BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Jan. 31, 2013 – After extensive testing, Consumer Reports in its February 2013 issue gave Octane Fitness’ Q37ci a top score among elliptical machines with heart rate programs; named the Q35c as a Best Buy and ranked it second place among ellipticals without heart rate programs; and scored the Q37c in third place for units without heart rate workouts.

“Winning first, second and third place in this competitive review of 31 ellipticals reinforces our relentless dedication to being the best in low-impact cardio equipment,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness, LLC. “More than 60 Best Buy awards overall since 2003 fuels us to continue innovating.”

Also rated the best elliptical by Consumer Reports in its 2012 review, the Q37ci received high marks for its ergonomics, construction, heart-rate features and user safety; and it was praised for its versatile handgrips. This model is the top-selling Octane Fitness home elliptical, and was recently named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things 2012.

In the category of ellipticals without heart rate programs, Octane’s Q35c and Q37c received tie scores with leading rankings in quality ergonomics, ease of use and user safety.

Leading Home Ellipticals
Octane’s premium home ellipticals feature the exclusive X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster for powerful cross-training workouts that add intensity and help drive results. The company’s trademark Converging Path and MultiGrip handlebars provide comfort, and a variety of motivating programs encourage adherence, such as 30:30 Interval, a rigorous regimen designed by Athletes’ Performance to boost stamina.

On the Q37ci model, the unique CROSS CiRCUIT routine combines cardiovascular intervals on the elliptical with strength-training exercises using Octane’s custom-designed Powerbands or PowerBlock adjustable dumbbells for resistance. CROSS CiRCUIT programs include Lower Body Blast, Upper Body Blast, Total Body Blast and Core Focus, and the machine comes with a DVD of two of the most popular workouts.

The Q37ci is available at specialty fitness retailers nationwide for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $3,099, the Q37c sells for $2,599; and the Q35c is $2,199.
