BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – May 10, 2011 – In his recently released book, 20 Years Younger, best-selling author and fitness expert Bob Greene emphasizes the importance of regular exercise and highlights Octane Fitness ellipticals as his one of his favorites.
“Octane ellipticals are the best I’ve seen, and I love them,’” noted Greene. “You get a great, effective workout, especially with the CROSS CiRCUIT cardio and strength interval program, the cool features like SmartStride and interactive heart rate routines.”
After riding an Octane elliptical at a hotel fitness center, Greene immediately equipped his home and training studio with Octane’s commercial xR6000 xRide seated elliptical and the top-of-the-line Pro4700 standing elliptical. In 2010, Greene bestowed his exclusive The Best Life seal of approval on Octane ellipticals, the first brand of exercise equipment to earn this honor.
Book Tour Includes Ellipticals
At the April 30 book signing at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., Greene had two Octane home cross trainers – the xR6ci xRide and the Q37ci standing elliptical – and invited people to try them, with the assistance of Octane staff on site.
In his latest 304-page book, co-authored by Harold A. Lancer, M.D., Ronald L. Kotler, M.D., and Diane L. McKay, PhD., Greene points out that following the four pillars of his plan – exercise, diet, skin care and sleep – can help readers look and feel decades younger.
“When it comes to reversing the aging process, nothing touches exercise,” he explains.
Greene is an exercise physiologist and certified personal trainer who co-authored his first book, Make the Connection – Ten Steps to a Better Body and a Better Life – with Oprah. Since then, he has written five more New York Times #1 best-selling books, and most recently published 20 Years Younger: Look Younger, Feel Younger, Be Younger!, his comprehensive guide to resisting the aging process. Perhaps best known as Oprah’s personal trainer, Greene makes regular appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and is a contributor to O The Oprah Magazine and Oprah.com.
In 2006, Greene released The Best Life Diet, and has awarded The Best Life seal to 25 major brands to identify nutritious products. Greene also developed his line of Bestlife™ foods and TheBestLife.com. He holds a M.S. in exercise physiology from the University of Arizona and a B.S. in health and physical education from the University of Delaware.
“We partner with Bob in our mission to help people fuel their lives through regular exercise on our ellipticals, and we congratulate him on what promises to be yet another best-selling, practical book that will dramatically enhance lifestyles,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness.
