I am a registered nurse who works the 7pm-7am shift at the hospital. I have put on a lot of weight between finishing nursing school and working nights with nothing but junk food to eat . I decided to purchase the Octane Q35 after trying it out at Fitness Lifestyles in Asbury Park, NJ. It is WONDERFUL! It is easy on the joints and quiet. I have it in my bedroom and my husband, who hears everything in his sleep, did not known that I was working out on the elliptical. It’s that nice!
