BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Jan. 3, 2006 – The Q45e elliptical from Octane Fitness, a leading manufacturer of multiple award-winning, premium elliptical cross trainers, earned the prestigious “Best of Fitness 2006” award from Health magazine in the category of elliptical trainers over $1,500.

“To be chosen by Health as the winner in this highly competitive category is a tremendous honor,” said Dennis Lee, president of Octane Fitness, “and it reignites our passion and mission to deliver the most ergonomically advanced and technologically advanced cross trainers that offer unbeatable workouts. “

Q45e lauded for special features
In the January/February issue of the magazine, Health describes the Q45e as “Not only does this elliptical allow you to stride naturally but the strategically placed handlebars help you get the most out of your upper body, and programs like GluteKicker keep things interesting.”

The Q45e is the only elliptical on the market today to offer SmartStride, which analyzes an exerciser's pace and direction and automatically adjusts the stride length accordingly. Furthermore, the proprietary MultiGrip handlebars are exclusive to Octane and offer contoured grips and various biomechanically correct positions for optimum customization and comfort.

Selecting the fitness equipment honors for the second consecutive year was Lynn Allen, president of Heartland Fitness in Ames, Iowa, and an advisor to the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association.

The Health “Best of Fitness” awards debuted in 2005 across six core categories, including fitness equipment, gear, footwear, apparel, videos/DVDS and nutritional products. Health enlists an independent panel of experts in each category to determine the best entrants. The magazine indicated that its 7.3 million readers are grateful for the clear recommendations in a crowded marketplace.

Octane Fitness Background

Fueled by a relentless passion to offer the best elliptical machines, the company is committed exclusively to delivering breakthrough, performance cross training—unlike any other fitness equipment manufacturer today.
