BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. â€“ July 28, 2011 â€“ Known for revolutionizing the elliptical cross trainer category, Octane Fitness, LLC (www.octanefitness.com) has introduced a new club xRide seated elliptical and a new commercial standing cross trainer. Both ideal for every exerciser, the xR5000 seated elliptical delivers low-impact, lower-body cardiovascular conditioning and leg strengthening workouts, while the Pro310 offers outstanding Octane quality at a value.
â€œAs more health clubs experience Octane machines worldwide, we receive additional feedback and wish lists from our commercial customers,â€ said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness. â€œBoth the xR5000 and the Pro310 were developed on demand to give facilities even more options to fuel their members with Octane.â€
Customized Comfort and Cardio
Equipped with a wide, cushioned seat and arm rests â€“ which are ideal for reading while riding â€“ the xR5000 seated elliptical eradicates the notion that effective exercise must be uncomfortable. Fifteen seat height adjustments and five seat tilt adjustments offer any size exerciser custom comfort; and getting on and off the machine is simple, with its low base and open, walk-through design that enhances safety.
More than just providing incredible comfort, the self-powered xR5000 also delivers effectiveness. Octane’s exclusive PowerStroke technology, which utilizes a longer elliptical motion to engage more muscles for greater caloric expenditure, benefits exercisers with 343% more glute activity compared to a recumbent bike, according to university studies.
And with 30 resistance levels and 16 workouts, including interactive heart rate routines and the intense 30:30 Interval program, in addition to the Muscle Endurance and Leg Press workout boosters, exercisers can take advantage of multiple options to achieve the results they are seeking.
Premium Performance at a Value
Smaller fitness centers can capitalize on Octane’s premium, progressive performance in a compact design with the Pro310 standing elliptical. Anything but standard, this machine offers Octane’s biomechanical integrity, with Body-Mapping Ergonomics, a 20.5â€ stride length, MultiGrip handlebars and Converging Path handlebars.
With 20 resistance levels, HeartLogic Intelligence interactive programs, advanced workouts like 350 calorie and 10K and Octane’s signature workout boosters, including X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster, users can personalize exercise sessions to meet their preferences and maximize cross training.
Availability and Pricing
Sold worldwide via commercial distributors and Octane Fitness direct sales, the xR5000 has a MSRP of $4,699; and the Pro310 is priced at $3,199.
