20 Feb Octane Fitness Q37ci elliptical is one of Oprah’s favorite things
Octane took all the impressive features and quality of its previous elliptical machine and made a good thing great.
With the addition of a side platform (optional) and the more ability to truly incorporate upper body workouts, the Octane Q37ci (MSRP $3,299, AHF sale price $2,999) is now a total body complete workout machine.
Oprah had this to say about the Octane Fitness Q37ci elliptical machine after naming it one her favorite things for 2012: “Bob Greene got me into this elliptical cross-trainer, and I’m forever grateful. It provides such a variety of total body workouts, including goal programs, like a 10K and half marathon—along with digital heart rate monitoring—that you’re more exhilarated than exhausted afterward. Why not give the gift of good health?”
There it is in a nutshell — the Q37ci elliptical is a great way to get a great workout.
Here are some of the specific features:
- The innovative CROSSCiRCUIT+ and customizable interval program help provide an outstanding challenge and variety to shape and tone your body
- Powerbands and optional stationary side platforms with multiple anchor points let you perform strength training exercises.
- Converging Path handlebars with MultiGrip strengthen and tone the upper-body with the exclusively designed handlebars that offer a variety of hand positions and deliver a natural upper-body motion
- ArmBlaster helps tone the upper-body, with customizable resistance levels and interval durations to fit the needs of any level of exerciser
- 1.8” pedal spacing—the most natural pedal spacing available, mimics human biomechanics and provides optimal comfort
- X-Mode & GluteKicker are customizable workout boosters that prompt users into varied cross training actions to keep you interested, motivated, and pushing your workout to optimum results
- Heart rate monitoring and control—lets you know just how hard you are working and keeps you ‘in the zone’
- Low step-up height makes getting on and off effortless; great for low-ceiling rooms
- Space-efficient footprint is significantly shorter than other premium ellipticals or treadmills; fits conveniently in your home
- MOM Mode—promotes family safety and provides peace of mind for parents by disabling console buttons and restricting movement so little ones cannot easily move arms and pedals.
