Octane Fitness and New Leaf Help Exercisers Boost Metabolism with Customized Workouts
March 05, 2008
BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Octane Fitness, LLC, a leading brand of multiple award-winning, premium elliptical cross trainers, and New Leaf, the health, fitness and sports brand from Angeion Corp. (Nasdaq: ANGN), have partnered to offer exercisers a more scientific, customized way to work out on elliptical cross trainers.
Octane Fitness and New Leaf will be introducing the first level of their product integration at the 2008 International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) Convention and Trade Show March 5-8 in San Diego at the Octane booth, #3924.
Octane Fitness cross trainers are the first ellipticals to be certified for New Leaf’s metabolic assessment, which monitors oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in a person’s breath to measure calories expended, fat utilization, anaerobic threshold and peak oxygen consumption. This information then is used as a roadmap to develop a personalized exercise program that maximizes results.
After an assessment, individuals can easily program in their prescribed workouts on an Octane elliptical to boost exercise effectiveness and help them achieve their goals.
“This reinforces our ongoing commitment to building better workouts, and is another example of how Octane is helping to personalize and revolutionize how exercise is performed,“ said Tim Porth, executive vice president of marketing and product development at Octane Fitness.
New Leaf assessments, which are available at a variety of health and fitness centers throughout North America and in select international markets, are the basis for designing customized personal exercise regimens for weight control, fitness or athletic performance goals.
“Active Metabolic Training™ helps people improve fitness, to look and feel their very best,” said Terry Kapsen, New Leaf vice president of marketing and business development. “We share with Octane the same scientific vision and dedication to making exercise productive and life-changing by working smarter to achieve real results.”
Health clubs and personal trainers now can offer New Leaf assessments on the new Octane Fitness Pro3700 commercial elliptical. Together, New Leaf and Octane give clubs a scientific, easy-to-use tool for exercise prescription, training, reevaluation and member retention.
