The experienced tour guides at Segway of Scottsdale Segway Tours lead fleets of two-wheelers through one of two scenic Arizona cities during an extensive schedule of rides. Guests gear up for either of the 90-minute tours by hopping aboard a segway, whose self-balancing technology allows riders to tilt handlebars gently for turns or quickly for back flips. Each session begins with a 30-minute orientation, followed by a narrated jaunt past the towering opulence of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Scottsdale or around the city-flanked oasis of Tempe Town Lake. During the summer months, groups traverse the town's bridges and boulevards at dusk, stopping by landmarks such as Arizona State University and Sun Devil Stadium, whose eponymous student-athletes practice under solar-powered stadium lights to escape the chill of night.
The experienced instructors at Arizona Elite Bootcamp understand that not everyone can do a one-handed pushup or bench-press a Fiat.

After workouts, clients can log in to the website’s fitness-tracking feature to view detailed reports and graphs that show their progress.
