Max Trainer new and notable equipment

Meet the Octane Max Trainer®.

Gym Source would like to introduce you to a bold new machine that redefines intensity and challenge for home fitness. Fueling functional training, small group sessions and cardio floor workouts, the Octane Max Trainer® delivers powerful, 14-minute HIIT sessions for metabolic conditioning, is ideal for circuit training and adds variety and novelty to steady-state cardio exercise.

Learn why the new Octane Max Trainer is considered to be an effective, intuitive, progressive, and addictive cross trainer.

Easy to Use:

Get on the go, with no adjustments. You no longer must spend hours mindlessly slogging through cardio sessions and monopolizing equipment. With the Max Trainer® machine’s 14-minute workouts, you push hard during ultra-efficient intervals, recover, and repeat – and then you’re done. It’s that simple.

“The Max Trainer demands maximum effort for big-time ROI. With the 14-minute Max Interval program, exercisers tackle all-out intervals for incredible efficiency and effectiveness, torching calories, building stamina, pushing limits and achieving results.” – Rob Ignastic, Octane Fitness Consumer Dealer Sales


High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT for short is alternating periods of short, intense anaerobic exercise followed by less intense recovery periods. This makes for efficient, fast paced workouts that keep you engaged.

The Max Interval workout is designed as HIIT, incorporating rigorous intervals and recovery periods allowing users to benefit from a big calorie burn and improved stamina over a short period of time.

“HIIT is all the rage, and the new Max Trainer® delivers challenges are as tough as they are addictive. It’s a great choice for your home equipment purchase, with no adjustments, no learning curve and no intensity limits. Just get on and go!” -Dan Rehmann, Octane Fitness Dealer Sales Manager


Willing to incorporate HIIT, but love a good steady-state machine as you push towards your next 10k or rehab a training injury? For less intensity, the Max Trainer® is just as effective for steady-state cardio allowing you to incorporate workouts that contribute to your overall functional fitness.

Functional training is a classification of exercise, which involves training the body for the activities performed in daily life such as walking or lunging. Training your body to perform these exercises properly on the machine can help strengthen your muscles for general everyday use.

“Everyone loves new ways to exercise. While the Max Trainer is known for its fierce intensity, it’s also great for steady-state routines. Go at your own pace a for low-impact, total-body workout that equips everyone from beginners to athletes to look, perform and feel their best.”-Tina Nibbe, Octane Fitness Senior Marketing Manager

Wide Resistance Range:

With 10 levels of resistance, the Max Trainer® machine is equally effective for beginners and athletes and for steady-state cardio workouts, with intensity that accommodates to each user’s ability and efforts.

The unique combination of wind resistance and a magnetic brake yields a customized, virtually endless intensity that invites exercisers of all levels to hold a steady pace or tackle challenging intervals.

Addictive Motivation:

The calorie meter ensures that exercisers know how hard they are working at all times, with a real-time display of calories burned per minute. The compelling quest to bury the needle spurs extra stamina and repeat workouts.

To progress, exercisers can set calorie-burning goals in steady-state or HIIT workouts and easily see if they are achieving them – or make necessary adjustments in pace – simply by keeping an eye on the meter.

Built to Last:

Built with Octane’s signature durability for the most punishing workouts, year after year, the Max Trainer® machine withstands ongoing beatings in busy commercial facilities with reliable performance.

With a compact, heavy-duty frame, minimal maintenance and self-powered operation, the Max Trainer machine embodies ease of ownership.

Ready to commit just 14 minutes a day? This small foot print, high intensity machine is a must try. Come in and visit your local equipment expert today at your local Gym Source fitness equipment showroom to discuss your fitness goals and test-drive the Max Trainer.
