BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Jan. 17, 2008 – Octane Fitness, a leading brand of premium elliptical cross trainers, continues to amass a slew of awards and favorable reviews from various media and fitness organizations. Among the most recent are Consumer Reports, Men's Journal and FitnessProfessorReview.com.

“The tremendous feedback that we've received each year from so many different groups really reinforces our pledge to provide the best ellipticals in the world,” said Dennis Lee, president of Octane Fitness.

In its review of elliptical cross trainers in its February 2008 issue, Consumer Reports rated Octane's Q37e model “excellent” with a “gym-quality feel that is more stable than most.” The home elliptical earned high marks for construction, exercise range, ergonomics and ease of use.

Men's Journal, in its February 2008 health and fitness gear guide, gave Octane's top-of-the-line Q47e model an emphatic endorsement, noting, “If Steve Jobs and Ferrari teamed up to design fitness equipment, they couldn't do better than the Q47e.” The model won praise for its electronic stride adjustment, along with the proprietary Hip Indexing Pivot (HIP) system that analyzes an exerciser's hip height and recommends an appropriate stride length to best simulate walking, jogging, running or moving backwards.

And FitnessProfessorReview.com, a new source of independent evaluations of fitness equipment by a review board of fitness professionals and industry veterans, named the Octane Fitness Q47ce the best elliptical overall in the crowded, competitive category. They also designated the Q37e unit the best elliptical under $3,000.

According to the experts at FitnessProfessorReview.com, “Without question, Octane took cross trainers to the next level when they debuted. With industry-leading features such as low step-up height, narrow pedal spacing, Converging Path and MultiGrip handlebars and interactive programs, Octane proves that focusing on one product category makes sense. It should come as no surprise, then, that five of the top 10 cross trainers on the market today are from Octane.”
