BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – April 7, 2015 – Octane Fitness, LLC, the leading brand of zero-impact cardiovascular equipment, was named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work by Minnesota Business Magazine for the fourth consecutive year. Recognizing small, midsize and large businesses in Minnesota, these awards are based on leadership, benefits, work environment, innovative training programs and employee satisfaction.
“Our mission is to fuel lives, and that begins with our employees and an incredible culture of collaboration, commitment and fun,” said Dennis Lee, president and CEO of Octane Fitness. “This award continues to celebrate what keeps Octane Fitness fueled and successful.”
