BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Oct. 16, 2008 – Octane Fitness, LLC, a leading brand of multiple award-winning, premium elliptical cross trainers, is giving health clubs additional choices of elliptical cross trainers with the introduction of the Pro370 and the Pro310 models.
“As the leader in elliptical cross trainers, we are committed to meeting the needs and budgets of all health clubs with Octane Fitness quality and innovations,” said Dennis Lee, the president of Octane Fitness. “The Pro370 and Pro310 deliver premium features and rock-solid durability at an exceptional value.”
Progressive Performance
Built to handle the demands of commercial fitness centers, the Pro370 is designed with a new platform that yields a comfortable, fluid, total-body motion. The ultimate in upper-body comes in Octane’s trademark Converging Path handlebars, which replicate natural movement by moving inward slightly on the forward stroke and diverging laterally by the same amount on the backswing.
In addition, the exclusive MultiGrip handlebars enable exercisers to choose from several biomechanically correct positions to recruit different muscle groups and customize their workouts. Digital contact heart rate sensors on the moving handlebars make checking intensity simple.
For the lower body, a 20.5” stride length, 1.8” pedal spacing and a low step-up height all add comfort and ease of use. New workouts include an intense 30:30 routine, developed by Athletes’ Performance, to develop endurance. And Octane’s signature X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster, which incorporate intervals of either various commands – including squat, reverse, push and pull—or greater resistance, maximize motivation and cross training benefits.
With 30 resistance levels, 16 programs, digital contact heart rate sensors on the moving handlebars and a compact footprint, the Pro370 meets the needs of health club members and managers alike. It has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $4,199.
Unbeatable Value
For superior quality in smaller, lighter traffic fitness centers, the Pro310 elliptical is an ideal value. Utilizing Octane’s Body-Mapping Ergonomics and QuadLink drive, it yields a natural, smooth motion with the popular 20.5” stride length. Plus, the exclusive MultiGrip handlebars offer unmatched variety and effectiveness for total-body workouts.
The Pro310 also includes five heart rate interactive routines and five preset resistance programs, and exercisers can take advantage of the powerful calorie-burning and toning benefits offered by Octane’s unique X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster.
The machine includes 20 resistance levels, wireless heart rate monitoring, a water bottle/accessory holder, reading rack and stationary handlebars. Comfort and convenience are enhanced by close pedal spacing, a low step-up height and a space-efficient design. The Pro310 is priced at $3,199.
Octane Fitness ellipticals are used in some of the largest health clubs in the world, including 24 Hour Fitness, Equinox, LifeTime Fitness, Gold’s Gym and YMCAs, in addition to numerous training facilities for professional and collegiate athletic teams.
