Whether you’re looking to add an elliptical to your home gym to stay in shape or motivate yourself to burn calories right from your space, there are three things to consider before buying an elliptical for your home. 

  1. Warranty & Quality

Finding an elliptical that is right for your space can be overwhelming. One key feature to look for is information on the quality of the product and warranty. An elliptical built with quality parts and a warranty that supports the product’s life shows you the type of elliptical you’re buying. So what is a good warranty? You should have trust in your machine. A robust frame warranty, like our Octane residential warranty, has a lifetime guarantee and a parts warranty of 5 years to ensure you have the parts necessary to keep your machine running. Octane’s residential ellipticals are built with commercial-grade materials, guaranteeing you receive a quality product.   

  1. Space & Installation 

Ensuring that the elliptical you want fits your space and can be installed how you want is also essential. In most cases, you’re installing this machine into a home gym, garage, living room, or basement, and you need to ensure that the area is suitable for the elliptical. When planning, you’ll want to consider your floor plan, height, footprint, room temperature so you’re machine is not cold or overheating, and machine weight for your space. Octane ellipticals are built and known to be space-efficient due to their front-drive system and design, and has become a favorite for homes. Through our website, you can select numerous options to have your elliptical installed, including curbside, first-floor installation, or any floor installation, allowing you to pick what’s suitable for your placement. 

  1. The Right Machine For You 

Finding the elliptical that is right for you is vital. Are you looking for the best price? The highest quality? The most features? Or a space-efficient machine? All of those are up to you. Some users like the extra workout features, and some look for the lowest cost. Octane has a mixture of everything that allows you to choose what’s right.
