BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. â€“ Jan. 14, 2013 â€“ Consumers Digest once again presented the Q47c and the Q47ci elliptical machines from Octane Fitness, LLC (www.octanefitness.com) a Best Buy award in a review of home fitness equipment in the January/February 2013 issue. It also named the Q47 Series a Best Buy in its 2010 review.
â€œWe are thrilled to have our innovation and quality consistently recognized on our premium home ellipticals,â€ said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness. â€œWinning more than 60 top awards overall since 2003 underscores our passion to be the best in low-impact cardiovascular training.â€
Consumers Digest Best Buys in elliptical machines are selected based on features, quality of construction, manufacturer reputation and aesthetics. The Q47c and Q47ci were the Best Buys among premium-priced ellipticals.
According to the product review, â€œThe Q47c is a repeat Best Buy selection, because no other model has a better combination of quality construction, smooth performance and premium features. We found this model to have the smoothest movement among models that have an automatic stride-adjustment range of 18-26 inches. We couldn’t find another model that has a program that automatically shifts the exercise emphasis from legs to arms, and vice versa, like this one does.â€
One of the trademark features on the Q47 Series is Octane’s patented SmartStride interactive ergonomics, which automatically replicates natural movements like walking, jogging, running and moving backward by monitoring an exerciser’s pace and direction and adjusting stride length accordingly. And Octane’s signature workout boosters, such as the X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster maximize cross training variety for greater results.
The Q47ci model has all of the features of the Q47c machine, plus 20 preset workouts and PolarÂ® wireless heart rate monitoring.
Available at specialty fitness retailers nationwide, the Q47c has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $4,199, and the Q47ci, $4,699.
