I really cannot say enough wonderful things about Octane’s equipment. I have been using an elliptical at my gym for years now, but this one is the best I have ever been on. It is so sturdy, and the ride is so smooth and quiet. There are so many different programs that you could do a different workout everyday for a month. I also love, love, love the fact that you can target specific body parts, such as the glutes! My favorite feature is the chest strap that monitors your heart rate. I didn’t realize how I naturally slow myself down often times during my workout until I had that monitor constantly telling me to keep up the pace. I would recommend this machine to anyone because it offers a wide variety of levels to introduce people to exercise as well as to challenge people with advanced fitness. This has been a pivotal part of my program.
