BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Jan. 5, 2012 – Octane Fitness' premium Q37ci standing elliptical cross trainer was the top-rated machine – described as the “best overall” and a “high-performing, recommended model” in a February 2012 review of 18 ellipticals by a leading consumer publication.
“We are passionate about being in the #1 position, and are committed to designing superior ellipticals that deliver better results,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness (www.octanefitness.com). “With 55 Best Buy awards so far, we're continuing our history of relentless innovation.”
Popular Elliptical Wins Praise
Reviewers said, “The top-rated Octane Fitness Q37ci is solidly built, has four heart rate programs, comes with a chest strap heart-rate monitor and earned very high marks for safety.” According to the magazine, construction considers “aspects that indicate good construction methods, design choices, and our perception of quality based on operating noise, feel and the ride.” Safety evaluates pinch points, materials, stability and static loading.
The Q37ci also earned an excellent rating for ergonomics, which is defined as “pedaling motion and how well an elliptical accommodates people of various sizes.”
According to reviewers, the Q37ci “performed well in all the tests and has a nice display that is easy to read.”
Also in the top 5 rankings was Octane's Q37c elliptical, which has all the features of the Q37ci except for the chest strap, interactive heart rate programs and the CROSS CiRCUIT routines.
The unique CROSS CiRCUIT program on the Q37ci model combines cardiovascular intervals on the elliptical with strength-training exercises using Octane's custom designed Powerbands or PowerBlock adjustable dumbbells for resistance.
Combining cardio with strength training delivers greater benefits, including high caloric expenditure, improved muscular endurance and better overall conditioning. CROSS CiRCUIT programs include Lower Body Blast, Upper Body Blast, Total Body Blast and Core Focus, and six new workout DVDs are also available for additional routines.
All Q37 Series ellipticals come equipped with Octane's signature workout boosters –
X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster – that deliver distinctly effective, exhilarating regimens that yield results. The company's trademark Converging Path and MultiGrip handlebars provide comfort and variety, and goal-based programs offer motivation.
The Q37ci is available at specialty fitness retailers nationwide for a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $3,099, and the Q37c sells for $2,599.
