Octane Fitness Fuels Exercisers with Five New Home Elliptical Machines and Innovative SmartLink™ App

Image placeholder title

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Feb. 19, 2014Leading brand of elliptical machines Octane Fitness, LLC is giving exercisers even more reasons to get fueled with its five redesigned standing elliptical machines for home use, along with its innovative SmartLink app that links users’ goals to results. The new Q Series features advanced electronics that enhance the workout experience, including compatibility with SmartLink.

 “These new ellipticals build on our award-winning units and now integrate technology that people already know and understand to make workouts smarter and more productive,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness. “SmartLink adds variety with new workouts, incorporates coaching and tracks progress to keep exercisers committed.”

Effective Training Made Simple

The consoles on the new machines have been redesigned for simple navigation and easier visibility with a large screen that simultaneously displays essential workout data. Exclusive to Octane Fitness, select elliptical models feature the new SmartLight, a valuable visual indicator of intensity and workout changes. SmartLight illuminates to signal how hard exercisers are working, if they are in their target heart rate zone and when to prepare for the next interval in a Workout Booster or the CROSS CiRCUIT® program.

On the Q47xi and Q37xi, three placement options for an iPad® – watch, read and surf – enable multitasking during workouts, while ensuring safe and proper tablet positioning.

The Q47 Series includes digital contact heart rate sensors on the moving handlebars, and the Q37 Series and the Q35x machines have these sensors on the stationary handlebars. Plus, the Q47xi and Q37xi come standard with a Polar® heart rate chest strap.

All of the new machines offer Octane’s signature ergonomics, trademark Workout Boosters that incorporate interval training and multiple interactive programs designed to deliver results.

Smarter Workouts with SmartLink

Compatible with Octane’s new Q47xi and Q37xi units, SmartLink makes the best elliptical workouts even smarter by connecting to and controlling the elliptical from an iPad. Simple to use, the app incorporates four workout categories to help guide users toward their goal – Lose Weight, Feel Better, Get Stronger and Athletic Performance.

With SmartLink, CROSS CiRCUIT, Octane’s combined cardio and strength interval program, comes to life, with more than 225 exercises and 35 workout routines that significantly broaden options for optimal conditioning. No two exercise sessions are ever the same, enabling exercisers to add variety and create muscle confusion for better results. 

Workout Boosters are also illustrated via video, which helps keep exercisers engaged and focused on proper form for each interval.

Plus, app updates continually deliver even more workout plans and exercises – with nothing new to purchase – via a simple download.

SmartLink also runs with other apps in the background, so exercisers can watch a movie, surf the Internet or send email during their workout – all while SmartLink records data and keeps programs moving. Bluetooth® 4.0 and ANT+® connect SmartLink to the Q47xi and Q37xi, as well as to other devices, such as heart rate monitors.

Personal profile settings in the app let exercisers program in their individual data, favorite workouts and preferred feedback display. The app also tracks workouts and records results to the cloud so exercisers can monitor their progress, and the social share function lets users post successes on social networks. Users with multiple iPads have all their latest information on all devices automatically.

And with Octane Extras, SmartLink users can take advantage ofBe Fit tips and instructional videos on how to perform various Octane workouts, such as MMA and 30:30. The My Octane section is loaded with information about the elliptical, including user manuals, assembly instructions, cleaning and maintenance tips and more.

SmartLink transforms an Octane elliptical from a workout machine into an interactive fitness program that progresses and changes with exercisers to keep them fueled for a lifetime.


The Q Series machines are currently sold at specialty fitness retailers throughout the United States with MSRPs of $5,099 for the Q47xi, $4,599 for the Q47x, $3,399 for the Q37xi, $2899 for the Q37x, and $2,199 for the Q35x. The SmartLink app is available for free at iTunes® at http://bit.ly/octanesmartlink.
