Octane Fitness Q47xi Elliptical: The top-of-the-line Q47 elliptical machine delivers health club quality form, function and results to your home gym. These premium ellipticals are the most ergonomically advanced and technologically superior elliptical machines available. Designed to help you commit to and maintain a fitter lifestyle, they are built to last and perform exceptionally.
This original Octane Fitness innovation automatically changes the stride length to simulate walking, jogging and running. It replicates what you do outside without even thinking about it: When walking the stride is shorter and it automatically lengthens when you start running. This stride progression not only feels natural, but it increases the range, challenge and fun of workouts.
The Q47 variable stride length ranges from 18″ – 26″ allowing it to comfortably fit every person in a household. With ingenuity and comfort at the heart of its design, the Q47 enables people to move in the most natural way possible while on an exercise machine.
Real Running Motion
Octane designers have spent countless hours studying human biomechanics, and have constructed their elliptical machines to move as close as possible to the way we run. The ellipticals provide incredibly comfortable natural movement and flow, whether you’re going forward or backward. The smooth movements allow you to get a great simulated run without putting stress on the joints, something that people at all fitness levels can benefit from. The Q47 is designed with close pedal spacing (only 1.8″), ensuring that your body is correctly aligned from head to toe, which greatly reduces pressure on the lower back. All the great features of the Q47 mean you’ll exercise longer and more consistently because you feel good using the elliptical.
Octane’s patented Converging Path and MultiGrip handlebars are unlike any you’ll find on other ellipticals, making sure you get an upper body workout as well exercising the legs. These handles are comfortable for a wide variety of people to use and follow the natural path of the arms when walking or running. The MultiGrip handlebars allow users to work different arm, chest and back muscles just by changing where they grip them. The MultiGrip handlebars also have contact heart rate sensors and fingertip controls to change the speed and resistance with ease during a workout.
For all its incredible features, the Q47 is actually shorter in length than other premium elliptical machines or treadmills. The Q47 can fit comfortably almost anywhere in a home and with a low step-up height and rear access is easy and safe for just about anyone to get on and off. With a ceiling height clearance of just 8″ higher than the tallest user, it can easily be used in places with low ceilings.

Octane’s exclusive Workout Boosters, including X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster, are a great way to intensify your workouts with interval training and cross training. Instead of going along at the same speed, or a few slight variations, energize your exercise with prompts such as squat, lean back, pedal fast and more to blast the entire body. SmartLink makes these Boosters easier to perform with video demonstrations, tips and coaching. A virtual personal trainer pushes you to perform and adds variety and guidance to keep you progressing.
Why should you perform intervals and cross training? Countless research studies show that it leads to better overall results in a shorter amount of time. Research consistently shows that interval training surpasses “steady-state cardio exercise” when it comes to burning calories, increasing endurance, boosting metabolism and maintaining motivation.
CROSS CiRCUIT+ Kit
Every Octane Fitness elliptical base has connection points to attach the resistance CROSS CiRCUIT Powerbands at the front, along the sides and at the back of the machine. For added versatility, a CROSS CiRCUIT Kit includes two side steps that allow users to take their legs out of the action and isolate the upper body, along with three additional sets of Powerbands to vary resistance for different exercises or to add challenges as you progress.
With CROSS CiRCUIT, no two workouts ever have to be the same. Octane Fitness users benefit from the ultimate in cross training. Split routines will have you perform cardio only on some days, cardio and upper-body strength on others, cardio and lower-body strength on other days, etc. Use other accessories, such as a stability ball or kettlebells, for even more strength training options. Octane elliptical machines and CROSS CiRCUIT together are infinitely more than just cardio equipment – they are a total-home gym with virtually endless variety.
