 Powerhouse German Football Team at 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Fueled by Octane Fitness Ellipticals


BROOKLYN PARK, Minn., USA – June 24, 2014One of the favorites to win the title at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil competition, the German national football team is staying fueled in training camp with Pro4700 elliptical machines from Octane Fitness, LLC. PACE Fitness, Octane’s distributor in Brazil, installed the commercial units June 6 at the team’s World Cup training camp in the village of Vila de Santo André, on the coast of Bahia state.

“Naturally, we are thrilled and honored to be a part of the rigorous conditioning regimen of the professional German athletes, and our Pro4700 ellipticals with SmartStride are designed for superior training for even the most elite competitors,” said Mark Lowder, vice president of international at Octane Fitness. “They provide a great low-impact workout to maintain optimum performance during the athletes’ off periods.”

The Pro4700 ellipticals feature electronically adjustable stride from 18”-26” to best mimic walking, jogging, running and moving backwards for users of any height. SmartStride® automatically adjusts the stride based on the exerciser’s pace and direction. And the patented, one-of-a kind Converging Path and MultiGrip handlebars better engage the upper body and core for full-body engagement. Plus, a variety of advanced workouts, including 30:30 Interval, MMA, Constant Watts and Constant METs, ensure that athletes benefit from variety and cross training.

With three World Cup titles, the 23-member German national football team is led by Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, believed by some to eventually become one of the best soccer players in the world, and coached by Joachim Low. It is currently ranked second by FIFA, and statistics indicate that the team scores one goal every 30 minutes and in one of every four attempts, well above the average for other teams. The Germans are scheduled to play the U.S.A. team on June 26 for a spot in the final 16.
