When buying a trainer it’s important to first figure out what you want, and
what features will be most beneficial to your workouts. The Octane
elliptical line has a large number of different trainers to suit a variety
of different needs, and their models are divided into home and gym. The
higher level trainers will be better suited to more serious exercisers,
while some of the lower end models offer many of the same benefits for
Unlike most other fitness companies, Octane only makes elliptical trainers.
Many gyms use Octane trainers because they swear by their high level of
durability when being used by many different people each day. Octane
ellipticals are definitely one of the higher end fitness products, with the
price range being between $2199 and $3599.
Most of the Octane elliptical trainers are the same, with the only
noticeable difference being that the Q35 and Q45 don’t have the wireless
heart rate control. The Q35 has quick start, a quick change button so you
can alter your workout at any time, five different course options, a virtual
trainer to offer advice, and a cool down mode.
The Q35e has many of the same features as the Q35, including a quick start
option that remembers past workouts, a wireless heart rate monitor, varying
intensities, and a target for lower body areas.
The Q45 also closely resembles the Q35, but has additional features like
multi-grip handlebars, adjustable stride lengths to fit each user, and a
specific program for upper body workout.
The Q45e utilizes all of the above options but also has five heart rate
programs, a wireless heart rate monitor, and a cross-training program.
The Pro35 is a more advanced model with added bonuses not necessarily needed
for a workout, but more for comfort during the workout. The pedals are more
compact, and there is an accessory tray for water bottles and magazines.
The Pro350 offers things like 25 varying resistance levels, a heavier frame
for users up to 400 pounds, and digital heart rate sensors.
The Pro350XL has the highest number of features, with all of these things
plus a longer stride length and 30 resistance levels to offer variety and
challenge to any user.
Note from Brigadoon Fitness
Octane Fitness Ellipticals are some of the best exercise machines on the market today. They have made it their mission to design zero-impact cardio machines.
We invite you to look at the Pro310 Elliptical with its space saving design, low step-up height and close pedal spacing. As with all Octane Fitness machines the Pro310 comes with workout boosters which are exclusive to Octane Fitness ellipticals, Workout Boosters such as X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster add variety and engaging intervals. The machine prompts you to squat, lean back, go in reverse, push with the arms and more for one-minute intervals every two minutes of your session. This is great cross-training to challenge your muscles differently, and helps sessions fly by!
