Octane Q47xi Product demonstration

Take a virtual product demonstration of Octane’s Q47 Elliptical with one of Gym Source’s equipment experts.

Octane Fitness is well known as a leader in creating superior zero-impact cardio equipment, and the Q47 elliptical is built to provide a solid combination of balance, performance and unique workout features. Walk through the product features, highlights and benefits below to understand why this is one of the best ellipticals for home workouts:

Space Efficient Design:

Octane Fitness specializes in designing home fitness equipment to be modern and efficient, and the Q47 home elliptical is no different. If you want home fitness equipment that can fit virtually anywhere check out this elliptical. Ceiling height clearance is only 8” higher than the tallest user, so it can easily be placed in areas with low ceilings, according to Octane Fitness.

Quality of Product:

The Q47 is built on the same grade frame as Octane’s club series; providing a very sturdy, industrial – yet whisper quiet workout experience. This elliptical is the perfect addition to your home gym because it is designed to help you commit to and maintain a fitter lifestyle, and built to last. 

Low Impact Workout:

Want a low impact workout that delivers? You have to test drive the Q47 elliptical.

Equipped with SmartStride technology, this elliptical automatically adjusts the stride length to replicate your natural walking, jogging or running movement. Additionally, you can change the stride with a touch of the button. Easily go from an 18” stride all the way up to 26” to hit more muscles and add workout variety. Customize your workout by seamlessly moving from a shorter stride (more like walking) to a longer stride that replicates a natural running motion.

Engage Your Upper Body:

People want ellipticals for a variety of reasons including, weight loss, cardio and endurance training, or just to live a healthier lifestyle. One excellent way to reach those goals is by incorporating total body workouts. Octane’s Q47 XI is equipped with built in upper body workout capabilities. The cross circuit combines cardio training with strength training intervals for an effective, efficient home workout.

The machine can act as your personal trainer by prompting you when it is time to do lean muscle toning in addition to cardio. Simply get off the elliptical, grab the bands, and begin incorporating various strength exercises – including, standing chest press, squats and core rotations. Instantly change up your workout and type of exercises by utilizing the multiple anchor rungs located on the machine.

Technologically Advanced:

Octane’s SmartLink app delivers multiple pre-programmed workout programs to keep workouts fresh, effective, and challenging. Work towards your fitness goals faster by connecting your tablet to the app, set up your user profile, select your fitness goal (lose weight, tone up, overall health, or to improve athletic performance) and get going.

SmartLink is design to provide the workout programs that can help you reach your goals faster.

Want more? Add workout boosters to train specific muscles. Simply hit the boost button anytime to incorporate;
X Mode: Almost like having a personal trainer in the machine; highlight different motions and exercises.
Glute Kicker: Increases the resistance for the lower body; target the glutes, hamstrings, quads.
Arm Blaster: Recruit more muscles in shoulder, back, biceps and triceps.

See why Octane’s SmartLink app is an excellent tool to add to your home workouts. 

Great for Anyone:

Excellent in-home elliptical choice for an individual user, or family. We consider this elliptical one of the best ellipticals for home because you can tailor your workout experience to your goals and fitness commitment.
