and in great shape I can still get out there and ride this with my family. Sometimes they have a hard time keeping up with me!”
“Hands down, the Trikke wins. I have never had so much fun.
Now and then, over my 60 years, I’d get myself hyped-up to start exercising, but I never found something that I would actually stick with. All the ways to exercise, and I’m on my couch saying, “Nope.” Then I saw a Trikke commercial, said “what the heck,” and got my first Trikke 8 in 2003.
And I fell in love. Everyone stops me on the street to ask about the Trikke, and my “patter” goes like this:
“How does it go? Looks like magic, doesn’t it! Almost zero impact! Shifting my weight from side to side moves me forward. I can work any muscle group separately or all at once. I can do almost nothing or go all out. It’s so much fun that I can’t get off this thing until I’m tired. The sensations are as thrilling as downhill skiing or surfing, but I have to tell you, trikking is more like being an artist than a jock — you are thrilled to be in harmony with this machine.”
I have been caught. Caught hard. I come home drenched in sweat every single day, and I cannot imagine a better workout for all around general toning and muscle building. I haven’t been this fit since Elvis was on Ed Sullivan.”
