Performance Driven

14-Minute Workout

Members no longer must spend hours mindlessly slogging through cardio sessions and monopolizing equipment. With the Max Trainer® machine’s 14-minute workouts, they push hard during ultra-efficient intervals, recover, and repeat – and then they’re done. With the Max Trainer® machine, they can capitalize optimal calorie burn, fat blasting and conditioning – all in minimal time!

Time-crunched exercisers eagerly welcome the challenge of these unbeatable short sweat sessions, and busy facilities benefit from rapid turnover of machines to accommodate more exercisers.

Greater and Faster Calorie Burn

The Max Interval workout is designed as HIIT, which means exercisers take on rigorous intervals and recovery periods, and benefit from a big calorie burn and improved stamina over a short period of time. HIIT has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to get in shape. And these days, no one has an extra hour to devote to cardio at the gym, so the Max Trainer® machine cranks up workout efficiency and effectiveness so exercisers can reach their goals faster.

Progressive Resistance

Are your members tough enough? With 10 levels of resistance, the Max Trainer® machine is equally effective for beginners and athletes. Sure, it’s hard work, but the intensity is accommodating to each user’s individual efforts.

The unique combination of wind resistance and a magnetic brake yields a customized, virtually endless intensity that pushes people to work harder and get results faster.

Addictive Motivation

The in-your-face 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 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.

Key Features

Total-Body Benefits

Members want efficient workouts for the maximum ROI – so all muscles must be working hard. Due to its HIIT format, the ultra-effective Max Interval workout drives exercisers to burn calories, blast fat and improve conditioning. Plus, a major HIIT benefit is the post-exercise elevated calorie burn that can last for hours after workouts – which helps boosts metabolism and leads to better results and greater retention.

And the Max Trainer® machine is high intensity but low-impact, so exercisers don’t beat up their bodies with repetitive pounding.

Quick Transitions

Exercisers love the Max Trainer® machine because they can just get on and go – without having to punch a bunch of buttons, decipher a complicated console or figure out time-consuming adjustments. The ultimate in efficiency – with no time wasted.

This is HIIT at its best, with instant resistance in response to an exerciser’s efforts, and no significant ramp-up time where heart rates can drop and intensity decreases. Its ease of use and immediate responsiveness make the Max Trainer® machine ideal for circuit training, where multiple users push their limits in rapid succession from one station to the next, and every second counts.
Fan Resistance

The beauty of the Max Trainer® machine is in its progressive intensity, provided by wind resistance and a magnetic brake. That means exercisers of different fitness levels can challenge themselves and progress continually for ongoing results. Intensity is entirely controlled by the users’ efforts throughout every workout.

The harder a user pushes, the more resistance the machine offers. This responsiveness makes the Max Trainer® machine an ideal machine for HIIT and steady-state cardio – for beginners to athletes.
Ergonomic Handlebars

Multiple hand placement options offer custom comfort to exercisers, along with valuable variety. Fully engaging the upper body on the Max Trainer® machine yields more work for the chest, back, shoulders and arms, and high intensity means that the entire body must work hard. Every muscle matters, and the arms cannot just go along for the ride!
Intuitive Console

For superior motivation, the convenient calorie meter offers instant feedback on calories burned per minute, and encourages exercisers to continually push their pace to accomplish even more. It’s addictive!

At a glance, members can track time, floors, pace and total calories, so it’s easy to make instant intensity adjustments as necessary within exercise sessions to meet goals and improve progress.

Octane HIIT

Ideal for Functional Training Areas

The Max Trainer® machine is the best choice for HIIT and circuit workouts, because users simply get on and go, without having to waste time making adjustments or programming the console. That means one exerciser can finish his/her session, and another can jump on and immediately get started.

Intuitive and easy to use, the Max Trainer® machine is a favorite among regular exercisers who want to work hard for short, effective interval sessions.
Instant Resistance Changes

With the Max Circuit program, the console individually calculates time and intensity for each user, automatically resetting to zero in between exercisers. Circuit training is simple and quick – just like it should be.

With no adjustments necessary or complicated programming, there is zero learning curve – so users can dedicate all their energy to HIIT.

Minimum Time – Maximum Results

Today’s exercisers want to get in, get on and get done – fast. All about efficiency, the Max Trainer® machine delivers big-time. Max Interval users benefit big-time from maximum calorie burn and powerful conditioning in a short amount of time, helping to drive motivation and results.

HIIT has been recognized to help boost stamina, blast calories, burn fat and elevate metabolism – both during the workout and possibly hours afterward, thanks to the bonus afterburn effect.


Faster Results

The CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout adds even more efficiency to the Max Trainer® machine by combining cardio intervals with strength-training exercises on the floor next to the machine. Exercisers use the PowerBlock adjustable dumbbells or body weight to perform a variety of exercises, benefitting from a rigorous regimen that burns calories and fat, builds muscle and boosts metabolism.

Health clubs can use CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout for individual exercisers, in personal training one-on-one sessions and in small group training – and potentially as a new revenue stream.
Compact Efficiency

The CROSS CiRCUIT Pro Kit creates a compact, versatile cardio-strength station anywhere in a facility. It includes two PowerBlock dumbbells, which are easily adjustable from 4 to 32 pounds each, and an integrated PowerBlock weight stand on the Max Trainer machine.
Advanced Training

The beauty of the CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout is the ongoing ability to progress, so that it accommodates exercisers of different levels and continues to offer challenges and novelty as people get more fit. PowerBlock dumbbells make it easy and fast to increase resistance, and other accessories, such as medicine balls, barbells and balance disks, present additional exercise variations.

The bottom line is that the CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout motivates members to push themselves, and equips them to work harder for powerful results and better retention.
Valuable Variety

Members today want virtually endless workout variety and efficiency, and CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout delivers. In addition to the PowerBlock dumbbells, additional accessories, such as a stability ball, BOSU Balance Trainer, medicine balls, kettlebells and resistance bands, vary exercises and create new challenges. Also, the order of exercises can be changed, along with the length of cardio intervals and the duration and number of strength training sets.

The CROSS CiRCUIT™ program energizes individual workouts, adds a new option for trainers, provides programming for clubs and delivers maximum ROI in a minimum space.
