BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Oct. 31, 2011 – Fitness Professor Review.com once again presented five Head of the Class Best Buy awards to Octane Fitness, LLC (www.octanefitness.com) for the 2011/2012 season for its standing and seated elliptical cross trainers for home use. Octane now has earned 54 Best Buy designations since 2003.
“Because we are passionate about fueling lives with our ellipticals, these awards continually reinforce our quest for even more breakthroughs that offer motivating, effective workouts,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness.
Standing Ellipticals Continue Winning
Named the Best Elliptical overall for the fifth consecutive year was Octane’s top-of-the-line Q47ci, about which reviewers said, “for those looking for the ultimate standing elliptical, it is difficult to do better than an Octane.”
For the third year in a row, the Q47c was the Best Elliptical under $4500, earning high marks for its ergonomics, smoothness, resistance and comfort. And Octane’s Q35c remained the Best Elliptical Under $2500 for the second consecutive year, praised for its narrow pedal spacing, low step-up height and “great interactive programs.”
All of Octane’s standing home ellipticals offer the new CROSS CiRCUIT, an exhilarating, efficient workout that combines cardio intervals on the elliptical with strength training exercises adjacent to the cross trainer using Octane’s exclusive Powerbands or PowerBlock adjustable dumbbells.
Seated Ellipticals in a Category of Their Own
For the fourth year in a row, Octane’s xR6ce xRide premium seated elliptical won the Best Crosstrainer award, with reviewers noting, “The ingenious design allows the user to choose upper-, lower- or whole-body exercise with either a cardiovascular or strength targeted workout – all while in a seated position!”
And the xR6 xRide seated elliptical remained the top pick for the second year for the Best Cross Trainer under $3500, as reviewers said, “Anyone from a beginner to an advanced athlete will enjoy the xRide design, and Octane has incorporated software to cover the entire range.”
Octane’s popular seated ellipticals deliver low impact, total-body challenges that offer cardiovascular and strength training benefits.
